“Impressive view”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Worth taking a look at from the "Strelka" (the arrow-shaped promontory across the Neva). Takes your breath away to imagine the wealth that was behind building all that. . .

“This IS St. Petersburg”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

When you look across the river and see the Winter Palace (aka the Hermitage), sparkling in the sun. You know you are in St. Petersburg. I had to keep pinching myself - when you have seen this in movies, tv shows, books all you life and you see it with your own eyes. Nothing is better.

“Lots of fun”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Neva bank is miles long, how can one write a review about all of it? Try scaling the ice in the winter, just be careful not to fall in!

“Very little acces to Neva river and canals”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

The river and canals are all girdled in granite with railings preventing access to the water except at a few boat landings I found on the Neva. Nothing special about the Neva embankment, just a built up area to allow the city to be built close to the river and canals. St. P. IS NOT "the Venice of the north".
