River transport in St. Petersburg: river stations, river tram in St. Petersburg
Water-buses and pleasure boats form a small fleet of the Northern capital. The navigation season opens in April, and until the end of November there are plenty of ships with tourists from all over the world. However, on a nice summer day Petersburgers also admire the city's architecture from the water.
It is easy to get on the rivers and canals tour. You just have to walk around the center of St. Petersburg. On the pier of the Faberge Museum there are motor ships - you can travel back in time of the famous jeweler on them. Vessels docking at Anichkov Bridge are ready to show their passengers the famous sights of Northern Venice, and then go out into the Neva to take your breath away.
You can find a boat for travel on the embankment of the Moyka River, Griboyedov Canal; English, University and Palace embankments, etc.
Night water excursions are very popular – almost everyone wants to see drawbridges. Opposite the Admiralty there is a slipway with lions, where everyone is offered evening cruises.
If you are planning a romantic date, then the CityBlues jazz steamer is the perfect choice where you can listen to music, have a snack, and enjoy the view. It is recommended to buy tickets in advance. There are other large two-deck motor ships that run along the Neva and its arms. As the saying goes, for every taste and color. It is easy to find a map of city piers on the Internet.
Maybe you dream of getting by water to Peterhof, the city of fountains and palaces? Meteors (hydrofoils) leave from the pier opposite the Hermitage and will take you to the destination in just 30 minutes.
As for trips outside the Leningrad Oblast, the river station on Obukhovskoy Oborony prospect and two berths at the Bolshoy Obukhovsky Bridge (Utkina Zavod' and Solyanoy) send vessels to Moscow and Kazan, to the islands of Valaam and Kizhi, to Novgorod and Pskov, etc. We wish you the great impressions!
