St Petersburg, Russia # 2

Today, in my second post, I want to show you a few of the beautiful churches or cathedrals we saw here.. I am using a few photo's from last years trip because they look better. As I told you in my first post we only saw a little of St Petersburg but here are some views.




St Isaac's Cathedral
built between 1818 and 1858



Top of St Isaac's cathedral.









Just a little piece of the front of Church on the spilled blood.






The Sts Peter and Paul fortress and Cathedral.



This was the only church we could visit. The interior is so stunningly beautiful I will show that in another post.








A few photo's of the St Nicolas cathedral, so beautiful and so blue.
















I don't know which church this was. There is so much to see and too much to remember. Couldn't find it in my book of St Petersburg.

Lieve Rietje,

Wat weer een GEWELDIG mooie serie foto's laat je ons zien.
Zooooooooooo, die blauwe kerk met de zwarte belijning aan de
bovenkant, een bijzonder mooie kerk is dit. En dat dan in
combinatie met het fantastische weer, de strak blauwe hemel
waardoor alles nog veel mooier uitkomt.

Als je al die prachtige gebouwen ziet daar wat wonen we
in Nederland dan toch in simpele blokkendozen.
Wat zullen jullie genoten hebben om al die moois van
zo dichtbij te kunnen bewonderen, geweldig!!!

Geniet van een fijne week liefie,

Veel liefs,
Josephine

Ook dit is weer een hele mooie serie foto's van een prachtige stad. Het lijkt mij totaal geen straf om hier vaker naar toe te gaan, er is zoveel te zien en je ontdekt vast elke keer weer iets anders. Erg leuk om met jou mee te mogen kijken, Riet.

Ik wens je een fijne week. Liefs, Ingrid

Amazing structural designs and wonderful photos you got there. I am awed whey they have lots of cathedrals when it is a communist country, just shows my ignorance about this country. lol

So many amazing shots of these churches and cathedrals my dear. I really wouldn't have guessed that Russia has so many gorgeous buildings. I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit to St. Petersburg! Your photos are gorgeous Riet. Through your camera lens I feel like I can visit these beautiful places too!

Delightful! My first visit to St.Petersburg is many years ago, it was still called Leningrad. A magical place I am keen on visiting again.
