Recommend location for Proposing to my girlfriend

Hi All,

Me and my girlfriend are travelling to St. Petersburg in the last weekend of March and I am planning to make the "Big Proposal" to her while we are there.

Can you please recommend a romantic location for doing this? It can be a public location, a romantic boat-ride (private/public), a really nice restaurant with a great view on the city or.....

Thanks in advance!

You can rent a private boat, but March can be cold and rivers still iced over, so that's not a really good option. There are plenty of palaces and parks that could be an option, like Catherine's Summer Palace (I actually got married there, very romantic), or the old hotels like the Astoria and Europa, really depends on what you guys are into. Get a nice table, tell the staff beforehand, and you're all set to go, champagne or vodka or whatever else makes you loose...

For the great view I like Terrassa restaurant and the one on the roof of Kempinski Moika 22 hotel.

My vote's for Kempinski rooftop, very romantic and not as crowded as Terrassa.

Two locations at the Hermitage museum: at their special Diamond treasury rooms, in front of a mirror which was used only for preparation of princesses for weddings; at the Malachite room - where the last Russian empress Alexandra went for her church wedding with Nicholas II; also - if it fits: on Wednesday, at the Pavillion hall of the Hermitage, at 19.00 - when they switch on all the moving animals and birds of the Peacock clock of 18th century.
