In Peter the Great’s ‘Hiking journal’ there is a writing dated in 1705: ‘On September 13th our schnau ’Moonker’ went to St. Petersburg; at 4 PM we docked in Peterhof; in the evening we arrived in St. Petersburg’. 300 years ago a voyage from Peterhof to the city seemed unbelievably long and tiring, but still it was the fastest way to come here. Surprisingly, nothing has changed so far. A boat trip still remains the fastest and the most comfortable way for most visitors. But today it takes only 35 minutes on board a river boat ‘Meteor’.
