St. Petersburg, Russia: Neva River cruise

The summers aren't too long in St. Petersburg, so the people make sure to enjoy them. One way to take advantage of that idea is to hop in a boat and cruise the Neva River. It's the main waterway in the Russian city, and connects to the various canals around town. The cruises supply an interesting viewpoint for seeing the city.

In this case, here's what the St. Isaac's Cathedral looks like from the river. It used to be the biggest cathedral in Russia, and it still has a fascinating interior.

You can tour the place, which is mostly used as a museum now. Services are only held inside on special occasions.

As for the rest of the trip, try this video for a taste:
