We came by high speed train from Helsinki to St Petersburg to join our cruise ship. We have now been moored here for two nights and will be leaving later this afternoon. Have had two very busy days here in St Petersburg. Yesterday we spent the morning at the Hermitage Art Gallery before doing a city tour of some of the highlights. We had an early morning start today to visit Peterhoff and tour the palace and the water gardens. It was wonderful and very similar to Versailles.
Wi-fi is a problem on the boat and is restricted to a few areas ( reception and the bar). Reports might be short and not very often.
