St Petersburg's night from the water

A boat trip along the canals or the Neva River, in St Petersburg, is one of the best experiences in this historical hub, and all from the water. Admire the view, during the day, and if you wish, you can have it over the night and get the chance to see the white nights, the raising of bridges and the impressive night illumination of the city.

St Petersburg brigde

The bridges linking Neva's borders are raised during the night for several hours to let the merchant boats pass, and this has become a famous, unique and characteristic show in St Petersburg, attracting thousands of people.

Spectators wait for it in the river's embankments, excursions are also organized as well as night boat tours to see it from the water.

Of course, this is only held during summer; in winter, the rivers and canals are frozen, thus bridges are not raised.

Hire a car in St Petersburg to live this amazing city in a more comfortable and reliable way.
