The Neva is a Beautiful River. I took 2 rides. One that took us to out to the Open Water. We got to see All of the Buildings in Town and the Beautiful Monuments. We also took the Hydro foil to Petehof Palace. Super Rides.

A river trip is a great way to see the many sights of SPB - including these embankments. You will certainly get to see some fine sights. Well Worth a visit.

If you walk the Neva with an online guide to direct you and give some explanation - you will see much of the buildings and architecture that make this city so wonderful. Include a walk across the Troitsky Bridge to get some perspectives

Yes there are. I did the Neva river and canal trip, (twice - thanks to Mr.Putin's state visit). We should have done the Aurora trip, but it was cancelled because Putin was there.
