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.

After the war of 1812 (during which Napoleon was defeated) the church became a monument to Russian victory. Captured enemy ...

Even though we might have been twenty-fifth line it must of took us at least 45 minutes or so to edge our way up to the big red line on the floor. Who knew when the guys at the other end of the line actually got to the line as each person had ...
... have heard us back at the first checkpoint.
It seemed to take forever but we were through in just over 2 hours, quite unusual apparently.
We then pulled over for a picnic lunch........on the grass strip in front of a service station no less!
But we were given vodka shots to celebrate..
Then off to St Peterburg we head, must admit I slept most of the way after that.
First glimpse in the fringe area, fairly ...
... own. it was pretty cheap. St Pete is not the place to be in the winter. it gets down to 30 below with all rivers and canals freezing over. We traveled by bus to downtown St Pete again to visit the largest private palace in St Pete. It was originally owned by the 5th richest family in Russia. Today it is owned by a teachers club. However actual ownership is in dispute. This was the place ...
