ATP tennis tournament St. Petersburg Open 2013 took place on previous week. Latvian Ernests Gulbis captured the singles title while the Spanish team David Marrero / Fernando Verdasco have triumphed in the doubles. For a whole week TOHOLOGY had a chance to observe this sports event. You can find review of the most interesting moments in our special report.
A St. Petersburg Open off-court activity took place in the Grand Hotel Europe. Mikhail Youzhny and his son Maxim joined the hotel chef Glen Cooper and his assistants for a cooking session. They made ravioli and their Russian equivalent pelmeni.
Daniel and Samira Charbonnier held an open seminar “Catch the trend: the hospitality industry”.
TOHOLOGY is launching a series of articles “The Hospitality Industry. Companies”. We met with Selim Olmez, Marketing Director at W St. Petersburg, to talk about the history and the concept of the W Hotels chain.
The history of this truly mysterious place dates back to the foundation of Saint Petersburg. Once the first renovation stage was finally over, the New Holland’s park zone welcomed first guests in August 2016, while from then onwards the island will remain accessible the whole year round.
