St Petersburg, part one

I spent two days in St Petersburg, which is a very short trip, indeed. The first day was a rainy national holiday in Russia. All the banks were closed, and I quickly ran out of rubles. I also had a hard time finding the correct location for Nordhostel, of which there are only two. Also, my stupid camera stopped working. So I was a lost, moneyless tourist with no camera, and I enjoyed myself very much.

And here is where my camera died. Watch for further posts, which will show the interiors of the church and the Hermitage Museum, located inside the Winter Palace.

  1. Cool pictures. I think I’m getting better at deciphering Russian writing. I’m pretty sure that sign on the left tells me you are near the So-and-So University of Economics and Finance.

  2. Lovely. It’s always been a dream of mine to go to St. Petersburg. Until I do your photos will tide me over. Thank you.
