St. Petersburg was founded 300 years ago by Peter the Great, the first Russian emperor, on the banks of the river Neva and the Finn gulf. Its location contributed to the division of the city into numerous islands by rivers and channels, which is the reason why it is sometimes called the "Northern Venice". Take a boat trip along the channels and catch a glimpse of the splendid views of the glorious city.
Boat trips will take you along the beautiful rivers praised by many Russian classics - Fontanka, Moika, Griboedov Chanal, Krukov Chanal, Winter ditch, Swan ditch and the main river of the city – the Neva.
