We finally made it to St. Petersburg! We docked in the super early morning hours and by the time we woke up we were already here. There are 5 Viking ships that sail exclusively in Russia and we are the last one for the season so we had to moor off of 2 other ships. It's a very interesting experience.

From Tallinn we made an excursion to Saint Petersburg.
The night bus was a bit back breaking and having to spend two nights (one going there, one for returning) in a bus, being awake for quite some time because of the border bureaucracy, didn't make us fit.
Everything else was superb.
Saint Petersburg is huge. Probably a good thing we didn't go there by bike, although we would have managed. We arrived around 6 am, and the town still had to ...
