"Take a cruise on the Neva" Rivers and Canals Tip by Dabs

Rivers and Canals, Saint Petersburg: 83 reviews and 201 photos

There are several ways of cruising on the Neva ranging from almost nothing to lots of cash.

Our first cruise in 2003 was with our tour group. It cost us $25 per person for a group of about 30 and our guide was the narrator so I think we chartered the boat for a couple of hours.

Our second cruise we picked up at Peter and Paul Fortress. For 100 rubles each, they gave us a 40 minute cruise, taking us past the Church of the Spilled Blood and dropped us off close to the Hermitage. For 100 rubles I would have paid just not to have to walk all the way back! I think there was also a round trip option for slightly more.

Directions: You can find boat trips at Peter and Paul Fortress or at many other locations along the canals and Nevsky Prospect.
