This embankment provides an unbeatable 2-kilometre promenade with some unforgettable sunsets.
When in Saint Petersburg, you can't miss a stroll along the Palace Embankment, also known as the Neva Embankment after the adjoining river. This is one of the best places in the city for watching the sunset as it bathes the buildings along the embankment in a beautiful, orange light. You can walk the embankment from the Senate to the Summer Palace of Peter the Great, covering a total of 2 kilometres. A stroll from end to end is a great way to see some of the city’s best canals and aristocratic buildings. Why not start early to fit in the Winter and Summer Palaces, Isaac Square and a general look around the area, and then find a good spot on the Embankment to catch an unforgettable sunset.
