Full description
This night trip that travels under raised bridges will let you fully embrace the beautiful views of St. Petersburg by night. 

Marvel at architectural ensembles, view the unique shape of the St. Petersburg skyline with a recognizable string of spires and domes and see a variety of bridges. During the cruise, see palaces and noble mansions, notable cathedrals in the city, the hand-made island of New Holland, the building of Mariinsky Theatre, the renovated Chinezelli circus, the granite walls of the Peter and Paul's Fortress and the gold-plated spire of the Peter and Paul's Cathedral.

The views you see will take your breath away. Views that are particularly fabulous from the water are the ingenious ensemble of the spit of the Basils Island, the peculiar pattern of the Summer Garden fence, the mysterious St.Michaels Castle, and the square of the seven bridges. Join this tour and enjoy an unforgettable experience.
