We had a lovely time in Saint Petersburg. I was nervous about it before coming here, wondering if it was safe to just walk around, but it is. We walked all the way around the main sights in a big circle. Here are my impressions from the day.
Funny story about the Winter Palace. I said, I don’t care where we go but I want to see that green building we saw from the taxi. Then we stopped on a park bench and plotted our self-guided walking tour on the map. First stop was the Winter Palace. I said, “Okay, that works, because we’ll pass that really beautiful green building on the way there.”
Yes, you guessed it. The green building is the Winter Palace.
