Preparation steps:

  • Start preparing by looking up the art galleries in Saint Petersburg, decide on the day, plan your route, and jot down their opening hours. As it is a low-budget date, prioritize visiting smaller, less touristy galleries that usually have a lower entrance fee or sometimes, free entry.
  • Dress appropriately for the weather, but also chic enough to blend into the art scene. As walking is involved, ensure that you and your partner wear comfortable shoes. Also, familiarize yourself with basic art appreciation terminologies. It’ll deepen your understanding of the art pieces you’ll be seeing and make your discussions more engaging.
  • Get a small notebook and pen to note down your thoughts on the paintings for later discussions with your partner. This is an essential tool to facilitate communication and connection; it'll provide a lasting memory of your shared experience.

Some tips:

  • As an etiquette, keep your voices low and be respectful when discussing artworks; remember, art is subjective and everyone has their own interpretations. Also, remember not to touch any artworks on display – oils from human skin can potentially damage them.
  • If either of you doesn't know much about art, no worries. The point isn't to understand every piece perfectly, it's about how the art makes you feel individually and what feelings it stirs up when you discuss it together. Just relax, enjoy, and let the art move you.
  • Remember to keep some time between visiting different galleries and don't rush your visit. It's not about seeing as many paintings as possible, but absorbing and appreciating the beauty before you.
