This is a tight and winding canal running through the very heart of St. Petersburg, between and for most of its length parallel to the Fontanka and Moyka Rivers.
The canal's bank is a five kilometers long and winding path that gives a broad panorama view of St. Petersburg architecture crossing centuries and styles from luxurious palaces and cathedrals to simple tenements of the beginning from the 20th century.
The canal is also famous as the site where anarchist revolutionaries murdered Russian Emperor Alexander II, surely one of the most high-profile terrorist attacks of the 19th century.
Once you are walking over it's bridges you'll catch a glimpse of the Church of Savior on the Spilled Blood and won't be able to resist breaking into a smile.
