In St. Petersburg

We have made it to our destination and are having a grand time settling in.  Our first night in the city was Orthodox Christmas Eve, so we took the opportunity to visit Kazan Cathedral.

Christmas Eve at Kazan Cathedral.
Nevsky Prospect and the entire city is illuminated with exquisite holiday lights for Christmas and New Year's.  What a special time of year to arrive in this city!

My boys in front of Dom Knigi, 'House of Books', glittering with lights.
The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, Spas na Krovi, just across the way.
We are enjoying exploring our new surroundings and look forward to more excursions.  More photos to come!


  1. St. Petersburg must be a beautiful city! Your boys look very happy... ;-) Enjoy your stay! ;-)
