The return to Antique Saint Petersburg

В наличии

Unique features of the route: you are going to have a unique journey through Griboedov’s canal passing beneath the low arcs of its 12 famous bridges. There’s no passing for ordinary naval vehicles but our company has special cruise ships that will smoothly take you beneath even the lowest bridge of Saint Petersburg – Kazan’s bridge.

Fascinating naval journey through Griboedov’s canal

A leisurely journey through Griboedov’s canal can’t be compared to taking a walk by foot. The charm of the old 18-19 century city will accompany you, telling its secrets, taking you into the centuries passed.

This journey is similar to an animated book. You will see the buildings that Dostoevskiy inhabited with Sonya Marmeladova and an elderly pawnbroker. Windows overlooking the canal that were loved by Pushkin, Griboedov, Gogol, Tchaikovsky, Zoshenko and Akhmatova…

You will sail beneath the first stone bridge of Saint Petersburg that has remained unchanged since the 18th century. You will take pleasure in looking at the golden wings of Bank bridge lions… But let’s not rush ahead because you will hear a fascinating talk from our guide about all the sights of the route.

“The return to Antique Saint Petersburg” route

The route begins from Neva river. You’ll sail through the main naval arteries of the city: Neva river – Fontanka river – Kryukov’s canal – Griboyedov’s canal – Moyka river – Winter canal.

Along the Neva river banks you will the grand imperial Petersburg: Peter and Paul fortress, Old Saint Petersburg Stock Exchange and Rostral Columns, Senate square and Bronze Horseman, Admiralty building, Winter palace, Marble palace and the marvelous railing of Summer Garden.

Then the cruise ship will sail to Fontanka river with the buildings from Peter the Great’s era – Summer and Sheremetiev palaces, St. Michael’s Castle, Anichkov palace,  Beloselsky-Belozersky palace, famous equestrian sculptures of Peter Clodt on Anichkov bridge.

Further on the route – Kryukov’s canal and Griboedov’s canal where, as you remember, the entrance for numerous touristic ships is forbidden. You will see the famous seven bridges from a crossing between two canals. You will sail past St. Nicholas Naval Cathedral and Kazan Cathedral, The Church on the Spilled blood, famous Book house.

The cruise ship will sail through Moyka river past the memorial flat of Alexander Pushkin, and further – through Winter canal under the Hermitage bridges into the aquatorium of Neva river, where you will once again see the grandeur of Saint Petersburg.
