Pleasant buildings line the Moyka River embankments and a boat trip is the most pleasant a way to see it. Palaces from the 1700's line the banks. Our guide told us that in the 1800's the water quality was deemed so poor and muddy that...More

Walking up and Down the embankment during my 3 month stay in St. petersburg was like a trip back in time. This really is the "old world". The Russians display so much heritage and style in the details of their buildings.
