... Swan Lake at the Mikhailovsky Theatre, originally built in 1833, and the home of the State Academic Opera and Ballet Company. As a first time attendee at a ballet it was a memorable experience.

The mosque was founded in 1910 and patterned by the architect Nikolai Vasliyev. Unfortunately the mosque was closed due to a renovation so we could only view it from outside. We met the group who found a ...
