It's been a few years ago since we went to St. Petersburg, Russia, but I still remember it so well. I was so excited and really wanted to see how the Russians live and wanted to see the city. I was surprised to see the wealth still contained in their museums and palaces.
Many vendors sell Matryoshka nesting dolls.
Lots of beautiful old buildings.
Inside the Hermitage
Jordan Staircase inside the museum
Beautiful huge urns
What was so exciting about the trip was that I was travelling with 2 sisters and lots of relatives. My sister Fe, organized a tour with over 30 of our friends and relatives. Shown below is me and my sister Tessie.
Mariinsky Opera House
Peter the Great Monument
St. Isaac's Cathedral
Me, Tess and my aunt Baby who lives in California. I grew up with her and we used to play together when we were little.
I love the paintings
We were not allowed to take home any antique religious icons, war memorabilia, Russian coins, real fur, etc. So many rules!
Next time I will show you some palaces. Thanks for joining me on this virtual tour. I am happy to link with
