The Hermitage Museum & Peter and Paul Fortress, St PetersBurg


Hi Everyone, πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoyedΒ our first post from St Petersburg. This is a collection of photos we clicked during our visit to the Grand Hermitage Museum and Peter & Paul Fortress. Both the places were laden with snow. The Hermitage Museum was sooooo big, it is nearly impossible to see all of it in many visits too. It reminded us of the Vatican in Italy. Around later afternoon we visited the beautiful Peter and Paul Fortress and just caught on the gorgeous beauty of the place. Not to mention it was spine chilling cold to an extent that sometimes our fingersΒ started paining while clicking the photos. But now looking back at the pics, it only looks like a dream. πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoy these gorgeous clicks Sanjeev captured through his lens. πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to show you the final post already. Lovee you a ton and I hope you are enjoying the 2016 already. mwwwwaaahhh!!!

The Peter and Paul Fortress is the original citadel of St. Petersburg, Russia, founded by Peter the Great in 1703 and built to Domenico Trezzini’s designs from 1706-1740. In the early 20th century, it was still used as a prison by the tsarist government.
