I had written out the name and address of the hotel in Cyrillic and also the words for, "how much?" He replied in English a thousand. So much for my …

There is a definite contrast between the country's political capital and its cultural one. St. Petersburg, a planned city constructed under the guidance of Peter the Great, is modeled after European architecture and was designed to be Russia's gateway to the West. It is a very nice gate. St. Petersburg, though looking like a ...

... all I can say! Or am I? There is tough competition as there is average 10 girls for 8 men, and out of 8 men one will be bald, another will be with a beer belly and bad teeth.

On most days there are actors walking around in period costume outside the church. Roisin and I kept our distance from these. Not because me might get could up in a re-enactment of the assassination but from an experience outside the coliseum in Rome where similar actors were dressed up as Roman Centurions.

Today was probably the day I was looking forward to the most: our first day in Russia. We arrived in St. Petersburg and got on a bus to tour the area. We drove past several notable landmarks and buildings such as the Triumphal Arch commemorating the Russian victory over Napoleon, and it was easy to notice the Soviet-era architecture which is common throughout the city. We drove out of St. ...

    Situated just off Nevsky Pr the principal street, and pretty much in walking distance from most sights, if not a subway entrance is nearby. Rooms are adequate and clean. Hotel is away from noisy vehicles in a rear area. Staff are helpful and good breakfast.
