We landed in Saint Petersburg in April and it was still freezing cold with flakes. We explore the refined Russian historical architectures in the outskirt area: Peterhof Palace (a.k.a the Summer Palace) and Catherine Palace.
This episode is about the onion domes. Visiting Novodevichy Convent, St. Basil’s Cathedral, Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, and most importantly, Moscow Kremlin and admire the beauty of Russian architecture!
So…I wondering what should be my 100th post; and I think it would be great to celebrate it with a compilation of the Cathedrals in Europe ~ 🙂 So it’s a list of my choices of the most “memorable” cathedrals in Europe – They are the top of the list based on its look, its scale or its uniqueness.
The Winter Palace, now officially named the Stat Hermitage Museum, in “Venice of the North” Saint Petersburg, is one of the most visited attractions and one of the largest art museums in Europe. Countless great names have their masterpieces proudly displayed in the extravagant rooms. To me, the rooms are the highlights of my visit to the State Hermitage. I suggest doing a little bit of research beforehand and learn about the location of the rooms…
Everyone loves art. I love art. Art is everywhere in town, but walking through all the top 5 art galleries is a marathon challenge. One requires energy, good legs, stamina, strategies, time, strong desire, and passion… It is all about my pick of top 10 European classical art museums in the world !
C.D.L. truly welcomed any guests, and one could also enjoy a traditional and elegant Russian cuisine, with good value.
The recent Rubles drop really saved a lot on my travel budget to Russia; I joined a Moscow Free Tour for the second day of my trip – All in all, this tour covers a great deal of Moscow classics, and travelers should (like us) definitely explore them one by one afterwards!
