Last Day in St. Petersburg

Today was our last day in St. Petersburg and we started off the tour with an hour drive to the town where the Peterhoff palace was located. The palace was not as extravagant as the Catherine the great palace. But the gardens definitely were larger and prettier with golden gilded fountains covering the back garden and strange trick fountains that spray guests. Many of the palaces in Russia were ...

It actually has a mountain range on city fringe which is just 100m above sea level and that constitutes a mountain. The palace was built in mid 18th century, partially destroyed in WWII and meticulously rebuilt. ...

... though many buildings are pretty well blackened on the outside. Still, much gold adorns many of them, shining like a beacon from the top of towers and cupolas. Rowland and Judy shared the driving to Dresden, brave souls both. Barbara and I sat in quiet admiration as sports cars streamed past us ... we were only doing the posted speed of 120 k, after all. We didn't dare do more because our companion GPS, dubbed Helga, was quick to sternly admonish us if ...
