St. Petersburg
I had some good rest at night. The beds were large and soft so that's always a good thing. ;) In the morning, after breakfast, we took a walk along the the water. It has frozen tonight so it was extremely cold. The water was frozen and the sun was shining so it looked extra impressive. I am not used to it, whole frozen rivers.

With my warm cap and jacket on it was pretty good to be outside. On the street it was very busy and it was nice to see the people. That sounds very stupid, but in any country the people are different and that is so much fun to see. I had heard that the women are a bit 'raunchy' here in Russia but then they can call me vulgar. Because they look exactly like us West European women, the only difference is the fur coat and furcaps they bear.
St. Petersburg
Not at all vulgar and not like the women on the boat. Just all nice and pretty girls. I was sometimes hold on the streets because they thought that I am Russian. Okay, my family went a very long time ago from that direction but you can't see it in me. But still, it was quite amusing.

Around nine thirty we were going to visit various buildings and churches / cathedrals. They were totally different than ours, and really beautiful. Whether you believe or not, the buildings are beautiful. The towers only! I love them. :) 
Unfortunately, we could not make pictures in all churches / cathedrals, so you need to go there to see them yourself. :)

The most beautiful church / cathedral to me is the Cathedral of spilled blood.
St. Petersburg
That thing is so beautiful and colorful! I secretly went to St. Petersburg because of this building. (In Moscow also seems to be so much beautiful buildings, all those towers, I must go there also)

After that I bought some Matroeska Babouska dolls and we went to the Peter and Paulusvesting. Here are the Tsaren of Russia buried. Very beautiful inside. Then we went to the Hermitage, this is very impressive. You need to like art and/or architecture, which I happily do, else you won't like it I think. The Hermitage is a museum inside a huge palace. Very beautiful.

We first eaten something and then went to see the lightened city. The lightened city is almost more beautiful!
