This is a great vantage point to get a prospective of the city. It is a city made up of islands connected by some terrifically designed small bridges, a number of which are themselves an artistic dream. Most days you get a great view of the expanse of water with the buildings in the background, a great spot for pictures.... More

This place is a MUST once you are in Saint Petersburg. Unique place that has a great atmosphere and view. Best time to visit it is during White Nights time which is from late May to Early July. Awesome thing is that you dont have to go directly to the attraction site to take great pictures. You can go to... More

This place is one of the first buildings, developed by the Peter the Great. You will have a great view of the Palace, Neva River and the 3 bridges.

We walked here on way back to city centre from Peter & Paul Fortress. Nice views in several directions and garden plus a relaxing place. Free to roam and look.

Unlike other reviewed "attractions" such as Palace Square and Neva Embankments, the Strelka truly is a sight to behold as it has the beautiful "rostr" columns on it and if you were to pick one viewing point of the city, this would be it!

Places on the island are beind intensly refurbished and as they attract more tourists, the memorial itself somehow becomes more prominent.

I had the opportunity to walk to work one of my earlier times in the city and the walk. Took me to this area, now it's one of my favorite places to visit. Nice views of the city and the area whether looking back to the winter palace or over to the fortress. One will not be disappointed with a... More

This is one of the best spots for seeing the embankment. Try it at night for great photos as many buildings are lit up.
