We had two nights in St.Petersburg and wanted to spend our time getting to know the vibe of the city.
We walked around a lot, ate out in the restaurants, went to nice cafés and just enjoyed the city and all the beautiful buildings and churches. The only tourist attraction we went to see was the Hermitage museum which was really impressive.
Did something funny, strange or interesting happen on your trip?
It was interesting how the stores turn in to bars in order to find a loophole in the law that prevents stores from selling alcohol in the night.
What’s your tip to others visiting St. Petersburg?
The Hermitage museum for sure! It has so much interesting art and architecture – just make sure you have enough time!
The hostel (Friends) we stayed at was really nice and we would recommend it. There was also a really nice vegetarian restaurant close by which had nice atmosphere and awesome food. (Café Ukrop, Malaya Konyushennaya 14)
