30 min

By day or by night, the most spectacular view of St. Petersburg can be seen from the water. The unforgettable panoramas of the Hermitage, squares and enbankments. A city was built over 42 islands, so St. Petersburg is surrounded by water and interlaced with a complex web of rivers and canals that seem to bind the city together, while also marking the borders of its different districts and neighborhoods. The slow ride by Nikolsky cathedral belltower, or throught the tunnels of the wide bridges, or under the glass walkway of Mariinsky theater, where the light is barely seen on the other side is an experience you'll never forget. St. Petersburg's architecture means that great vistas of the city are often visible from the water, and therefore an essential part of any exploration of the city is to get out in a boat and cruise the rivers and canals of St. Petersburg.

1 hr
