Let’s go for a ride
As you approach Fontanka River, don’t rush to cross it. First pause to admire the bronze horse tamers on Anichkov Bridge, and the view of the canal from here makes a great backdrop for a photograph. Then take one of the numerous boat tours to explore the rivers and canals. You will see many on offer as you approach the Fontanka River, with excursions lasting from 30 minutes to two hours. Guides will tell you the history of every point of interest that you pass.
