Russia: St Petersburg

Published (updated: ) in places.

St Petersburg was a terrific experience.

We memorably spent summer solstice there, and stayed up to witness the midnight sun. The 2 photos above were taken around then. Amazing, and slightly disorientating.

We took a trip to the famous Peterhof Fountains, and I did my best to capture the drama. The gold statues are really something to behold.

This is another one taken at midnight, or near enough.

From St Petersburg, we took another long train journey – to Moscow.
