Location and Accommodation

The ninth European Summer School in Financial Mathematics will take place at the Management Traning Center of the National Research University "Higher School of Economics" located in Pushkin, near St. Petersburg.

The city of Pushkin is named after Alexander Pushkin, the great Russian poet who studied and spent part of his life there. It was founded in 1710 and known as Tsarskoye Selo, or Tsar's village prior to 1918. Many Russian tsars had their summer residences here, leaving an impressive architectural heritage behind them.

The Management Training Center is located across the street from the world-famous Catherine's park and Palace. Pushkin itself is situated about 24 kilometers to the south of the center of St. Petersburg and less than 10 kilometers away from St. Petersburg International Airport. It can be easily reached by local train, bus or taxi.

Participants will be accomodated at the Management Training Center which also provides catering.


St. Petersburg International Airport (LED) is linked with regular daily flights to most European capitals. The Management Training Center can be easily reached by taxi, which can be booked upon your arrival at one of the official taxi stands located inside the terminal building. The agent at the stand will give you a voucher and directions to find your driver, who will be waiting in the car outside the terminal. Do not follow unregistered taxi drivers who may approach you inside/outside the terminal building. You may want to print / write down the address of the conference center and take it with you:

Учебный центр подготовки руководителей, улица Радищева 4, Пушкин, Санкт-Петербург


Citizens of most European countries need a visa to enter Russia. Visa waiting times may be long, especially in summer, so please request your visa as soon as you receive the acceptance letter from the organizers, who will also provide necessary application documents.
