St. Petersburg, Russia

Palace SquareBill, the travel agent, discovered that we can hop on a ferry in Helsinki, Finland and get a 72 hour visa St. Petersburg – the cultural capital of Russia.  All we had to do is present  a hotel confirmation from one of Russia’s approved hotels.

A round trip ticket was only $150. and it included 2 nights on the ferry – so we considered the ferry ride free.

St. Petersburg did indeed live up to it’s cultural hype.  We only had 48 hours and it wasn’t near enough.  The Hermitage alone could take weeks.
