St Petersburg Tour inc Romanov Tombs

After the Hermitage and Winter Palace followed by Lunch at the Russian Vodka Restaurant (Totally abstemious !!!) it was off around St Petersburg visiting loads of famous bits and culminating at the Cathedral of SS Peter & Paul inside the Peter & Paul Fortress and associated cells and dungeons where many a Russian spent time and many met a very grisly end !!
