“Wash and dry” – laundries in the center of St. Petersburg
Absence of laundry services in the hotel or hostel you are staying at can become a real problem for a traveler.
A lot of laundry and dry-cleaning outlets in the city are focused on services for corporate clients. For individuals they offer only linen washing and expensive dry-cleaning. Such laundry points can be found in all the big shopping centers. The most convenient, fast and cheap way for tourists to take care of their clothes is to visit a self-service laundry (one visit takes about 2 hours). Another way is to order laundry services by phone, but it will be quiet an expensive and time consuming choice (your order will be delivered back from 1 to 3 days).
