A visual delight and an extremely mesmerizing experience of this beautiful calm river which shrouds different looks during different times of the day and year. A walk next to the river is an experience worth a lifetime.

If people just walk along this avenue, the Neva Embankments (Nevsky Prospekt), they can start getting the vibes of St. Petersburg: exquisite, spacious, historical, but full of modern vibes as well. Gateways towards experiencing St. Petersburg.
