St Petersburg Cruise Port in Russia
  • Port of Saint Petersburg

    Vessels can dock at several different piers. Larger cruise ships tie up at the Marine (Sea) Facade complex. This facility located on the River Neva is capable of holding several large cruise liners at once. Despite the large number of port arrivals, however, movement through the terminal buildings always proceeds smoothly.

    Facilities at the passenger port include information desks, ATMs, shops and cafes. At the port and terminal shops you can buy typical Russian souvenirs such as iconic nesting dolls. You will also find good deals on porcelain, amber jewelry and icons. Marine Facade is located a few miles or kilometer north-west of the city centre.

    Smaller ships are able to sail up the Neva river and dock at either English Embankment or Lieutenant Schmidt Embankment, which are much closer to downtown St Petersburg Russia. Cruiselines operating from the port include Princess Cruises and MSC Cruises. Itineraries often include the port of Stockholm, Denmak’s capital city Copenhagen, upscale Warnemunde in Germany and Oslo in Norway.

  • The cultural capital of Russia

    St Petersburg was founded by Tsar Peter the Great in 1703, on reclaimed swampland alongside the River Neva. It became a glittering city of onion-shaped domes and sumptuous palaces.

    All visitors to St Petersburg must visit the Hermitage with its world-class collection of art and treasures. Your cruise ship itinerary may include a guided tour of this, taking you direct from the terminal and hopefully, avoiding some of the worst crowds at this very popular destination.

    St Petersburg remains the cultural capital of Russia and as you move around the city you will find yourself frequently stopping to admire the wonderful art and architecture all around you.

    Other highlights, such as the Museum of Russia and St Isaac’s Cathedral are all just a short walk from the Hermitage.

    St Isaac’s Cathedral is an awesome collection of mosaic murals and marble floors topped with a gold dome. Look out for special deals on trips that take you to some of the magnificent Romanov palaces that surround the city or on a romantic twilight cruise along the River Neva.
