Venäläisellä bussilla Pietariin

Rajan yli kiidettiin hitaasti venäläisellä bussilla ja saavuttiin Pietariin myöhään toissailtana. Matka oli junailua kiinnostavampaa ja takuulla halvempaa, bussilla pääsi kahdellakympillä. Tervetulokomitea Pietarin päässä oli mukava ja päästiin heti väsyneet matkaajat kuumaan suihkuun ja...

The Baltics, a job and no more hitching :'(

Priviet priviet! How is life everyone? Since we last spread our news like pesticide over ravaged crops, we have been to 4 more countries, so there's a lot to tell so im gonna do some summing up. We hitched from Warsaw fairly early on the monday before last, after an interesting skype...

Reflections

Before going anywhere it is a good principle to research the area and what to see. Guide books are good for this of course but we found in addition an excellent website with lots of good ideas, pictures, a virtual tour and information – www.saint-petersburg.com Getting to Saint-Petersburg in...

Last day in Saint P, a sub zero sunny day and a hidden jewel

Friday 30th October A slightly more leisurely start to the day with nothing vital to do and the prospect of a long day ahead. As we opened the curtains we saw a truly glorious sunny day outside. After breakfast, we packed our bags and took them downstairs to be stored until our taxi at 3:30. ...

From the plushness of Puskin to the heights of St Isaac's and shopping at Gostinyy Dvor

Thursday 29th October Up reasonably early again, to be breakfasted and ready for our trip to Pushkin by 10. We have discovered that by taking the 'dietary breakfast' option, we get a huge breakfast; a glass of orange juice, a coffee, yoghurt, a good portion of muesli, a large fresh fruit salad...

The City and beyond

Wednesday 28th October Today was the first of our out of town tours. Our lady guide seemed a little businesslike and in trying to make small talk, I discovered that there were some no-go and sensitive areas. I guess after many years of having to be careful about what you said and to whom,...

The Hermitage no self-respecting hermit would contemplate

Tuesday 27th October Up and out fairly early to see the bronze horseman near to St Isaac's Cathedral, then on through Admiralty Gardens to be at the Hermitage shortly after opening. After a short queue to get in, another to get our tickets and a final one to deposit our coats and bags (which...

Churches, bridges and men in tights.

Saturday 24th October Up at 5 and left the cottage at 6. Surprisingly heavy traffic, light rain but reached T2 for 7:15. Although we had checked in online, KLM have made the mistake of leaving the airport check in robots at the entry to the queues for the baggage drop, so people that hadn't...

St. Petersburg... Russian 101

We have arrived in Russia! Chad’s first time and Ewa’s second time. We were expecting to step off the plane to AK-47 armed police and a stiff set of questions at the customs office. However, there were only a few lazy looking officials on the tarmac, and we cruised through customs with...

A city to impress

SP is a beautiful city built to impress… and it really does with its magnificent palaces, churches, fortresses, opening bridges… and overall that air of being more of a cultural capital. Peter the Great and those Tzars who followed him definitely did a great job. Visited lots of places but the...
