This St Petersburg Canal walk will take you from Palace Square (the Hermitage) to St Petersburg’s less visited side. You will walk along Aleksandrovsky Sad, the Admiralty Embankment, Nikolsky Sad, past Fontanka River and finally Polsky Sad. This is a slightly more unusual route but it will give you a taste of quieter streets in St Petersburg. Some of the largest private palaces used to be in this area as well, so don’t miss it off your itinerary.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this
    blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very
    hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal.

    I must say you have done a excellent job with this. Additionally,
    the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox.
    Outstanding Blog!
