Splendiferous St Petersburg

A travel blog entry by anni.porter


... and off we went. The bus pulled up briefly so we could get some pics of the outside of the Hermitage (Winter Palace), and then the Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood before taking us to the canals to board our cruise of the canals and rivers. It was the most beautiful day with glorious sunshine and so the cruise was spectacular – especially since apparently they’d had rain for the previous week! We were all able to sit on deck on the boat ...
