Location and a few facts from the history of the hotel

Foundry yard – the historical district of St. Petersburg – appeared shortly after the founding of the city, in 1711, on the initiative of Peter I. Until the middle of the XIX century, large factories that produced artillery weapons were located here. After the closure of the enterprises, the importance of the Foundry District as an industrial quarter was lost.

Gradually, the Foundry yard began to be built up with three- and four-story buildings in the classical style. The area has become one of the most prestigious in the city. In May 2010, after a long reconstruction in one of the historic buildings, the doors of the Radisson Sonya Hotel, which was distinguished by its original design, were opened.

In the interior design of the hotel, motifs and themes taken from “Crime and Punishment” – the famous novel by F. Dostoevsky – were used. In the foyer there are shelves with books by the world-famous writer. The works of the presented collection in Russian and foreign languages were published in different years in Russia and abroad. On the walls and signs of the doors of the rooms you can see quotes from “Crime and Punishment”, as well as portraits of the writer himself.
