Tucked away in some woods this pretty little church is very close to the entrance to the Palace, and most people are keen to get in there, spare 10 minutes at the church, its worth a look.

When visiting Russia there are so many places to see and every one of them is spectacular! You cannot think that this is how people lived - not so long ago!

We had a short visit with our guide. Relatively simple tombs of the Romanovs including that of Nicholas II and his family. For me it helped put the various Tsars in perspective after a long day! A good place to wind up our day.

Gilded opulence. Amazing. Beautiful, awe inspiring and a must see. Unfortunately everyone else and their cousin also sees it as a must see so it is very crowded.

The cathedral is beautiful and is certainly fitting as the last resting place of most of the Russian Czars. Our tour was quite whistlestop but was one where we were able to appreciate this Russian Orthodox place of worship. One of the many "must sees"...More
