1970s, Soviet Union, St. Petersburg, Hotel “Astoria”. A piece of seductive Western world in the coldest big city in the world. And this was a special “only for VIP and foreigners” advertisement to attract them into this forbidden world in Soviet country. Just a few photos to feel the times.
By the way it’s not the only Soviet hotel appealing to foreigners we had on this blog. For example this one is a funny ad for the hotel in Soviet Tallinn. Or if you are into the Soviet hotels then this post is about Moscow hotel in Soviet times.
