Neva River, Canals and Bridges

St. Petersburg Russia

Like many European cities, the river in St. Petersburg features prominently in the life of the city and its residents. The wide, cold Neva separates districts, flows into the city's multiple canals and makes use of its hundreds of beautiful bridges such as the Lantern Bridge, Kissing Bridge and Postal Bridge. The banks of the river are also home to many of the city's palaces, statues (such as Egyptian sphinxes and Statue of Bronze Horseman). In summer, take a boat tour at night to watch the bridges brought up and down for bigger ships to pass through. Indagare members can contact our bookings team to arrange for a private boat cruise.
