PRIBALTIISKAYA HOTEL (14 Korablestroiteley Street). A hotel built in 1976-78 (architect N.N. Baranov, S.I. Evdokimov, V.I. Kovalev, engineer P.F. Panfilov) by the Swedish civil engineering firm Skanska Zementgutteriett. It was intended for foreign visitors arriving during the Olympic games of 1980. The 15-story building has 1,200 rooms (for 2,400 guests), a business centre, a hairdresser's saloon, a beauty saloon, and other amenities. Dining facilities on the 2nd and the 15th floors include bars, banquet rooms for 900 guests, several restaurants with separate kitchens and beautiful interiors (Leningrad, Pribaltiisky, Daugava, Neva, Pushkin, and others), and 3 conference halls (for a total of 1,660 people, on the 2nd floor). The shape of the building reminds one of the letter “H”; the lateral sections are slightly turned, providing the effect of opening towards the city and the sea. Dolomite from Saaremaa and anodized aluminiumwere used in the decoration of the facade. A sculpture titled The Conquest of the Baltics was erected in front of the main entrance (1982, sculptor E.M. Agayan). The Pribaltiiskaya is a central element of the square, and a dominant aspect of the city's facade as seen from the Morskaya Embankment and Baltiiskogo Flota Embankment. In October 1990, a memorial dedicated to the memory of the Kirov Cruiser (2 gun turrets from the major calibre) was opened near the hotel. Among those who have stayed at the Pribaltiiskaya are J.-P Belmondo, F. Sagan, M.L. Rostropovich, German Chancellor G. Schroder, and others.
