... biblical scenes and people. It is the most fabulous place, and really like nothing I have ever seen. From there, we headed to the Russia Museum which is housed in a variety of buildings and palaces. We wandered through the sections of Old Russian Art, then 18th, early 19th and later 19th C and 20th C art. We also did a lap of the section on folk art, but Garth and David were not that impressed so we kept it short! Part of the exhibition is housed in ...
Currently sitting on a bus to Prague, with

TravelPod Member ReviewsPilau Hostel St. Petersburg
The staff were polite and very helpful, the room I was in was basic but comfortable, if a little hot and humid, however street noise could be quite intrusive, but the shower, bathroom and kitchen facilities were very good and well maintained.
