FIABCI-RUSSIA is pleased to extend an invitation to all real estate professionals throughout the world to attend this important forum and be among the first to get the insight of the challenging transformations and impacts of the further integration of the East European members into the European Union, to have an access to the first hand information on investment climate and business opportunities in Eastern Europe and Russia, to make your own judgement on the legal and economic reforms that have dramatically changed the business environment and enhanced the real estate market accessibility for international investment.
It’s a great honor for Saint-Petersburg to host the 2004 European Congress of FIABCI. Saint-Petersburg is the second largest city of Russia founded by Peter the Great in 1703. It is well known cultural and important scientific and educational center. UNESCO recognized Saint-Petersburg as one of the ten most beautiful cities in the world. It impresses one by a combination of magnificent architecture with strict planning of its broad streets, squares, gardens, canals and famous museums: the Hermitage, Russian Museum, St. Isaak Cathedral, St. Peter and St. Paul Fortress, Peterhof Palace, etc.
Our social programme has been designed to show you some of the most spectacular sights in Saint-Petersburg and give you plenty of chances to visit both the historic and the modern locations that make this great city so unique. The unforgettable gala-dinner in an exciting venue will round off the week.
Welcome to Saint-Petersburg – the Northern Capital of Russia – rightly called an open-air museum!
