Walk along the strelka
Vasilievsky Island‘s strelka is the easternmost tip of the island which juts out into the Neva River and is lined by some of St Petersburg‘s oldest and most important buildings. The embankment is bordered by fascinating museums, historic colleges, and fine examples of 18th century architecture. Gazing out over the Neva from this idyllic spot offers panoramic views of the Admiralty, Winter Palace, and St Isaac’s – the city’s most striking landmarks. Enjoy the beauty of St Petersburg from the tranquillity and charm of Vasilievsky Island. Or alternatively: soak up the breathtaking views while enjoying a delicious dinner or cocktail at restaurant Bellini, with its enormous windows and fabulous balcony.
