Can you imagine a weekend lovelier than on a boat discovering Saint Petersburg’s vast network of canals?

Founded in 1703 by Peter the Great, Saint Petersburg was destined to go into history as the Marine Capital of Russia and the best way to explore it is from the water. For centuries boat rides along the numerous rivers and canals have remained a common pastime for local aristocracy and their European guests. 

The city is surrounded by water like Venice or Amsterdam. There are more than 80 rivers and canals. It has the highest number of bridges and every bridge is a piece of art with its own history and design. The drawbridges of St. Petersburg are the technical masterwork and the favorite attraction for a visitor.

All of the above makes a boat ride an essential part of a city sightseeing for those who want to explore St. Petersburg, experience the curves of its rivers and canals, take a look at the city’s beautiful architecture from a totally different angle.

Our expert guide is at your disposal to show you St. Pete’s sights and lights. Start your journey any time of the day. Catch the rosy light of the dawn or gently sail through the lucid northern night or feast your eyes on the splendid 18th century palaces in the morning mist.
