PROTO Invention Factory is situated in the historic Noblessner Foundry. The history of the Noblessner shipyard goes back to 1912, when two Saint Petersburg businessmen built Tsarist Russia’s most important submarine factory here. They were Europe’s foremost oil tycoon Emanuel Nobel and the owner of Lessner machine works Arthur Lessner. Combining the surnames of the two men, the shipyard was named ‘Noblessner’.
Tired and hungry inventors are welcome to eat and relax at the café on the ground floor of the PROTO Invention Factory. The café offers both fresh salads and warm meals in addition to healthy smoothies and tasty pastries. The café also caters to daytime conferences and events in our halls.
