... with a Scott Joplin rag.

The palace is a magnificent residence, with huge rooms, beautiful inlaid wooden floors, elaborate gold leaf wall decorations, and frescoes on the ceilings.

Some of it is still being renovated, using the actual furnishings that were hidden from the Nazis in Siberia during World War Two.

The opulence is overwhelming and it's easy to understand why the common folk could be persuaded ...

... for a good public gathering. The streets are loaded with street performers, galleries, cafes, and pedestrian traffic, much like you’d imagine in Paris or Rome.

Peter and Paul’s Fortress was an interesting place and built with Amsterdam in mind, therefore the main cathedral where a lot of the Tsars were buried looks like a Dutch building rather than a traditional Russian Orthodox church.
