How to behave in Russia :-) Saint Petersburg Reviews
Sep 06, 2007
my lovely adventure with Russia is awesome. Love this country and love all Russians (not Putin an obviously his mafia:-)), but people in Russia are great company.
BUT THEY MOSTLY DOESN'T SPEAK A FOREIGN LANGUAGE JUST RUSSIAN.
BE PREPARE< THAT IF YOU DOESN'T KNOW "AZBUKA" (alphabet) YOU'LL NOT BE ABLE TO READ ANYTHING!!
I have traveled from Moscow to St. Petersburg by fast train, comfortable and luxurious could recommend but tip is to book ticket month ago otherwise u'll have to flight there:-). This is part of the Russian culture, trains, have to experience it:-).
Visit the Hermitage (u'll love it), from the infamous cruiser "Aurora" to the landmark St. Isaac's Cathedral, Neva's prospect...Bridges huuuhh, the Venice of the North boasts over 500 bridges ranging from the very narrow pedestrian Lions and Bank chain bridges to the unique Medieval and Modern styled Bolshoi Okhtinsky's Bridge and the giant drawbridges, which span the wide Neva River.
Parks - One of St. Petersburg's many claims to fame is that it has more green space than Paris. Whether this is true or not, the city does have some exceptionally fine parks and gardens - and all the information you need about them is here, in our handy guide to the parks and gardens of St. Petersburg.
Museums - St. Petersburg is often referred to as the "Gorod Muzei" and locals take great pride in preserving the city and country's great heritage in scores of museums ranging from the massive Russian Museum to the extensive Russian Ethnographic Museum.
Monuments - The cultural capital of Russia is adorned with scores of historic and impressive monuments ranging from "three horsemen" monuments, which are said to guard the city to the triumphal arches, which act as a gateway into the city.
Cathedrals - The former center of a vast and diverse empire, St Petersburg is home to hundreds of different churches representing many denominations and faiths, though we believe that it is probably most famous for its collection of Russian Orthodox cathedrals.
It's just a quick review of Beautiful city as This one is. This city is my fairy tail one:-)
