The SPBILF host city is one of the world’s finest destinations

St. Petersburg turns into the world’s law capital on the days SPBILF is running. Leading minds of the legal profession attend SPBILF events while admiring the city’s amazing cultural heritage sights.

The events of the SPBILF business programme take place in the General Staff Building of the State Hermitage Museum in the very heart of the city – Palace Square.

Главный штаб

The General Staff building, a prominent architectural landmark in the very centre of St. Petersburg, was designed by Carlo Rossi and built in 1820–1830. Erected across from the imperial residence – the Winter Palace – the magnificent classical edifice of the General Staff completed the harmonious look of Palace Square and its status as the administrative heart of the imperial capital. The western wing of the building housed the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, while the easterly wing was reserved for the Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Empire.

On display in the rooms of the General Staff are numerous notable specimens of Russian and European painting, sculpture and applied arts from the 19th though 21st centuries.

The State Hermitage was rated the best museum in Europe and one of the world’s top three in 2016. When they visit St. Petersburg, many international travellers admit that the Hermitage alone “makes it worthwhile to visit Russia and St. Petersburg.”

The business programme of the St. Petersburg International Legal Forum has been hosted by the General Staff Affiliate of the State Hermitage every year for nine years. We are proud of our long-standing partnership with the State Hermitage - it inspires us to set sights on new, greater goals.
