Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

One of the more unusual and lovely things to observe in St Petersburg is couples getting married and groups of weddings guests taking photographs and celebrating the happy occasion.

During the summer months but also throughout the year you can see newly weds posing for photographs at popular city locations - One especially popular place is the walkway at Neva river known as Strelka

Other popular places where lots of wedding parties head for photos include the gardens near St Issacs and the monument of Peter the Great

It is not unusual to see bottles or bubbly being consumed and glasses being broken for good luck

When we were there we must have witnessed a dozen or so wedding parties so it is an interesting spectacle and quite different to the more formal traditions we have in the UK

Awesome view from any viewpoint to the river embankments, the places and the Peter and Paul Fortress. Great panoramic photo spot, daytime or nighttime.

This is a kind of a functional center of the city. It is in the transportation center, the two biggest branches of Neva river start here; there are many museums around, the home of the St. Petersburg University is also close.

Strelka is a tourist attraction on its own right (there are a few stories explaining its history and meaning), On top of that it offers a great view on SPb and Neva. IMHO, it is one of the must see places in SPb.

Nice panoramic view the Saint Petersburg on the Neva River. A very nice place to just walk around and take in the monument.

The park at the tip of Vasilievsky Island is a popular tourist attraction. It is bordered by two Rostral Columns and the Stock Exchange Building across the street. A walkway winds around it and down to the water with views of Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral and Fortress across the water. There are lots of vendors in the area but they don't bother you once you say you are not interested. I think an hour max is sufficient here.
