... with all sorts of tour groups the staff were very efficient. On our way out to the palace and back to the hotel we got a better perspective of growth in the city. There are construction cranes in clusters often 5 to 6 at a time building new apartments and saw lots of examples of new ones that were recently built.

... how often I think I've seen it all then I'm blown away all over again! I walk into a memorial church (Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood) for Emporer Alexander II who was fatally wounded on the site where the church was built.

... Russia through my own eyes and not just with the stereotypes known for Russia and its citizens. I went there with some prejudices but also with an open mind and could get rid of some of the prejudices, while others stayed.

In some situations this study trip put me outside my comfort zone and I grew from experiences such as being lost in a subway system in a country where I can neither read nor speak the language.

... Interestingly, despite the church’s very obviously Russian aspect, its principle architect, A. Parland, was not even Russian by birth.

The church was closed for services in the 1930s, when the Bolsheviks went on an offensive against religion and destroyed churches all over the country. It remained closed and under restoration for over 30 years and was finally re-opened in 1997 in all its dazzling former glory. The view of the church from Nevsky Prospekt is absolutely ...
