Palace Embankment, St. Petersburg, Russia
A piece of the Digital Land on the main and the most respectable embankment of the city. Along it there are the world famous palaces of St. Petersburg, including the Hermitage – the official royal residence and today one of the world's leading museums. It is a major tourist attraction for those who want to admire the classical panoramic view of St. Petersburg: the affluent delta of the Neva River, the majestic Spit of Vasilyevsky Island, and the formidable walls of Peter and Paul Fortress. This is the best place for romantic walks. Granite quays descend directly to the river, to numerous piers, from which boats take tourists for incredible excursions along rivers and canals of Northern Venice. And of course, this is the most convenient place to watch the most stunning spectacle of St. Petersburg – the raising of bridges. From the Palace Embankment you can see three bridges at once – Troitsky, Dvortsovy and Birzhevoy.
Additional information: St. Petersburg is the third largest city in Europe, with more than 5 million inhabitants. And every year it is visited by more than 7 million tourists from all over the world.
Annually, over 4 million people come to see the Hermitage.
Each year during the “Crimson Sails” – the main spring show on the Neva River – about one million people gather on the Palace Embankment.
