St. Petersburg, Russia

Just a walk in the park with some amazing architecture all lit up! In fact, just about every building in St. Petersburg was lit up. I can only imagine the power bill…but no self respecting photographer would ever complain about it! LOL

The Naval Cathedral of Saint Nicholas and Epiphany in the Winter

The Naval Cathedral of Saint Nicholas and Epiphany — Featuring its Elizabethan baroque styles in winter glory! I spent a full hour enjoying a setting sun in this park just before attending my first Russian ballet at the nearby Mariinsky Theatre. Consecrated in 1762.

The Armorial Hall of the Winter Palace

This majestic room was just so incredibly beautiful that I had to take a few minutes to sit down and enjoy it. The architecture, afternoon sunshine and colour scheme was all so very nice and warm! Featured in this room is a bowl made from the mineral aventurine, which according to the Hermitage, was crafted by Yekaterinburg Lapidary Works in the 19th century.

St. Petersburg, Russia – Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood, Winter

The Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood, or, as it is more officially known, the Church of the Resurrection. Just an all-out amazing display of details and colours from every possible angle! Taken during a very cold winter night, with the lamp posts and snow making the moment extra beautiful. The city of St. Petersburg, Russia easily gains a spot in my personal “top 5 most amazing cities” that I’ve ever seen! This place packs a serious amount of cultural capital! And, as I have heard some say: it stands as the star jewel of Russia…
