St Petersberg, Russia

Hi Everyone, ๐Ÿ™‚

From Moscow we took around 1.5 hours flight to St Petersberg. While Moscow was all full-of-buzz and happening, St Peterburg turned out to be a gorgeous destination with a lot of history. And it was sooooo beautiful that I have no words. The first view of the city was the parks laden with fresh snow. We stayed at gorgeous Four Seasons, St Petersbug. We had a terrace room with aย little balcony overlooking the city and there was snow there as well. It felt like ย a little fairytale wonderland. ๐Ÿ™‚ The hotel was decorated in a festive mood so I got in a mood to dress up a little glam. I wore this crochet black dress with this gorgeous cashmere and fur coat. I picked up everything from Moscow. Felt both glam and cozy at the same time. ๐Ÿ™‚

The first two days we mostly chilled out taking stroll in the snowy parks. We went to see the Church of the Saviour on Blood. Apart from the gorgeousness of the church, the area around it was so beautiful. The canal was frozen, there were ducks swimming on whatever little water was left, there were wedding shoots happening, and it was dammmmnnn cold. ๐Ÿ˜€

In the evening we went to see the famous light show that takes place every evening at the Hermitage. The building in front of the Hermitage turns into a backdrop for the light display. People gather there with their families, have fun and dance to the tunes of the lights and music. Very memorable. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you enjoy the photos. Two more posts to come. Can’t wait to share more with you all. Wish you all a verryy Happy New year once again! :))

On March 13, 1881 (Julian date: March 1), as Tsar Alexander's carriage passed along the embankment, a grenade thrown by an anarchist conspirator exploded. The tsar, shaken but unhurt, got out of the carriage and started to remonstrate with the presumed culprit. A second conspirator took the chance to throw another bomb, killing himself and mortally wounding the tsar. The tsar, bleeding heavily, was taken back to the Winter Palace where he died a few hours later.

The Church contains over 7500 square meters of mosaicsโ€”according to its restorers, more than any other church in the world.

    Fantastic pics. I am feeling so cold seeing those snow pictures. Delhi is not at all cold this year. Soooo looking forward to go to mommyland(dalhousie) in sometime. Have fun both of you.
    P.S. Would love if you could add some more pics of street fashion of locals of these stylish destinations.

    • Rati says:

      actually with street style pics you have to stop the people, ask for their permission and then click. It’s a job and not something we look forward to do. Most of the time we are moving around taking pics of us or places and having a good time. :))

      thanks a ton!! you have a ton of fun too. happy new year once again! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Rati lovely pics.. I am a silent reader of your blog for quite a long time now. I asked you some details about the Italy trip and we went there last December. It was soo cold and most of the time it was a struggle for us to push ourselves out of the hotel. But hats off to both of you that you guys managed to look so awesome in this weather.
    I have same length of hair and I really like this cute pony of yours. So a small tutorial would help or let me know how you make this messy yet pretty ponytail. One more thing how do you carry so many Blazers with you on your trips. Even if you buy them from abroad….I mean how do you pack them and the weight issues.

  11. Chhavi says:

    And most importantly wish you both and your families a very happy new year.
