How do I pick just a few from everything St. Petersburg offers? I will go with two. Two pix each.
The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood attracts most St. Petersburg visitors (and a healthy share of the city's pickpockets). It was built on the site where Emperor Alexander II was
murdered in 1881.
Peter and Paul Fortress was built at the direction of Peter the Great from 1712 through 1733.
In the fortress' cathedral, the body of Peter the Great is interred, along with
most of the other Romanovs.
