We were pretty excited to discover a jazz festival was on at the historic Saint Peter and Paul Fortress by the Neva River. Performers included the Marcus Miller band (US) who had the whole audience grooving and other international as well as local acts
We also visited the informative Museum of Political History which included Lenin's old study and many items of propaganda and a museum on Russian theatre. Kate also went to see the Kirov Ballet at the famous Marinskii theatre which was built in the 1800s and was beautifully decorated, while Michael took in some more jazz - a cultural feast!
We head off now to Estonia after a thoroughly enjoyable few weeks in Russia.
