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.

It remained closed and under restoration for over 30 years and was finally re-opened in 1997 in all its dazzling former glory. The view of the church from Nevsky Prospekt is absolutely ...
... and stay here on board instead. Tonight was somewhat strange given that were so far north (60.08.92N and 024.55.18E) the sun didn’t really set until midnight. Today the sun rose 4:39 a.m. and the sun won’t hit the horizon until around 11:00 p.m. – it’ll be a long bright day. Next stop is Helsinki, Finland – can you say Absolute Ice House – they apparently let you keep the glasses – just good luck getting them home in one ...
... was assassinated in 1916. Who was Rasputin? Google him! It was a very interesting tour. The House contained a 180 seat auditorium. Could not get a picture of the outside as like many things in Russia, there is nothing to see that is pretty. This afternoon we visited a music school that Grand Circle supports through grants from the Grand Circle Foundation. It was k-12 school that only ...
... as I will have about a week after returning home to pack up my life and relocate it to Far North Queensland. Plus Christmas is somewhere in that week as well! Tomorrow, the Hermitage! I will give my boots one last workout tomorrow (I have no choice but to wear them in Irkutsk and don't want to spend every second of my time in Siberia thinking about having my feet ...
