      Seeing a building crane, you can never be sure what to expect

    Me again, coming back to read your most recent additions to this remarkable page. Beautiful outdoor photos of the city in the winter, and indoor photos from the museum.

    Oleg, fabulous page about St. Petersburg and its several museum. Although I once stayed one week in the city, I didn't even visit one museum, also not the Hermitage. The weather was lovely so that I prefered to explore the city outside.

    Like your night intro photos. I have been to a Blockada museum that was indoors, so it must have been a different one to the outdoor one in your tip.

    So many amazing museums! And I'm sure you only started on them ... Not too much in regards of medieval art, though :-)

      Thanks for visiting and rating. History is my hobby but West European Medieval History is the favorite part of it. So, I can do nothing with me!

    Excellent page! I've enjoyed every page! The inteterior of these museums are out of this world, the excellent paintings and "that" armour - fantastic! Pity is hard for us to go there and see for ourselves.

      Thank you for visiting and rating! Speaking honestly Saint Petersburg is not very far from Australia. We are living during the time of big and fast airplanes! Unfortunately flights are no cheap at all!
