    Channels of St. Petersburg

    Griboedov's channel

    St. Petersbourg, as Brugge in Belgium, is also called 'Northern Venise' because of its numerous channels. Just take a boat and observe them,,, the feeling like in parisian Bateau-mouch,,, nice views and relaxing atmosphere.

    Cruising along from St. Michaels Castle to Belinskogo street, we passed by many beautiful Art Nouveau buildings. This area is more upmarket, and by the buildings, it certainly showed that!

    Another way to see parts of St Petersburg are via a canal boat trip. It was a great way to see St Petersburg from a different perspective!

    Don't stand up when going under the bridges!

    Whenever we visit a new city, if available, we try and take a river cruise. It gives you a different perspective of a city, and St Petersburg is no different.

    Boats leave from many places on the canals, i took one at Nevskiy Prospekt. The trip took 1 and quarter hours and cost 500 RUR. A good way to see the colourful buildings of St Petersburg.

    The Neva river is lined with palaces, museums and various other sites. It is a large river and is used by large ships as well as by rapid enclosed boats to the suburbs.

    canals

    One of the city's most remarkable features is the network of canals. Hundreds of those small canals are cutting through the city, crossed by an uncountable number of bridges.

    Boat Tour

    Taking a tour around the city in a boat is something you should not miss. The tour takes about 1h and gives you a nice impression, why Saint Petersburg is called Venice of the North

    The time of the year I was there, there was still ice in the canals. The buildings in St Petersburg are so beautiful. This view repeats itself many times all through the city.

    A walk by the rivers and the canals.
    St. Petersburg was built almost like Venice - there are many canals all over the city. The bridges are beautiful.
