Running from Estonia in the south to Finland in the north, it occupies the easternmost reaches of the Baltic in the Gulf of Finland. There is a secondary Russian coastline, sandwiched between Poland and Lithuania. While Kaliningrad has its attractions, those in search of a more arresting and three-dimensional Russian superyacht charter experience should concentrate instead on the glorious city of St Petersburg.

Having spent centuries vying with Moscow for prominence as the imperial capital of Russia, the dramatic port city of St Petersburg is the natural choice for a Russian yacht charter. With 64 rivers, 48 canals and 92 nautical miles of coastline, it is plainly a place with yachting at its heart. It is the opulence, the confidence and the cultural importance of St Petersburg that makes it such an iconic world destination. A short distance west, the Estonian capital and Tallinn. For an extra dimension, you can also head further east, via the Neva River toward Russia’s Lake Ladoga, the largest freshwater lake in Europe.
