Boat trips OFFLINE guide in St. Petersburg Creator – Webitecs

Boat rides and tours around rivers and canals is definitely “must be done” activity! Saint-Petersburg is the champion European city for bridges and second most for canals and islands.

bridges

St. Petersburg drawbridges timetable Creator – la-droid

Visiting St. Petersburg in the summer season from May until November, please, remember that every night, bridges across the Neva river are closed for the traffic the same as walking. The city rises bridges to give way to the bigger ships to pass from the Gulf of Finland to the Ladoga Lake by the Neva river. This drawbridges night show attracts many onlookers but brings also difficulties to move around the city center, especially to/from Vasilevsky island.

Every drawbridge has it’s own time period when it is closed, so if you know and follow that timetable, it will be much easier to plan your taxi trip or a walking tour at night!

The mobile application is very easy to use! It gives you the list of drawbridges and the time when they are closed. Press and hold the name of any drawbridge in the list and you will see the map where all bridges are located!

The application is available on the iTunes and the Google Play store


offline

Promt OFFLINE audio translator and dictionary Creator – PROMT

Russian is very different from other languages as it has the Cyrillic structure and sometimes even reading of simple names or official notices is a big problem for foreign guests.

Even if St. Petersburg is much more European city than any other place in Russia, unfortunately, local people are still not very good or too shy in foreign languages, even in English. Locals are very friendly and if you ask something in foreign language, they always try to help even if they do not understand the meaning of your question. You can make it much easier just if you know some words or phrases in Russian!

For your more comfortable visit and easier communication we recommend to have on your mobile device very functional offline translator, which can be available at any time and any place, as you never know when and where you really need it! Pronunciation is also very important and it is better if you have audio function in your translator.

One of such reliable and most popular translators and dictionaries is PROMT. With its help you can translate and hear whole sentences, phrases and words in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Russian!

The application is available on the iTunes and the Google Play store
