    This one we missed because there was some events those days we were in St Petersburg!

    I first saw that church in the 1970s, when the city was still called Leningrad, and the country was the Soviet Union. The whole of the ‘old’ city is a marvel to behold, with the Peter and Paul Fortress, The Winter Palace, and the Venice-like canals. I have been back again, but not since the late 1980s.
