TripAdvisor Reviews Golden Triangle Hotel St. Petersburg
Travel Blogs from St. Petersburg
I can see why so many people love this city. Closer to European feel than Moscow. Beautiful canals, shops, parks and restaurants. Really the life of Russia! Went to the Hermitage (palace of Catherine the Great), went to the ballet (Swan Lake), and of course to the vodka museum, to enjoy ...

And that's how we do right now, being SO SICK with studying, ESTIEM, family&friends, random weekend partying and completely obsessed with OUR DREAM.
P.S. - I still can't believe we're doing it
