Terrassa

If you happen to stay in St. Petersburg during the summer, you should definitely pay a visit to Terrassa. The menu is extensive and diverse but truth be told: the real reason you go to Terrassa is to enjoy one of the city’s best views. The restaurant is located on the top floor of the tallest building in the historical center and from the outside terrace you can see the Kazansky cathedral and the famous Nevski Prospekt street. The interior is modern and bright and because of the open kitchen you might just be able to catch a glimpse of head chef Alexander Belkovich, who started here at only 21 years old. With great enthusiasm he prepares interesting dishes ranging from Italian to Asian cuisine. Reservations are a must at Terrassa. Be sure to indicate that you want to be seated outside with views of the cathedral; you will not be disappointed!

UNIQLO

The Japanese textile company UNIQLO is quickly becoming New York’s hottest retailer. Be sure to pay a visit to the brand’s flagship store in Soho to stock up on your favorite basics. Every (basic) garment you could possibly need can be found here and they are all made from the most huggable fabrics such as cashmere and merino wool. The best part is that it’s SO cheap that you can’t leave the store without at least one item. You can get a basic V-neck cashmere sweater for as little as $89,50 or a longsleeve natural skin T-shirt for only $12,90. With all those neat piles of colorful and touchable items, you’ll feel like a kid in a candy store! The good thing is that you don’t necessarily have to make the trip to one of the 3 New York stores since UNIQLO is also coloring the streets of London, Paris, Moscow as well as many Asian countries.
