Thank you Ghardaia for your post.

I also never recommend to drink tap water in Saint Petersburg as well as in the whole Russia.

Ghardaia in Petersburg water
by: Anonymous

The problem with the tap water in Petersburg is the parasite Ghardaia. It is easy to get and very difficult to overcome. Don't risk it!

Hi John,

Thank you for stopping by!

Here's Davide's answering.

Well, if you refer to tap water, yes! Is not safe to drink it as it isn't everywhere else in the world, apart from some few exceptions, Bottles water will be definitely your best choice, even for washing your teeth.
