History and description

Petrovsky Stadium opened on July 26, 1925. The first football match was played two weeks later when a team from St. Petersburg (Leningrad) took on a team from Kharkiv (5-1). In honor of Vladimir Lenin, the stadium was named V. Lenin Stadium. The initial stadium capacity was 10,000, but it was already expanded to a capacity of 25,000 by 1933.

Since the Second World War, the stadium has been damaged by being used for anti-aircraft artillery. It took until 1957 for the stadium to be reconstructed and become what we know it as today - a huge Kirov Stadium.

The Lenin Stadium had a capacity of just over 30,000 seats before it was rebuilt. However, few football matches were played at the stadium because Zenit played its home matches at the Kirov Stadium.

The stadium underwent a last major renovation in the late 1970s to make it ready for the 1980 Olympic games. During which, it hosted several matches of the football tournament and served as a training base.

In 1992, the stadium was renamed Petrovsky Stadium and underwent a renovation which reduced its capacity to its current total. Soon after, Zenit made it their permanent home.

The Petrovsky Stadium was still far from being a modern arena, but in late 2008, Zenit started the construction of the new Saint Petersburg Stadium at the site of the former Kirov. Due to various delays, an initial completion date of 2009 was pushed back several times, and the new stadium only got completed in April 2017.

It is a mere 30 minutes walk from the Hermitage and Palace Square to the stadium. Cross the bridge over the Neva river opposite Palace Square onto Vasilevsky Island, and 200 metres later leave the island again via the next bridge over the second branch of the river. Keep left parallel to the river and after a few hundred metres you will see the stadium in front of you.
