Getting Around St Petersburg By Boat


Though it sounds romantic, boat travel in St. Petersburg is not a practical method of transportation. Sightseeing tours are somewhere, better to stick with the metro or other methods. There are, however, regular services to the Petrodvorets estate-museum on the Gulf of Finland.


BRIDGES


There are many bridges in St.Petersburg and the largest ones across Neva River, most other bridges are drawn all night long, from around 1:45 am till 5:15 am. River transport remains important and in summer it's possible to travel long distances across Russia on passenger boats. The main passenger services ply between Moscow and St Petersburg, and between Moscow and various points on the Volga and Don, including Yaroslavl, Nizhny Novgorod, Volgograd, Astrakhan and Rostov-on-Don.

The bridges are not a problem in the wintertime, when the river is frozen and impassable to boats, making raising the bridges unnecessary. However, there are a few tales to the contrary. Schedules also may change during the White Nights season around midsummer. Some times (a.m.) are:

  • Volodarskiy → 2:00 - 3:45 and 4:15 - 5:45
  • Alexandra Nevskogo → 1:30 – 5:05
  • Liteiny → 1:50 - 4:40
  • Troitskiy → 1.50 - 4.50
  • Dvortsovy → 1:35 - 2:55 and 3:15 - 4:50
  • Leytenanta Shmidta → 1:40 - 4:55
  • Birzhevoy → 2:10 - 4:50
  • Tuchkov → 2:10 - 3:05 and 3:35 - 4:45
  • Sampsoniyevskiy → 2:10 - 2:45 and 3:20 - 4:25
  • Grenaderskiy → 2:45 - 3:45 and 4:20 - 4:50
  • Kantemirovskiy → 2:45 - 3:45 and 4:20 – 4:50
