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.
