Saint-Petersburg as a Seaport...

March 2009


Saint Petersburg is often called Venice of the North. There are three large cargo sea ports: Bolshoi Port Saint Petersburg, Kronshtadt and Lomonosov. International cruise liners have been served at the passenger port in Morskoy Vokzal on the south-west of Vasilievsky Island. In 2008 the first two berths were opened at the New Passenger Port on the west of the island. The marine passenger terminal is one central complex including frontier, migratory and custom services, hotel and business center. It is located on the square of Morskoy Vokzal. Ships from all over the world as well as liners from Holland and Sweden arrive and leave from here.
The new port is part of the city\'s \"Marine Facade\" development project and is due to have seven berths in operation by 2010. If St. Petersburg is Russia’s window on Europe, Marine Façade will be Europe’s gangplank to Russia.

With a quay of 253 meters the Lieutenant Schmidt Embankment (also referred to as The English Embankment) in the city center is an ideal and convenient terminal for tourists visiting Saint Petersburg by sea.  Its central location is at walking distance from major tourist sites, such as the Hermitage Museum, St. Isaac’s Cathedral and Vasilievsky Island Spit the Nevsky Prospekt and the entire downtown area.

The Cargo Port of St. Petersburg

This is the main harbor where all the biggest cruise ships dock (Princess Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean). It is totally built for the purpose of handling cargo and freight; however, it is also used for the cruise ships and passengers because there are no other docks deep or large enough. The area is located in the western part of St. Petersburg and is a highly secured area. In fact this strip of the port is double-triple guarded by the port\'s own guards, and by the Immigration officers. Special permission for bus & guides entrance is required.

According to the Russian law regarding the non-visa cruise passengers the proper documentation is: 1) A valid passport, 2) A photo copy of your passport 3) A proof of your participation in an escorted tour program arranged by a licensed and authorized operator. Items # 1-2 are to be provided by you, and item # 3 is taken care of by Leader Team. This personalized excursion ticket, comparable to those of your cruise ship, will be forwarded to you electronically or by mail. Just for your information there are other points as well, which do not concern you, for instance that the maximum stay of the ship cannot exceed 72 hours

In case if you wish to enjoy the city by your own you need a Russian visa.

Leader Team will send you the required invitation.

Russian Tourist Visa

A visa to the Russian Federation is a document, permitting stay in Russia for 15 days. This type of visa is issued to tourists who have booked accommodation in Russia for non-business purposes. When you know exactly where and how long you will be staying without diverting from your planned itinerary, a tourist visa is the best option. For a tourist visa to Russia, you must have confirmed accommodations or transit information for every night of your stay in the country. A visa lists entry/exit dates, your personal information, passport details, and has two photos stapled to it. Please note that your Russian visa is an exit permit just like it\'s an entry permit: if you lose it or stay over your announced departure date, leaving the country could be more troublesome than entering it.
Do also bear in mind that visitors must carry their ID card at all times whilst in Russia.  However, a photocopy of your passport and visa will do. An Immigrant Card will be issued on arrival. All visitors staying for longer than three days must register their Immigrant Cards with their hotel or sponsor. Technically anyone applying for a tourist visa needs to have pre-arranged accommodation, but hostels or hotels can often provide an invitation as long as the first night is spent there. Exit permits are required on departure. These are usually issued with the visa, or can be obtained at hotels not less than two days before departure. Passports must be valid for the period of intended stay.

The River Cruises

The River cruises are always domestic Russian cruises and never international cruises. Most of these cruises sail between Moscow and St. Petersburg and are making several roundtrip voyages during the season. They all dock in the River Cruise Terminal along the River Neva. For passengers a Russian tourist visa is obligatory.

For our guests Leader Team proposes a wide variety of excursions & excellent restaurants for fine dining:
