I think I've taken the most photos in St. Petersburg. There are so many beautiful buildings to see. The whole place is full of palaces, more than you can see in just one trip. When I was at school I remember doing a history project about Rasputin and his strange involvement with the last Tsar family and his even stranger death. I was lucky enough to go to an exhibit about this event and learn more whilst in Russia. If you don't know the story of Rasputin, look it up - it's a really weird tale!
The Winter Palace, now the Hermitage Museum
The Summer Palace
St. Isaac's Cathedral - that's real gold up there!
Random painting hanging in the street that's been... um.... added to...
