The city built on numerous rivers and canals is undoubtedly worth seeing from the water. In addition, the river service often helps in cases of hopeless traffic jams inherent in any metropolis. Petersburg is unofficially called the Venice of the North, which means that there should be plenty of water transport here. Where and what to sail - find out and understand

Before planning a boat trip around the Northern Capital, you need to consider that this is possible only in the summer. Navigation along the waterways starts working around April and stops in October-November. However, you should not be upset about this, because from a river walk in winter you would not have an exciting experience, but a runny nose and numb fingers.

So, let's take a closer look at everything that can and should be used to sail in St. Petersburg.


At first glance, the most convenient type of water transport in St. Petersburg seems to be an aquabus. His ancient great-great-grandfather was a river tram, launched back in 1873. And only in the 2000s, water buses appeared, which promised to be an excellent alternative to land transport in St. Petersburg, constantly standing in kilometer-long traffic jams. Alas, this did not happen, because of the five routes operating in 2011, covering almost the entire city and connecting it with the island of Kronstadt, only one remained in 2015. However, according to St. Petersburg residents, even the survivor works badly. Often, due to weather or inexplicable reasons, the aquabus can wait at the bus stop for about an hour and be left with nothing.

If you believe the sites with the schedule of aquabuses, then they should run with an interval of no more than 30 minutes. from late May to late October. On weekdays, transport operates from 9:00 to 21:00, and on weekends and holidays from 10:00 to 21:00. The line includes the following stops: Staraya Derevnya, Chernaya Rechka, Petrogradskaya Embankment, Arsenalnaya Embankment, Kronverksky Strait, Bronze Horseman, University Embankment. At the same time, the fare on the line from the Old Village to Arsenalnaya Embankment and from Arsenalnaya Embankment to Universitetskaya Embankment costs 100 rubles each. each on weekdays and 191 rubles. on the weekend. Accordingly, you will have to pay twice as much for the full route. The privileged category of citizens travels with a 50% discount.


Meteor is such a cute hydrofoil ship that takes tourists from St. Petersburg to Peterhof in 45 minutes. It departs from the pier "Lower Hermitage" at the Palace Embankment, 39. Arrives at the berths of the Lower Park of Peterhof. From St. Petersburg meteors float from 10:00 to 17:00, and from Peterhof from 11:00 to 18:00. The intervals between flights are about 30 minutes. The cost of one trip is 700 rubles, or 500 rubles. for preferential categories. If you buy a ticket in two directions at once, it turns out cheaper.

In addition to cruises to Peterhof, meteors connect the city with such distant sights as Kronstadt, the Oreshek Fortress or the Valaam Monastery. Usually on such flights, in addition to the beautiful views, you will also receive fascinating stories from the guide. The schedule and prices should be checked on the websites of the shipping companies or at . u, where, by the way, it is convenient to book tickets.
