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

  Water Taxi, St. Petersburg
by Canadienne

Favorite thing: The canals of St. Petersburg are worthy of a Must-See tip, but their importance is much broader than that. . .the city was founded on its network of waterways and the maritime connection has never lessened in importance.

Fondest memory: A boat ride on the canals is the best way of appreciating them ~ and it's a fantastic way to get a new look at bridges and embankments.

We picked this boat in the photo based on its size ~ there are many larger ones, some of which can't enter smaller canals.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
