Water navigation started in Kronstadt. Residents and guests of St. Petersburg can take a trip on a two-deck motor ship from the pier "Island of Forts" around the famous forts of Kronstadt, accompanied by a guide. This was announced by the official travel portal Visit Petersburg.

According to the resource, classic excursions along rivers and canals from the berths "Sevkabel Port", "Palace Pier", "Senatskaya Pier", "Anichkov Bridge" and "Green Bridge" will also open soon.

"The Visit-Petersburg team will definitely inform you when you can go on boat trips aboard city motor ships and modern catamarans," the portal says.

Kronstadt, founded by Peter the Great, is a port city on Kotlin Island in St. Petersburg. The formation of the Russian navy is inextricably linked with this place. The historical center of the city is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

One of the most famous architectural monuments of Kronstadt is St. Nicholas Cathedral. Several historical buildings of the XVIII—XIX centuries have also been preserved here, including "provincial" houses, walls and barracks of the fortress, Gostiny Dvor. Kronstadt is known for its forts, which are an integral part of many sightseeing programs.

A few years ago, a new point of attraction appeared here - the "City of Forts". This is the urban cultural cluster of Kronstadt, dedicated to the history of the Navy. There is a park, an embankment, and a museum of naval glory.
