St Petersburg begins

Ships that pass in the night
I may have missed sailing into Venice but I made sure I was up and about for the arrival in St Petersburg.  This was somewhere I have wanted to visit since I first discovered Tolstoy, a very long time ago.
This was our arrival..

If you click on the slide it will take you to a closer view and yes, we were that close to the bridge!

My maternal ancestors were Finnish and emigrated to St. Petersburg during the time of the Czar. Your pictures are fascinating. Thanks for sharing!
