Night-time boat tour "Stories of Drawbridges"



The best way to enjoy a breathtaking view of opening bridges in St. Petersburg is to take a midnight trip on a comfortable double-decked boat. Admire the illuminated facades of the city’s top attractions as you travel along its charming canals and rivers. If you happen to visit Saint Petersburg during White Nights, especially do not miss the opportunity to be shown around the city from water. Its scenic embankments and majestic architecture are particularly beautiful in this captivating semi-daylight.
