In summer the city presents a particularly magnificent sight from the water. A trip by ship is simply a dream. My personal favourite is the route over the Griboyedov and Kryukov canals to Moyka River. These routes take you under the impressive Lviny, Bankovsky, and Pochtamtsky bridges. On this route you can admire the sights like Nikolsky Cathedral and New Holland Island. These attractions lie far from the tourist centre, and are otherwise difficult to reach on a short city trip. The tour starts at the Griboyedov Canal. Here you can also buy the tickets. A trip takes a good two hours. The best time for this is between May and September.
