Walks in St. Petersburg - photos and impressions

Submitted by Visit Plus on Thu, 03/11/2021 - 17:02

Walking around St. Petersburg (Russia) always leaves me with some emotions and impressions. Photos help save them. On this page you can see photos of different places taken while walking around the city, which I would like to share with you.

Autumn, November, is not the best month to travel to St. Petersburg. Your trip can be ruined by cold, rain, wind, or even sleet. Sturdy shoes, an umbrella, a raincoat and warm clothes will save you. (At the same time, September can be quite pleasant.)

St. Petersburg is full of art! You just need to look around carefully. This is not art, you might say (in the photo below). I really do not know. But I'm sure it was done by a man with a sense of humor and good taste, and a master of his craft. And whether it is art or not, let everyone decide for himself. (Do you have a sense of humor?)

The channels are frozen. The boat was frozen into the ice. In April, ships will start sailing on the Neva. Pleasure boats will carry tourists. We are waiting for spring.

Winter in St. Petersburg is not only white snow and popular attractions. To avoid slippery conditions, sidewalks and streets are often sprinkled with salt.

Slush in St. Petersburg

Winter in St. Petersburg is not only white snow, but also disgusting, salty, dirty St. Petersburg slush. It stains clothes and eats away shoes at dogs' and paws. Take care of your shoes.

In winter, St. Petersburg is also very beautiful. Snow, frozen Neva, blue sky.

It was a real winter in 2020-2021. Snowdrifts create a wintry atmosphere.

The eastern end of Vasilievsky Island is, in my opinion, the most beautiful place in St. Petersburg. From here you can see a view of the Neva River, the Peter and Paul Fortress, and the Winter Palace.

Just don't throw garbage on the embankment. There is a litter bin somewhere nearby.
