Saint-Petersburg: the Only European City in Russia

I love you, Peter’s great creation,
I love your view of stern and grace,
The Neva wave’s regal procession,
The grayish granite – her bank’s dress . . .

Alexander Pushkin, 1833

You can fall in love with Saint-Petersburg. Having come to this city once you want to come back here again and again.

  1. You’re making me jealous Victor.
    These photographs are a reminder that I had the chance to go to Russia twice and didn’t. Aaah! However, one of my travel goals is to take the train from Berlin to Moscow and pop over to Saint-Petersburg for a few days. Here’s to hoping! 😀

    p.s. Happy New Year Victor!

  2. Wonderful to see your fantastic photos of this great city. We have had 2 very full days in St Petersburg & seen many wonderful places. The museums & churches were sensational. Great to see that you are travelling again.

  3. You have done a daring thing, my friend. Although you enlisted your great poet to assist you.
    And, to accompany his words, your excellent photographs.
    Yes. I look forward to seeing the Neva wave’s regal procession.

  4. I’ve always been intrigued by Saint Petersburg for its rich history and great architecture. Luckily now Indonesians can apply for e-visa to go to Russia, although for that trip to happen I might need to wait a little longer (at least until the pandemic is pretty much under control).

    1. You don’t need to wait. Now is the best time for visiting museums. “Pandemic” restrictions are minimal in Russia, just wear you mask in a museum or transport. Museums are empty, no lines, no crowds, tickets are awailable always…
