      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. Don't be put off by the entrance hall to the apartments when you are buzzed into the building, once you get to the apartment upstairs it does get a lot better!

      ... Adam (Brits), Nick & Helen (Brits), Paul & Catherine (Welsh), Rowan & Maria (Aussie & Spanish), Ollie & Jen (Brit & Swede). We were all a bit too tired & jet lagged to go out & we have to be up early to get in line for the hermitage, so we headed back to the hostel for about 11.30pm. Day 3: Today has been another long one, not everyone was up at the same time, so a small group of us left a bit earlier & managed to get into ...

      The Hermitage

      We have 2 day tickets, so can break it up a little.

      By accident we wandered in via a quieter entrance, the reason it was quieter was that it lead to a more obscure part of the displays - the Siberian archelogical section. Not an area we'd have sought out, but was extremely interesting, not least because we were going to be travelling thru there next week. It was stunning how sophisticated their culture was in the periods the displays ...

      ... to as everything but a hare. After a lap of the fortress interior Anton left me to attend his yacht sailing club. With his beard and height he looks all the bit a sailor. And though he is by nature a man of few words he has an ancient wisdom about him. I continued exploring the fortress alone. I then took the 27 rouble (AUD$0.82) per ride Metro via two changes to Lenin Square, where I'd arrived on Wednesday night but never really ...

      ... once I found how to make the shower work, a little tricky for an old lady.

      We noticed 2 Trafalgar tours are also staying here plus bus loads of Japanese and Taiwanese tourists the first Asians we have seen on our journey, I think the attraction of Russia brings many people to this area and so this very large hotel can cater for multiple tours at any one time.

Next to it is a long gallery called the 1812 War Gallery featuring portraits of the generals who were heroes of the War of 1812 and subsequent campaigns. At one end is a huge portrait of Alexander I. Along the sides are many head and shoulder portraits as well as some full portraits of important generals. It is interesting ...
