As a final stop, our boat with it's very non-Russian, Russian crew (ie smiling & friendly) pulled into port and effectively became a floating hotel for the four days we were going to be in St Petersburg (formerly Leningrad). I don't know if St Petes is the most heavily renovated city in world history but it has to be close.

... given nights are very short here. Ivan decided to explore dark alley's, and luckily didn't get jumped. It was about 5 am when we finally crawled into our beds. Sunday was, as expected, a late start. We went back to the Hermitage to cover what we missed the day before. Next we went to see "the bronze Horseman", a statue of Peter the Great. For such a prominent statue you would think that there would be lots of replica little statues. Vlad ...

... Peter the Jackass or Peter the Traitor.

So off he goes and looks at the map of Mother Russia and thought that because of the current location of St-Petersburg close to the Baltic Sea and directly on the river Neva, it would be a great place to build a capital city since it would allow easier trade with other European nations. Only problem is that it was all marshland. So they had to drain the marshes, squeeze the water out of the land and fill it in and ...
