Description of the route
A boat trip along the St. Petersburg channels is a must for any tourist program. Petersburg was conceived as a city on the water, an analog of Venice and Amsterdam, and rightly deserved its name "Northern Venice".
The excursion departs from the pier near the famous Anichkov Bridge, runs through the entire Fontanka to the Kryukov Canal, then goes to Moika to the Winter Canal, from where it will return to the pier through the Great Neva along the Peter and Paul Fortress. This is the only route that includes a tour of the entire Fontanka river deep into the city.
24 bridges await you to discover its legends and enticing histories. By each turn you will see beautiful palaces and castles. This excursion through the channels of St. Petersburg will show you the best architectural monuments of "Northern Venice". And at night, take advantage of the unique opportunity and visit the Special offer 2019: Drawbridges excursion on a two-deck steamboat. Where you will see the drawbridges in all its beauty.

Please note: in case of water level rise the route changes: Neva-Fontanka-Neva, due to the fact that the boat can not pass under the bridges of the Moika River.
