2, Theatre Square

As part of the SPIEF 2024 cultural programme, the Unified Contractor in the Construction Sphere company invites Forum participants to see how the world-famous Rimsky-Korsakov St. Petersburg State Conservatory is being renovated. The new building is set to be officially unveiled during the second half of 2024.
During the tour, Forum participants will be given a unique opportunity to view the Conservatory’s late 19th century interiors, originally created by architect Vladimir Nikolya, and now recreated using historical technologies and materials. For the first time, the public will be able to see the paintings in the Chapel, by famous artist Andrei Ryabushkin, which were thought to have been lost, but were discovered during the current restoration work.
The area covered by the renovation is 31,000 metres. The state contractor for the work is Unified Contractor in the Construction Sphere, and the general contractor is Polytekhstroy-Svargo.
Tours will be conducted by professional restorers from the general contractor company twice daily, at 10:00 and at 17:00, throughout SPIEF, which takes place on 5–8 June 2024.
The entire route around the construction site is equipped in accordance with health and safety standards, and all participants will be provided with personal safety equipment (hard hats and fluorescent safety vests).
