XXIV International Workshop on Water Waves and Floating Bodies

April 19-22, 2009


Pre-Workshop Tour

Dear Friends,

Those of you who like to spend a time in Saint Petersburg (SP) before the Workshop please contact me by email (tkhab@ngs.ru). The idea is to gather together at the airport in SP on Saturday morning and move to city at 11am by bus provided by the Workshop Committee. Preliminary (we need to arrange this and match parts all together) plan is to use this bus to make a city tour, then have a lunch and to walk around by foots, then move to the hotel in Zelenogorsk around 6pm. Either we go to Mariinsk theater Saturday evening and stay one night in SP with transfer to Zelenogorsk next morning. For those, who like to stay in SP 2-3 days before the Workshop, please e-mail your requests to IWWWFB@onlinereg.ru for reservation. There is a chance that I will come to SP well before the Wokshop and can make a group of you to visit the most important places in SP.

With the very best regards,


Preliminary Program (16-19 APRIL):
