Travel Blogs from St. Petersburg

The jewel of Russia!

A travel blog entry by tom_and_emma


... buildings right along the length of the street. It took us around 5 hours to walk through (without really stopping that often) one floor of the three floor complex. The architecture is mind-blowing (you will see I put about 15 pictures up just of the Hermitage rooms) and the art work equally so. This is definitely a must-see in St Petersburg - but trust the guidebook and plan to do a section of it each day rather ...

Hermitage & Ballet

A travel blog entry by kerryb

It felt like we'd walked 20 miles in the last two days, but it was well worth the experience. Tomorrow, late in the afternoon we arrive in Stockholm and will spend the night and next day ...

Ancient City Of Wonders

A travel blog entry by john.babinec
