Getting off a little dazed.
We went on a tour of the Peter and Paul fortress which was really cool and then inside that was the Peter and Paul Cathedral which supposedly Peter the Great mounted the first public clock on.
Anna was an awesome study tour leader!
Diagram of the fortifications at their finest hour.
A statue of the Peter the Great.
Anna and Jacob in the tyrant's lap
Then we went to see a more glamorous depiction of Peter the Great mounted on his steed.
Then you could look across the street to one of the most famous St. Petersburg landmarks, the Hermitage.
Back on the bus it was time for everyone to review their photos
while Jacob fled rogue snowball attacks.
Later that afternoon we went out and were in search of some palace which was in some Disney film. We actually never even found it but we did stumble across some very cool palaces along the way.
Everyone had their cameras out
Low and behold we actually wound up outside a Russian "Art Nouveau" building I read about in my guidebook.
The snow was quite pretty.

Looking down the canal
St. Petersburg is amazingly pretty, especially in winter
