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.

colorfull fall.

This time of year there is so much color to see. The skies and trees color red and isn't that beautiful.
I made a few photo's so you can see.

Sunrise a few days ago.

A wild sundown last week.

And this sundown was so beautiful.

St Petersburg, Russia.

And then we visited beautiful St Petersburg. We were here last year as well but there is so much to see that we made another bus and boat trip through the city. My legs and feet are not what they used to be some years ago  so sadly enough no  long walking excursions for me. But this was fine too.
 I start with just a few snaps here and there. St Petersburg was crowded as you can see.

             Please click on photo's to enlarge them.

Numerous bridges over the river Teva that goes through and round te city.

Yes, the Swedish shop, here too.

There was a lot of rebuilding work I suppose but is was all neatly covered by these large painted cloths.

Here two photo's of little parts of the beautiful Church of the spilled Blood ( Church of the Resurrection). Stunning art and handwork. I will post a picture of the whole church next time together with a few more churches.

Warnemunde, Germany.

The  second stop of our cruise was  a little tourist place in north Germany called Warnemunde. We went for a walk and of course I took my camera.

I love these  sorts of houses.

An enormous an beautiful sandsculpture.

What a lovely sunny day.

Souvenir shops.


Another lovely sandsculpture, so cleverly made.

And a nice little train.
