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.

I tried imagining what the Russians under Stalin’s reign ...
... these cultures remain centered around feudal-type power structures of ruler and subject, where subjects trade obedience and taxes and service to an overlord or ruler for protection and a sense of identity. Unlike American colonists, their pathway to the present generally does not include teething on the concepts of the Renaissance, the Reformation, and the writings of great political thinkers of the ages.
What is happening in Ukraine ...
Our first morning in St Petersburg and we wandered to the nearest cafe down the road and had a very ordinary breakfast. Everything was cold and the coffee was..., best left unmentioned. We soon realised that pointing to the beautiful pictures on the menu will not mean that your meal will turn up looking anything Iike the picture. Or heated. The pictures appear to be more of a guideline than a guarantee.
Barely fuelled for the day ahead, we beamed ...

- Two hilltops. Truth to be told. I'd even add more, for changing places and horizons.
- Two eyes. Sometimes when I close my eyes to feel detached I suddenly start missing the World I can touch with my eyes.
