Culture & History Architecture History & Heritage Tickets Audio Guides Boats & Yachts Fortresses

Enjoy an exclusive tour of the historic Peter and Paul Fortress after dark when no one else is there. Then hop on a cruise boat and journey down the Neva River, taking in views of St. Petersburg at night.


  • Go on an exclusive night tour of the Peter and Paul Fortress
  • Take a night cruise under the city's famous drawbridges
  • See the main city sights from the water after dark


Meet your guide at the Kronverkskiy Embankment and head across St. John’s Bridge to the sealed off Peter and Paul Fortress, normally closed to the public at night. Learn about the rich history of the building from its function as the original citadel of St. Petersburg in the 18th century to its use as a prison and execution ground by the Bolsheviks in the 1920s. After your visit to the fortress, head to the nearest quay to board your cruise down the Neva River. Get acquainted with the city after dark and marvel at the up-close views of its famous drawbridges.  For your convenience, the ship will make two stops at the end of cruise. Disembark at Lions Quay on Admiralty Embankment 2 or at the public quay on Kronverskiy Embankment. Catch a night bus or taxi to head to your next destination.
