Don't Miss: Vigeland Park- the sculpture park

I highly recommend booking a tour with DenRus. The tour was excellent and worth the price.. Our tour guide for the 2 days Ludmilla was excellent. try to see the metro.
Don't Miss: Peterhoff and the Hermitage Museum

Apparently this was the first and only time the ship came to this port. It was worth the visit and some place I probably would never have seen.We took the Hop On Hop Off bus
Don't Miss: The post office. I would have liked to have seen the Soviet Nuclear Site

Pros: The ports

Cons: The internet service-too slow

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!
