Palaces of the Romanovs, Faberge Eggs and Sable!

... find any. We ended sharing a sandwich at a cafe just before it closed and I bought lovely Cath some lovely malachite earrings as a remembrance of St Petersburg, the Hermitage and Russia.

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 ...
