3 out of 5
Be sure to eat some "fish bait" at the harbor; wonderful snack if you can get to it before the seagulls!
Don't Miss: The rock church and the esplanade
3 out of 5

Don't Miss: The pedestrian street with its many vendors; just wandering around.

The changing of the guard was a disappointment; we waited for some time, thought there were horses involved........but all in all, exciting.
Don't Miss: The old town
3 out of 5
Of course we took a guided tour to the Hermitage and to Peterhof; our visit to the Hermitage was a disappointment as they were so crowded and the crowds were not managed; our guide was a little tense, we had a hard time hearing; our tour of the city seemed to criss-cross the same area several times and we would have loved to see the subway stations with their hanging chandeliers; our lunch was a great effort on their part, but very mediocre -- it would have been better to have a local "snack" and move on to more "sites to see"; our trip to Peterhof was much better because the guide was much more relaxed, told us something of the economy, culture, her trip to the US and her impressions; Peterhof crowds were much better managed (although very joyless), but we came away with a better feel for the culture.
Don't Miss: Peterhof and St. Petersburg itself

We did this on our own, so don't know if we got to see the "must see" points, but we thoroughly enjoyed it anyway; we liked being able to walk to the town and then back to the ship; we didn't eat there.

We didn't eat there; took a "cheesey train" around the town and wall; absolutely stunning place!
Don't Miss: The Old town, the botanical garden, the flowers growing everywhere!!!!!

We took the train into Rostock; loved the St. Martin church, chatting with the locals, lots of places to wander;
Don't Miss: The resort itself; such lovely shops, looking at the beach!
