From Russia with Love


I went to Russia a few years back as part of a cruise of the Baltic Sea, the ship spent three days docked in St.Petersburg port and I have to say it was the best three days I have ever spent. When I booked the holiday I was a bit nervous, people where giving me mixed messages of Russia. Saying it was dangerous and I couldn’t wear any expensive jewelry out or have my bag visible.  However, I love history and I wanted to see Russia so I booked the holiday and decided I’d just take precautions. When we docked in St.Petersburg I was amazed by the size of the port, it was so vast like nothing I had ever encountered before, it was only a taste of what was to come. Our first tour which was a full day traveling round the city seeing the sites. We decided to do this first to get a feel of the place, I always try to do this first when in a large city it helps you get your baring in a safe environment before you go out exploring on your own.

Once we left the port I was stunned into complete silence, everything was beautiful, the architecture was unbelievable, so unique, the beautiful colours of the buildings, the pale blues and white windows, the statues, the monuments, the epic scale of the entire city it blew me away. I travel quite a lot but this was the most beautiful city I had ever been to, Russia has kept it’s secrets well. While not all the buildings are occupied the city has kept the outside looking beautiful, they are rebuilding some of the palaces and larger homes and it is a credit to the city.

There is so much to see, we where lucky we had book a mixture of tours which let us experience the sights, our first tour as I said took us on an overall tour of the city, that evening we went to a tour of the Hermitage which is the Tsar’s winter palace which now holds one of the largest collections of Art in the world, you would need days to see this, the building itself is so beautiful, there are still details from the time of the Tsars like a throne and paintings and artifacts.

Other sites to visit, the Tsars summer home or Catherine’s Palace is outside St.Petersburg and it is definitely worth a visit. The grounds are spectacular and the architecture will take your breath away. Other things to see would be:

    • Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood
    • Peterhof Palace and Garden

    • Mikhailovsky Opera and Ballet Theater

    • Palace Square

    • Peter and Paul Fortress

I recommend having a wonder around we stayed to the main area’s, did some shopping, took the usual precautions when abroad but the people where so friendly, so helpful that I left with such a great impression of Russia. I would recommend going to see this wonderful city, it is top of my list for favourite holidays of all time, I hope it will be yours too.  🙂
