The article deals with the problem of improving the life of pedestrians in the specific conditions of Saint-Petersburg. The authors emphasize the problem aggravation resulting from the increasing automobilization of the city. Some options for improving the pedestrian infrastructure for two different situations, namely, for streets and for embankments, are proposed. The system of pedestrian communications through double-exit courtyards typical for the center of the city, is considered as a model of pedestrian paths separated from the streets congested by transport. It is pointed out that the existing transit motor traffic along the embankments does not allow a proper use of the artistic potential of the rivers and canals. The possibilities of organizing pedestrian paths along the embankments of the Neva River at the level of the waterside edge are shown.
