St Peter and Paul Fortress

Community Highlights Europe St Peter and Paul Fortress

Hotel said they had to move us to another room this morning so we were a bit worried. Turned out to be an upgrade to a much bigger and nicer room. Bonus!!

Did I mention we like metro stations :). If you're following the blogs you know we love them. Here is our station Admiralteyskaya. It's the deepest metro in the world and takes forever to go down the super fast escaltor.

Another perfect day. Warm and clear blue skies. Good for photos. Decided to catch some sights around St Petersberg - Winter Palace, Kazan Church, Saviour on Spilled Blood, St Peter & Paul Fortress.

A warm and sunny star.pngstar.pngstar.pngstar.png 4 star day.
