ECNS 2019 participants are lucky to be in St. Petersburg during summertime. It is the best time take a boat trip around the city’s rivers and numerous canals. It is known that St. Petersburg is called the Northern Venice. A city built over 42 islands, St. Petersburg is surrounded by water and interlaced with a complex web of rivers, canals and channels that seem to bind the city together, while also marking the borders of its different districts and neighborhoods.
St. Petersburg's low-rise classical architecture means that great vistas of the city are often visible from the water, and therefore an essential part of any exploration of the city is to get out in a boat and cruise the rivers and canals of St. Petersburg.
You will be shown around the town from the water and the guide will tell you about the history and architecture details of the places you will pass.
