Hunt for the White Whale

A travel blog entry by timthelibrarian


... and he confirmed it. Thwarted once again!! I couldn't believe it. All I could do was laugh.

I didn't want to waste any more time so made my way north across the Neva to see Peter the Great's Cabin. Thank god this was open! I breathed a sigh of relief, paid my admission fee and went inside. This small 3 room cabin was Peter's first residence in his new city. Built in only 3 days, Peter only lived in it for few weeks before his war ...

Today we first went to the Church on Spilled Blood, which is built on the place where Alexander II was assassinated. It’s a very interesting ...

Days 20 to 22: St Petersburg

A travel blog entry by mikensoph

However we did find a crazy Soviet themed restaurant complete with automated farm animal noises blaring out into the street to attract punters.
