I LOVED the hotel.. but the restaurant was a rip-off with surly service...
The room was really nice, original, good hot water (important), free wi-fi that worked well (equally important). Careful about taking advice about restaurants from the staff - the one I was recommended locally was either closed or closed-down!
So, the restaurant on the other hand was a rip-off (I hadn't intended to eat there, as you can see above, but...), with surly service, ok food, and really really pricey.

... to the local train stations. Not St. Petersburg. Just to add to the adventure. So we get off the train and walk into the station area looking for something, anything that will lead us to the metro. Not a thing. Ok, let's ask a local policeman or someone in a uniform. "Hello, do you know where is metro." The response was a blank look. He turned to a friend nearby for help. "Metro" I said again. A glimmer of understanding was in his eyes. A stirring of hope in my heart. He then ...
It's 5pm and we are leaving the Peterhof and we are exhausted. Peterhof rivals Versailles so we spent the majority of our time on the grounds. We did go in to Catherine's pavilion which is on the Baltic. Quite a view! It's interesting that this building like Catherine's palace was almost totally destroyed by the Germans. 15k items of art were hidden by the Soviets but 10k were lost and never found. St. Petersburg is a city of 6 million today but in 8/1941 when the ...
... lot of animals in their art, both real and imaginary. The curving lines of the beasts are beautiful to behold, even when they're being torn apart by lions or wolves.
I then moved on to the Siberian exhibit rooms. Again the preservation was amazing. Hooray for permafrost! On display is a natural mummy of a chieftain. He was about 55 when he died and had amazingly good teeth, but obviously suffered from very bad arthritis of the knees. His body was covered in tattoos, ...

Vegetables, fresh, steamed or pickled
Dinner - Same as lunch with additional
meet dishes, sometimes chicken
Noodles, rice or several types of potatoes
At restaurants there was a wide variety of things that sounded great
Sometimes when you got them (as an American) you had to scratch your head.
Larry ordered a chicken sandwich . . . ??
... that do – don’t want to talk to you. Even in the one tourist information place we found the staff would do anything (play with their mobile phones, talk to the other staff, stare out the window) than make eye-contact with you. Same deal in a bar we went to – as soon as the barmaid realised that we didn’t speak Russian she served everyone else until other customers dried up. Trying to use some Russian words doesn’t help either. Everyone looks so ...
