The port first became active in 1703, almost at the same time as the founding of St. Petersburg. Maritime vessels entered the port along natural waterways and unloaded at Vasilev Island; larger ships unloaded at Kotlin Island. With the commencement of regular operations at the St. Petersburg port, the city of St. Petersburg was transformed into the chief center of Russia’s foreign trade.
