Today I am making a start with showing photo’s from the beautiful city of St. Petersburg. We took an excursion bus tour that lasted about 4 hours and I can tell you we have seen only a tiny little bit of what there is to see. There was a lot more to see with several different excursions but as my legs and feet are not what they used to be, I can only walk and stand a few minutes at a time, this was all we could choose. Most excursions were for a whole day ,in all other cities as well,and that is out of the question for me. I would have loved to visit the Hermitage, one of the most beautiful museums in the world, but that takes a lot of waiting and walking, so a no no for me.
But as I said we had this bustour and it was wonderful. We saw so many interesting things . I am just afraid that I don’t remember all of the things the guide told us. I mostly remember that St Petersburg is full of Palaces ,Cathedrals and bridges and all beautiful.
But I made photo’s and this is the first batch I am going to show. If I remember what’s on it I will put a name under it. And please google that name and you can find everything there. It is so interesting. I bought a book with photo’s and I trying to find out what it all is.
probably little part of the Yusupov palace.
These were the only two letters I could read in this country.)
Thought this was Yusupov palace too.
Statue of Peter the Great. You can find these all over town.
St Isaacs Cathedral. We didn’t have time to go in it but in my book I see that I missed a lot as it is fabulous. I really must go there again some day.
We were there on Whitsun Sunday and there were several brides there..
Sculpture on the church.
I always wonder how they make these beautiful sculptures.
I am still trying to find out which palace this is.
Another happy couple.
St Isaacs square and cathedral.
This is just a preview of one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen, The Church on the spilled blood. Next time I am going to show more photo’s of this church.
This blue is for blue Monday. I did nothing to change the colors. These are real.
I took this photo from the bus and I really don’t know which church this is. I could see it was under construction.
