Great views, nice park

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.

It's really romantic to walk along during the white nights in August, taking in the view and gardens along the way. There are boat trips you can take, which are very good too.

The New Stock Exchange by Thomas de Thomon, which replaced Quarenghi's project that was never finished, is presently closed and under renovation. The Naval Museum has been reinstalled in fine new quarters near the New Holland triangle on the Admiralty side. Yet even in its present shabbiness, the Stock Exchange is key to understanding the early C19 shift in attitudes... More

You'll have a glorious view of Petropavlovskaya (Peter and Paul) Fortress and the Winter Palace and if you are here in the summer, chances are, you'll witness a bride and groom strolling past as it's traditional in Russia to take as many photos around historical landmarks as possible on your wedding day.
