Cape Leontief

This location provides views of the Malaya Nevka River, the Great Petrovsky Bridge, and the Lakhta Center. The cape takes its name from the Leontief cotton-printing factory that was based here. The Leontief merchants were known to be descendants of an Old Believer family which settled in St. Petersburg in the 1740s.

In 1906-1925, Wassily Leontief, a Nobel prize winner for Economics, spent his childhood and youth at Cape Leontief. He came from a very Old Believer merchant family line. The house where he resided is located at 43 Zhdanovskaya Street. Among the newly erected buildings at Cape Leontief is the Leontievsky Mys residential estate.

Reclaimed areas of Vasilyevsky Island

The Marine Façade project aimed at developing newly reclaimed territories in the Vasileostrovsky District has been in progress for over 10 years. As of this date, about half of the territory has been reclaimed, the Sea Port of St. Petersburg has been opened, a number of residential estates have been built, and a few more are under construction.

Today, the reclaimed areas of Vasilyevsky Island are referred to as the “sand emirates” and the “Petersburg desert” on social media. This is a good place to watch sunsets over the Gulf of Finland.

Kanonersky Island

Kanonersky Island is located between the Morskoy Canal and the Gulf of Finland. In summer, the island is a popular destination for Petersburgers: they meet sunsets there, take walks on the Island’s spit, and admire the Gulf and the Lakhta Center tower.

Morskaya (Marine) Embankment

One of the newest embankments of St. Petersburg got its name in 1972. It used to run along the shore of the Gulf of Finland from the square by Pribaltiyskaya Hotel to Nalichnaya Street.

Over recent years, the reclaimed territories and the Western High-Speed Diameter highway have made it impossible to reach the shore from the Embankment, leading to debate over what to rename it. That is why the street received a popular nickname — Pribaltiysky Avenue — which, it should be noted, has never been registered officially.

Intersection of WHSD and Yakhtenny Bridge

The Yakhtenny Bridge was opened in 2017 and is the longest (940 meters) and highest (16 meters) pedestrian bridge in St. Petersburg. The Bridge, which links the southern coast of the Primorsky District and the northern coast of Krestovsky Island, has a sidewalk, a bike lane, and two observation sites.

The Bridge spans over the Bolshaya Nevka River and runs below the Central Section of the Western High-Speed Diameter highway. Standing under these two bridges, one can see the Park of the 300th Anniversary of St. Petersburg, the domed roof of the Piterland water park, and the Lakhta Center.

Kirov Central Culture and Leisure Park

The Kirov Central Culture and Leisure Park is situated on Yelagin Island, which is the northernmost island in the Neva River estuary. Yelagin Palace and the city’s only Museum of Art Glass are located in the Park. The western part of the island is home to a mini zoo with reindeer, pygmy goats, a sheep, a fox, and a donkey.

The Park is a place to go roller skating, boating, and paddle boating in summer and kicksledding and ice skating in winter. Please note that it is forbidden to ride electrically driven vehicles in the Park. The western spit of Yelagin Island has an observation site with two lion sculptures, and offers a view of the Gulf of Finland.
