Full description
Embark on an exquisite night trip that follows bridges across the Neva river and fully embrace the beautiful views of St. Petersburg by night in privacy.

Leaving distractions of the crowd behind, marvel at architectural ensembles, view the unique landscape of St. Petersburg skyline by night with a recognizable string of spires and domes. Watch a variety of bridges complete their seasonal navigation parade, raising their arms for the ships to come through.

During the cruise, pass along the palaces, noble mansions, and notable cathedrals. Let the boat drop the anchor by granite walls of the Peter and Paul's Fortress and watch the process under the glow of the gold-plated spire of Peter and Paul's Cathedral.

See breathtaking views such as the ingenious ensemble of the spit of the Basils Island, the peculiar pattern of the Summer Garden fence, the mysterious St. Michael's Castle, and the square of the seven bridges.
