English Bookstore in St. Petersburg

English bookstore in St. Petersburg

I was never a Kindle user until moving abroad. I prefer paperback books and always dreamed of having my own library, but the selection here is so limited. Most bookstores offer the same old books that I’ve either already read or am just not interested in. If you like to read a lot like I do, then I firstly recommend you invest in a Kindle!

If you find yourself without a Kindle and are really needing a book, you’re just looking for a good gift for your English-speaking Russian friends, or looking for teaching material then you are in luck!

Dom Knigi

Dom Knigi has the biggest selection of books in English for personal reading.

Open: 9 am – midnight

Foreign Literature Book House

This is my favorite place to find teaching material – they have it all and I’ve found cheaper prices here than the other stores.
