Field of Mars

The Field is named after Mars, the Roman god of war. In the 19th century this field was used mainly for military parades and exercises (yellow barracks of Mikhaylovski regiment are overlooking the field) and as a result it was so dusty that people called it "Sakhara desert in the middle of St.-Petersburg". Today it is a pleasant area with bushes and lawns, which among other things offers a spectacular view on a number of sights: Church of Resurrection of Christ, Mikhajlovski castle and the Troitsky bridge, designed by Gustav Eiffel.

Different life stories, but the same dreams for a baby bring Ulrika from Norway and Willeke from Netherlands to St. Petersburg...

“…When I left the clinic and walked down the Nevsky Prospect I knew I was pregnant — and the feeling was right! 9 month after her visit at the AVA Clinic Alexander was born!”

"...If I would have known at the start, what I know now, I would not have done my IVF-attempts at my age as egg donation gave us result straight away. It was the best decision of our lives!"
