I am at TGI Fridays at St Petersburg airport (this to start with says something about the new Russia), so this is a good chance to tell you about my adventures over two and a half weeks in St Petersburg and surroundings. We stayed in the Saint-Petersburg Hotel which was inexpensive, large, comfortable and convenient for the Metro. Also a brisk 40 …
Ah yes The neighbour to the EAST good old Russia It amazes me to think that only 20 years ago it would have been nearly impossible for me to get a visa to Russia, now it IS possible, but still somewhat difficult. St Petersburg is only about a 3 ½ hour drive away from Helsinki (by bus) but with boarder customs youd better set aside a whole day. It …
So here we are on the move again and this time by sea on the St Peters Line Ferry from Helsinki to St Petersburg. 14 hours through the night through the Baltic Sea. Little did we realise when we booked this element of our trip just how much fun this would be. We were welcomed on board the boat by someone in the rattiest looking Captain Seagull costume and had our photo taken whilst we were bent over double laughing at the costume, needless to say we did not buy the ...
... I got up and walked off, annoyed again. I walked to St Issac's church but had become so resentful of this tourist trap culture that I couldn't be bothered paying them money, so I just photographed the huge church from the park, and continued on.
One thing I did notice as I walked past the Admiralty building, was the number of wedding parties that were showing up to take photos next to famous landmarks. I must have seen about 50 couples do this throughout the ...
... we were out so late. At 1:30am St Petersburg is essentially cut in two as all of the bridges are raised to allow large cargo and passenger ships enter the city. These stay open until approximately 4am so if you are trapped on the wrong side of the city it is a long drive around. While the cruise and views were great, we didn’t really feel that we needed to see the bridges opening. If there were accompanying fireworks or a show featuring monkeys ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsSaint-Petersburg Hotel St. Petersburg
Being on the other side of the river from the historic district made for expensive cab rides or a bit of a walk to their extensive metro, but the view was worth it!
The room was exceptional for the price paid and the term "breakfast included" left visions of rolls and coffee. In reality it was a feast! Eggs and sausages fixed multiple ways, fruit, bread, vegetables and salads. In Russia it seemed every breakfast includes tomatoes and cucumbers. Pastries, merinegues, pancakes with fruits or syrups and of course coffee tea and fruit juices, all in a dinning room with the fabulous view of the historic St Petersburg.
