Port of St.-Petersburg

Russia

Saint Petersburg is on the delta of the Neva River, at the eastern end of the Gulf of Finland. Most of the city is built on both banks of the Neva and on islands in the river. Canals and natural waterways connect the navigable Neva with the Caspian and White seas and also with the Dnepr and Volga rivers, making Saint Petersburg the port of exit for much of the Caspian, Ural, and Volga areas. A deepwater channel in the Neva River makes the port accessible through the Gulf of Finland to the largest oceangoing ships. Although the harbor is frozen from November to April, icebreakers keep the channel open except during the severest winter period.
