Private tour around rivers and canals with the visits to the most beautiful cathedrals


Dear tourists!
Maybe you know that Saint-Petersburg is always referred to as Northern Venice because it has lots of picturesque rivers and canals. That is why it is especially beautiful from a boat. During this sightseeing tour by boat you will see all the highlights of Saint-Petersburg, all the main places of interest. For your comfort, I will rent a private modern boat where we can also drink a bottle of champagne and take some snacks with us.
After the romantic boat ride we will visit the churches and cathedrals.
St Isaacs cathedral is famous for it's huge dome, sculptures, mosaics and the colonnades. We can also climb up the colonnade upstairs to admire the view to the city from the top.
The Church on the Spilled Blood is famous because it has 7000 m2 of mosaic icons inside, besides, it was constructed on the death place of Russian Tsar - Alexander II.
Kazan Cathedral is the main Orthodox Cathedral of St-Petersburg and is famous being the memorial to the War of 1812. During the tour we will see them all!
