St Petersburg(2018)
May 2018
View of the city from a cruise on the canals
The boat had warning signs in English not to stand up because of "low bridges"
They weren't kidding!
Historical palaces are now used for shops, businesses and government buildings
Some bridges are very ornate
Connecting buildings over the canal
Sailing out into the Neva River
Fortress of St Peter and Paul
We will explore this site later in the trip
Some bridges are made of stone
Some bridges of intricate design
Partially hidden from view
The "Church on Spilled Blood"
It was constructed on the site of the assassination
of Emperor Alexander II in 1881
It is under restoration until 2025
