Boat Trip

The Venice of the North.

A great plan for a sunny day and as a rest from walking around the sights is to sign up for one of the boat tours offered at various points around the city. Seeing Saint Petersburg by foot or by bike is not the same as seeing it by boat: you'll get a whole new perspective and understanding of the city. With around 70 canals and rivers and 50 islands, Saint Petersburg is known as the Venice of the North. There are various companies to choose from and tours are usually around an hour and a half to two hours. Since prices vary depending on the company and on how many people are on the tour, we recommend dropping into the tourist office on Nevsky Prospekt for more information.
