When there’s neither time nor energy to seize the unseizable – start with the on board sightseeing. "Northern Venice" excursion is a visitation landmark across the main rivers and canals of Saint Petersburg: Fontanka river, Kronverkskiy canal and grand Neva river. Just in an hour you’ll see all the main sights of the city while our guide will be telling you more than a few exciting stories.
Let’s imagine how it will happen…
Fontanka river. Your journey will start at the quay of Anichkov bridge, which is located at the very corner of Nevsky prospect and Fontanka river embankment. You, as if in a time machine, will see the milestones of city’s development. Sheremetyev’s palace, which was given as a gift for the reclamation of swampy lands from Peter the Great, as well as Anichkov palace of Russian Royal family, Beloselsky-Belozersky palace, Mikhailovskiy castle will float beside you.
Grand Neva river: In the beginning of your journey you will lay your eyes upon the facades of Saint Petersburg. It’s a view to die for, from the luxurious estates of the Neva’s embankment. You will see Peter and Paul fortress – the place of the foundation of our city. Gaze at the glory and subtleness of Summer Garden railing, the very one chanted by a famous Russian poet Alexander Pushkin. Old Saint Petersburg Stock Exchange and Rostral Columns, Winter palace and Kunstkamera will be seen in their prime glory.
The ship will pass around the Peter and Paul Fortress along the narrow Kronverkskiy Canal past the Petrograd side.
And Fontanka river again.
In the end of your journey you sail once again along the banks of Fontanka river , past Summer Garden, palace of Peter the Great, tiny but beloved monument of Tschischik-Pyschik (Yellowbird the Puffer, character of Russian folk rhymes) and St. Michael’s Castle.
You journey will take place in any weather conditions – cruisers have decks and comfortable glazed interior spaces.
