The Fourth Eurasian Women’s Forum will take place on 18–20 September 2024 at several major convention and cultural venues in the historical centre of St. Petersburg.




TAVRICHESKY PALACE

The main events of the Forum business programme will take place at Tavrichesky Palace.

Tavrichesky Palace is an outstanding example of St. Petersburg architecture and represents the best of the city’s landscaping, history, and culture.

Some of the most prominent architects, painters, decorators, gardeners, sculptors, and portrait artists from the 18th through the first half of the 19th century contributed to its creation and transformation.

Located in St. Petersburg’s historic centre, the palace stands next to Tavrichesky Garden, one of the city’s most beautiful parks.

Address: 47, Shpalernaya Ulitsa, St. Petersburg, Russia

Since 1992, Tavrichesky Palace has served as the headquarters of the Interparliamentary Assembly of Member Nations of the Commonwealth of Independent States.

The palace offers high-tech equipment to support the work of Forum participants along with a splendid historic interior. The palace features a wide range of rooms and halls suitable for holding major international symposia, conferences, forums, and business meetings.




PARLIAMENTARY CENTRE

Located just 10 minutes from Tavrichesky Palace, the Parliamentary Centre will also host a number of business programme events. The Centre’s modern, multi-purpose halls are ready to welcome Forum guests.

Address: 53, Shpalernaya Ulitsa, St. Petersburg, Russia

In addition to CIS Interparliamentary Assembly services, the Parliamentary Centre also hosts the Centre for Settlement of Economic Disputes among the CIS states.




UNIVERSE OF WATER MUSEUM COMPLEX

A number of events on the Fourth Eurasian Women’s Forum programme will be held at the Universe of Water multimedia museum complex, which is located at the site of St. Petersburg Vodokanal Information and Training Centre opposite Tavrichesky Palace.

The Water Tower, which marked the beginning of centralized water supply in St. Petersburg, was built in the middle of the 19th century. In the early 21st century, St. Petersburg Vodokanal carried out a major restoration of this imposing structure.

Address: 53, Shpalernaya Ulitsa, St. Petersburg, Russia

The goal of this reconstruction was to preserve the tower as an architectural monument while simultaneously making the museum as vibrant and contemporary as possible, rethinking the space of the old industrial building and providing it with new uses.
