    A hidden gem

    by

    Sky Hotel is one of those hidden gems you come across every now and then.
    Although situated on the 6th floor of an old apartment block, there is a lift, so no need to climb up the stairs after a long days sightseeing or with heavy baggage.
    Location wise its just perfect. Nevsky Prospect is only a short walk, as is the Church of spilt Blood, Kazan Cathedral and the Hermitage. Canal trips departing on the Moika Canal are just around the corner too.
    All the staff are extremely helpfuland very knowledgeable about the city.
    Cleanliness of this hotel is second to none.
    Altogether for the price paid it is excellenet value for money

    Directions: A short walk from Nevsky Prospect. Turning opposite Zara shop

Winter in St Petersburg

by Maz57

Hi
I am travelling to Moscow and St Petersburg in Febuary 09. I am wanting to take photos in a beautiful city in the snow. I believe that the statues are covered for the winter in St Petersburg. Are all statues covered and does this apply in Moscow as well. Is it almost guaranteed that there will be snow at that time of the year.

I've never been there - but here's what Wikipedia reports for weather (scroll down - big chart)

hehe that's funny pp - I think bad if you wanted snow - I would imaging people don't want a real bad winter with lots of storms - yes?

Amazing! I have been to Norway, Denmark, and Sweden, but look forward to going to Finland when I go to Russia, which I hope is next year.

I'll probably start posting for safety for a woman traveling alone in Russia - but will probably end up having a concierge arrange for a tour guide when there.

When I was in St Petersburg and Moscow it was January and they were having an exceptionally cold spell!

It was delightful, at several locations in both cities there were ice sculptures of a very good standard also one street in Moscow had 40-50 life sized snowmen. This more than compensates should any statues be covered, though I must say I never noticed any.

You will have the huge advantage in St P that there will be no cruise ships so you will be able to see the glorious Hermitage etc with far fewer people.

Wrap up well and have sensible footwear, in Moscow they favor polished granite pavements and cobbles in Red Square -treacherously slippy if you are not used to it.

Enjoy

Having just returned from St Petersberg we were told by several people that for the last 2 winters it has hardly snowed at all and that the winters have been grey and wet. Global warming strikes again. 40 years ago the temps got down to minus 20 and the Neva River froze enough to have Ice fairs, now it rarely freezes and not enough that it is safe to travel on.

Re: Winter in St Petersburg

I was there in Jan 2006 so the planet cannot have warmed that much! It was cold, cold, cold. I guess its just pot luck.

Doubters can see photos on my Russia pages.

Re: Winter in St Petersburg

by conmarsden

Hi there, with the global warming and all the machinery running underground no snow - kinda slushy substance and no statues are covered, be careful where you shoot though! if in the underground watch out so they dont come to you and fine you, there some rules and regulations... otherwise they are cool with somebody taking pictures on the street. I do believe same rules apply to Moscow pretty much more or less. Take care.

HERMITAGE MUSEUM
The visit to...

by SirRichard

HERMITAGE MUSEUM
The visit to this Museum deserves a stay in St. Petersburg.
The State Hermitage is the largest museum in Russia possessing tremendous artistic value. It is amongst such treasure-houses of art as the Louvre, the National Gallery, the Metropolitan and el Museo del Prado.
The museum occupies five edifices, four of which form the characteristic magnificent outlook of the Dvorkovaia Square (see photo).
The art gallery exhibits the works of Raphael and Leonardo da Vinci, Titian and Murillo, Rubens and Rembrandt, Picasso and many others. European sculpture and artware are also abundant.

Money: Russian Ruble

by HORSCHECK

Russia is a country of cash, so it is best to pay cash. In the last years the Russian Ruble has been relatively stable, so it is best to pay in Russian Rubles instead of other currencies.

I saw several Americans who wanted to pay in US Dollars but the shops refused to take them. Credit Cards are accepted in a few places like hotels, restaurants or airports.

There are enough cash points all over the town; you find at least one at every metro station.

Apart from that, there are plenty of exchange offices in the city centre. Their rates vary slightly. I would recommend you to ask how many Roubles you really get for your currency, just to make sure that no commission is added.

a little corner of Egypt

by call_me_rhia

You can find a little corner of Egypt even in Saint Petresburg... not only there's a gracious Egyptian bridge, but there are also two sphynxes, on Sphynx embankment.

They were found in Tebes and date back to 1450 before Christ. In 1833 they were taken to Saint Petersburg.

You can find them on the Vasilevskij island.

Yusupov Palace ~ Moorish Room

by Canadienne

The rooms of the palace are unique and breathtaking. . .each generation of the family revamped certain rooms, so the styles are varied, but almost all are refined and impressive.

My favourite was the Moorish Room, pictured here, which is decorated in mosaics and lattice screens, with a fountain in the centre of the room.
