... Van Gogh, Monet, Rembrandt, Da Vinci, was pretty overwhelming. Apart from the paintings, there are a lot of other interesting items, including a giant golden peacock clock.

... Bastion was our next stop. This was the prison and was very dark and dank. Outside the cells were stories of of political prisoners and convicts who were detained during uprisings and detailed their fate.
Then we decided to dip our feet in the Neva River before heading back to the hotel via Metro again.
Wendy had booked a lovely Gorgian Restaurant with the help of our concierge. A short walk over the canal, and we ...
