A city built over 42 islands, St. Petersburg is surrounded by water and interlaced with a complex web of rivers, canals and channels that seem to bind the city together, while also marking the borders of its different districts and neighborhoods. St. Petersburg's low-rise classical architecture means that great vistas of the city are often visible from the water, and therefore an essential part of any exploration of the city is to get out in a boat and cruise the rivers and canals of St. Petersburg.
About 500 bridges with iron lacework of railing span the city's rivers and canals. One of the most distinctive features of the city is the nightly opening of the major spans on the Neva to allow vessels to enter or exit the Volga-Baltic waterway.
