“Hard to class as a "landmark" but great stroll in the summer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2014

It's probably a stretch to call the Neva Embankments a landmark but one of the top things to do in the Summer, especially during the June White Nights, is to stroll around the embankments (with the best view probably coming around the Palace Bridge and the Strelka of Vasilievsky) and just enjoy the view!

“Great view of the Neva”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

We walked from the Aleksandrovskiy Gardens, Strelka, and the Summer Garden via the Neva Embankment. It was a fine Saturday and many people were fishing, taking a walk, enjoying the view and getting some sun. Views across the Neva were good with the sun shining on buildings and enhancing them. We made a mistake by stopping for a coffee at Koøe Xay3, an excuse for a coffee at top rubles.

“Nice to walk around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

I loved St Petersburg anyways, it's a fantastic city but this area is great too. We walked around the river banks and enjoyed the views of the city. You get lovely views in lots of different directions. it's amazing how wide the river is. We crossed the bridge near the Winter Palace, there is a small park the other side of the river and great views back towards the palace. We did a good bit of walking but it was well worth it seeing the city from the river embankments. Very nice!

“Go to see the lifting of the bridges”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Get a bottle of beer (or vodka if you are not faint hearted) and go to see the lifting of the bridges.
Recommendation: make sure you can make it back to the hotel, the bridges stay up for a few hours...

“It's surprising how big is a river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

It's a very impressive location where you can take a boat and how big is a river. From here you can follow the skyline of Saint Petersburg and it' really worth the journey.
