St. Petersburg – a movable feast

In St. Petersburg you are taken back a century or two or three. The city was built because a Tsar, Peter the Great, wanted it to be built. It was Russia’s stake on the Baltic, window on the West, and bulwark against the forces of Northern Europe, (Sweden, Germany and Denmark ) that at various times threatened Russia from the North. A fortress in many ways. A grandiose capital with majestic squares and regal palaces. The best way to see the city is to walk, take Neva river and canal tours, and visit the many museums.
