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.

... movie, which was probably modelled on them. As a North American, I think it's very difficult to grasp this measure of opulence and how it was allowed to develop. Obviously most of the population had to either be ignorant of how the country's money was spent, or brainwashed to believe that there was no problem with the rulers having everything, while most of them had virtually nothing. Of course the belief that the more difficult this life ...
After a late breakfast and trip research, we found our way to Eclectica ticket booth to check if we could go on a 2pm tour of St Catherine's Palace (about 25km out of St Petes). There was space - but we had to find an ATM – the tourist board wielding woman motioned to a bank over the road – but once there the bank looked closed and we couldn't find an ATM anywhere. When we eventually found one further up and around the corner, ...
