Finally...the Hermitage

... nor particularly acute at appreciating, art and artists throughout history, it was an incredibly emotional and profoundly touching experience to be able to see, from just inches away, original works by Leonardo Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Degas, Cezanne and any of dozens of masters who’s works I had never seen other than in textbook pictures. It was like the feeling I got a few years back, standing in the forum of Rome knowing that Julius Caesar ...

... English had us thinking he was a foreigner to Russia, but not so - a true born Russian through and through.  As we all know, Steve, by his own admission is the 3rd best tour guide in Sydney and Peter was as good Steve, in fact, better.  Mandy did qualify this by pointing out that Steve is funnier, but Peter had far more cultural information and appreciation, but then he lives in a city that has culture by the bucketload.

But, St. Petersburg - Venice of the North, although we felt it was more similar to Amsterdam. There are 62 rivers and canals around the city, the Neva being largest. Within these waterways, there are 42 Islands and I've forgotten how many bridges, mostly drawbridges, and each one unique in ...

2nd big day out in St Petersburg

... was had in l'Orangerie of the palace washed down with more champagne and vodka before walking through the gardens (following the No. 12 paddle!!) back to the bus.
The next stop was to be highlight of our tour - the Hermitage Museum. What a disappointment - not for what it contained but for the limited time we had here, the hundreds and hundreds of people inside and the controlled nature of the tour. You ...
