St Petersburg: Gallery

Today’s post is a gallery of miscellaneous photos from around St Petersburg, aside from the Winter and Peterhof Palaces, which I will post in the next two weeks. St Petersburg is one of my favourite cities and I wish I had more time to explore. Here’s hoping one day I will be able to visit again. Enjoy!

Arriving at the station felt like being in an Anna Karenina film.

The Kazan Cathedral

St Isaac’s Cathedral (Исаа́киевский Собо́р), the largest Russian orthodox cathedral in the city. Dates back to 1858.

The western facade of St Michael’s (or Mikhailovsky) Castle (Миха́йловский за́мок), a former royal residence of Czar Paul I.

Otto von Bismarck, as ambassador at the Prussian Embassy from 1859 to 1862, lived at No. 50 on the English Embankment.
