"River Neva" Canals and Rivers Tip by mettemal

Canals and Rivers, Saint Petersburg: 23 reviews and 31 photos

Favorite thing: When in Saint Petersburg during winter take a walk on the river if possible. It's a fantastic stroll. A trip to the Summer Palace is also fantastic in winter - next time I will arrive in a sleigh and feel like a real zarina.

Fondest memory: The river is really special during winter. The ice creates beautiful formations along the river banks. Also the sight of locals sun bathing in -15 degrees celsius is rather unique.
