Amber Room Rating:
Very attractive room that is an exact replacement for the stolen amber. Pictures were not allowed which doesn't seem to have any basis for hurting the amber.
Catherine Palace Rating:
Truly amazing. I thought it was better than Versailles.
Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood Rating:
As good as the pictures. Gorgeous onion domes and amazing tile work inside. Look closely at all of the craft it took to make these scenes out of tiny tiles.
City Tour Rating:
Super. Venice of the North is a good title for this city.
Hermitage Museum Rating:
Too much to see. Done't even blink or a major item will be missed.
Neva River Cruise Rating:
The river cruise gives another side of the city. So many attractive buildings, churches, spires, domes, boats, iron work bridges to see.
Peter & Paul Fortress Rating:
Peterhof Palace Rating:
St. Isaac's Cathedral Rating:
Yusupov Palace Rating:
The history of the building is an important part of what everyone knows about old Russia.
