About St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

Peter the Great styled this to be his Venice of the North. Italian architects created baroque facades, the match of any, to line the banks of the Neva River. Long, arched bridges join the city's halves. You'll want to see the spires of the Saints Peter and Paul Fortress, the blue domes of the Ouspensky Cathedral and, of course, some of the million masterworks of art contained in the Hermitage galleries of the Winter Palace.

Russian visas are expensive and take a real effort to acquire--highly recommend a packaged tour.

Didn't realize we needed a Visa ahead of time, or HAD to take an excursion. We did book 3 excursions, so we were OK. Visited Peterhoff, Hermitage, and opera.

Wow. Of course, the palaces, the churches, the monuments, the statues, the history... all were amazing. Alexander Nevsky Cemetary is another place to visit, where Dostoevsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky, and other artistic and literary greats are buried.
