A city of palaces and museums, broad avenues and winding canals, St. Petersburg's short history has endowed the city with a wealth of architectural and artistic treasures. Alongside world-famous attractions such as the Hermitage, St. Isaac's Cathedral and the Mariinsky Theatre, the city has scores of lesser known but equally fascinating sights that reveal both the pomp and extravagance of St. Petersburg's political and Imperial past, and also the mysterious, tragic genius that has touched so many of the city's great artists and writers. Still considered Russia's cultural capital, St. Petersburg reflects the country's extraordinary fate like no other city, and its uniquely rich atmosphere exerts a powerful grip on even the most jaded traveler.

Dear participants of EMC Compo 2017!
We invite you to main social event of the conference – the boat trip along the rivers and canals of St. Petersburg.
A city built over 42 islands, St. Petersburg is surrounded by water and interlaced with a complex web of rivers that seem to bind the city together, while also marking the borders of its different districts and neighborhoods. St. Petersburg's low-rise classical architecture means that great vistas of the city are often visible from the water.
You can enjoy beautiful views of St. Petersburg and Gulf of Finland during 3 hours while travelling on motor ship. All guests will be provided by alcoholic drinks and snacks on the board.
