Highlights of St. Petersburg | Russia

Saint Petersburg in Russia is truly an amazing city, located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic sea, it is also the northernmost city in the world with a population of over one million.

Spent 4 days wandering around back in March, long enough to leave me with hungry for more and I hope to be back soon. Like in Moscow the weather was freezing cold, but I didn’t have as much as bad storms as the prior days in Moscow.

Here are some of the photographs that I like the most.
