    Passing by Kronshtadt on a cruise

    by globetrott Written Jan 3, 2016

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the way that most western tourists will see Kronshtadt: from the cruiseship while going to or leaving St.Petersburg. I passed by Kronshtadt onboard of the cruiseship M/S Vistafjord many times, while I was working there between 1979 and 1985 and at that time Kronshtadt was totally off-limits for foreign tourists and also taking photos from the ship while passing by was a risk, because it was the naval base for submarines and a top-secret in the times of the "Cold War"
    Nowadays you mostly see ordinary ships there, no more submarines and tourists can even take a bustour from St.Petersburg in order to explore Kronshtadt. About 43.000 people are living there now.

    Kronshtadt is in a distance of about 1 hour sailingtime from St.Petersburg !

    Go to Kronstadt by bus from St.Petersburg

    by globetrott Written Jan 3, 2016

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a daily busline all year long that takes you to Krohnstadt from St.Petersburg. The bus number 510 starts in front of the Metrostation Staraja Derewnja (=violet Line) and takes you from there to Kronstadt within about 45 minutes. Lots of local people will take the buses as well, after all there are 43.000 people living there, so be prepared that these buses might be quite full in the rushhours and dont rely on the very last bus !

    Nowadays the most comfortable and also the fastest way for tourists to go from St.Petersburg to Kronshtadt is the high-speed boat, the hydrofoil "Meteor" that departs daily from Dvortsovay Naberezhnaya, close to the Hermitage: During the summerseason the boats will depart four times a day and they are also quite cheap. Within 45 minutes you will arrive in Krohnstadt.

    From Saint Petersburg to Kronshtadt by sea

    by wad_white Updated Jun 13, 2010

    One of the ways to the naval fort, and possibly the most comfortable and beautiful. High-speed boats "Meteor" departs daily from Dvortsovay Naberezhnaya (Palace Embankment) (near the Hermitage: +59° 56' 28.60", +30° 18' 44.70"). Boats depart four times a day. Schedule on holidays is little more comfortable than on weekdays.
