Hello everyone ! I’m very happy to meet you again with a very special post today. Today, I’m not sharing DIYs, I’m about to share with you pictures and other things about my recent one-month travel to Saint Petersburg in Russia. Have you ever gone there ? Tell me in the comments please. Today’s post will be a Travel Diary.
So let’s get started !
Why did I go to Saint Petersburg ?
I didn’t tell you, but I’m still studying. And russian language is one of my study subjects. Something important about learning a language, is that you MUST go to the country. To practizise, to learn more about the culture, to meet with locals and get contacts…. Moreover, this is a good excuse for travelling 😉 This is the reason why I went to Russia. And why this city ? Just because I’ve always been quite fond of this city, so why not ?
But, stop talking, here are some of my many pictures I took. I hope you’ll feel through them how beautiful this city is.
Peter and Paul Fortress
Yusupov(owned by the richest family in Europe, even richer than Russia’s Emperors)
Tsarskoe Selo(with the Catherine Palace which was destroyed during the Second WorldWar and entirely been restaured recently)
Peterhof(The Russian Versailles on the Finland Gulf)
