Canal tour options

by cttibbits

We'll be located at the Passenger River Terminal, "Rechnoy Vokzal" on board our River cruise ship. Any advice as to best place to get a canal cruise boat or water taxi to tour the St Petersburg canals?

Re: Canal tour options

by Natalya2006

The Passenger River Terminal, "Rechnoy Vokzal" is for long cruises (to Valaam island on Ladoga Lake for example). If your want to go by rivers and canals in the city the locations are
Griboedov Chanal (metro Nevsky Prospect)
Moika River near the bridge at Nevsky prospect (metro Nevsky Prospect)
Anichkov Bridge (Fontanka River)(metro Nevsky Prospect - Gostiny Dvor)

Travel Tips for Saint Petersburg

Cathderals and Churches

by Audrey118

There are so many churches, cathderals, and there is even a mosque and a Tibetan Buddhist temple. The mosque is much more interesting than the temple.

The churches are terribly awesome; many have just been restored and some only open as a 'museum' to the public.

Foreigners have to pay for entrance to most churches, it cost around 100 -250 rubles and extra between 50-100 rubles to take photos in the churches.

Russian churches are mostly Russian Orthodox (the parish priests must be married so that to understand the life of family people but not the head of the Orthodoz church). Also all Russian orthodox churches has a East--West direction, with the main entrance of the building at the west end.

This symbolizes the entrance of the worshipper from the darkness of sin which is the west into the light of truth which is the east.

Also special to the Russian churches, are the beautiful onion shaped domes, not one but many many domes. These domes are colourful, and also some of them have a Cross on top, symblosing salvation.

So when you enter from the west, the extreme end is the east, is the Holy Altar.
Also you will notice the importance of icons. If the church is say Church of St Basil, you will see the picture of the icon on the right side of the altar. Russian Orthodox churches have lots of icons all over the church, be it on the wall, ceiling every where.

Saint Petersburg Tip

by Andrew_Vodo

Another mark of the XX century - this memorial pannel on the Winter Palace says: 'At night 25-26 of October (7-8 November), 1917, the Winter Palace - the residence of the russian Tsars, the residence of the last government of the capitalists - was attacked by the revolution army'.

Ice Cream

by Canadienne

Ice cream is a favourite in both St. Petersburg and Moscow ~ stands can be found on almost every street, as well as in department stores and other less-expected locations.

From early in the morning (a meal replacement for some, perhaps) through evening, you'll see kids, business people, soldiers and any other "type" of person with an ice cream cone or treat in hand. Picking up this local custom is the perfect key to blending in to the Russian population. . . ;-)

Go ice sledding in the city

by sennaya

With a sled or just on your fanny you can enjoy sliding down ice in many local parks.
Entrance is free and the only hazard is watching for the many children who might want to slide into you.
Free!

For more exercise you can rent a Finlandski sled on Krestovsky Ostrov. One person can ride while the other stands and pushes and rides the rails when possible. Plastic snow sled or just your waterproof pants.

Summer Gardens ~ Ivan Krylov (Detail)

by Canadienne

Krylov's fables featured animals, so the base of his monument is carved with scenes from his stories.

The carvings are not at all child-like and charming though, several bare teeth and claws. . .and there are even a couple of menacing scenes of violence.
