... the ice in winter. We are lead to believe that St Petersburg is also known as the Venice of the north as it is built over approx. 4 islands. The Fortress sits on Hare Island, the name comes from Peter finding many Hares on the island when he began to build the Fortress.

We saw many sights in the Fortress, such as a recent monument of Peter the Great, where the locals were very disappointed by this as his head and hands were out of proportion. His ...
