Saint-Petersburg Sea Port

Saint Petersburg – The Capital of Sea Cruises


Saint Petersburg was created as a port city. The city makes a brilliant ensemble with the delta of the river Neva that flows into the Baltic Sea. Just as it was centuries ago, nowadays St. Petersburg port plays an important role on the Baltic Sea.

Saint Petersburg has always drawn much attention. However, in the past the city lacks the infrastructure necessary to receive cruise ships. That is why the construction of a specialized passenger port turned into one of the most important projects and in 2010 the new passenger port was constructed on the Basil Island.
