Sea Port

Historically, Saint-Petersburg is the centre of the North-West Region of Russia. The region itself is a connection-link between Europe and Asia. It has two strategic outlets to the Baltic (and further to the northern part of the Atlantic Ocean), and Barentsevo Seas. Besides, the northern part of the Volgo-Baltiysky Waterway goes through its territory with outlet to the Caspian Sea.

The region includes five basins:

I. VOLGO-BALTIYSKY BASIN (5065km)

It is a main chain of the interior water system of the country in trade with Central and Northern Europe’s countries, and one of the most interesting tourist routes.
