Our final day in St Petersburg, was a morning excursion with more amazing architecture to see with a bonus of extra history lessons.
Much is told about Peter the Great where as a young man of about 20 he set out from Moscow. His goal was to bring Russia closer to the west. This could not be achieved in Moscow as it is landlocked. However, from a port town this was possible. This is how St Petersburg came to be. ...

Usually I pick up at least a few words but Mongolian was for me the hardest ever. They dont line up for anything, getting a train ticket is like a rugby scrum.
