A boat trip under the drawbridges

11 April 2017

This year Dvorzovy Most (Palace Bridge) and Troitsky Most (Troitsky Bridge) will be raised a quarter of an hour earlier. This will allow the tourist boats to pass under the raised wings of the main bridges of Saint Petersburg.

According to the Deputy Director of  "Mostotrest" company Andrey Kochin, a year ago travel boats could not carry out river walks, while the bridges were opened. This year the city authorities decided to make an exception for tourists.

Excursion boats will have 15 minutes to let the tourists see this sights from an unusual angle.

It will be possible to see how the wings of the Palace and Troitsky bridges are straightened out at 1:10 and 1:20 am.
