A hydrofoil took us to Peterhof, the summer palace of Peter. He disliked palaces, though, and lived in a small house on the property.

With a light hangover we woke up, having breakfast, preparing etc. etc. we walked to the Nevsky Prospekt. The main item on today's program was visiting the Hermitage. Best way to get there is taking the bus. Note that there are many pickpockets active at St. Petersburg. We experienced that they ...
