Following the working programme, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping took a walk around the Northern capital. They strolled down the city centre, enjoyed the main sights from a boat and made an unplanned stop at the Cruiser Aurora.
The President of Russia and the President of the People's Republic of China boarded and toured the cruiser briefly. After that, the leaders visited the State Hermitage Museum, in particular, the Italian Renaissance exhibits, and continued their informal conversation.
