We returned from Saint Petersburg on Saturday evening---exhausted but very happy.
We loved the city, the people, the stunning architecture, the food and the art. St. Petersburg is so much more than we expected: a diverse bustling city that rivals any in Europe. We truly loved it; especially all the rivers and canals. Our hotel, the Pushka Inn was wonderful. The staff was exceptional and the restaurant next door was a favorite spot. There, and at many other restaurants we enjoyed the Russian cuisine. So thank you very much for our tour!
The highlight of our trip was a visit to The Contemporary Museum, or "New Museum". It will open to the public in September. Our guide worked with your representative company in St. Petersburg to arrange a visit to this outstanding museum because I was an artist and wanted to see it if I could. She arranged this completely. Please, let this company know, by email if you can, how much we appreciated this. We were given a private tour by the Director of the museum and it was marvelous. All fabulous abstract art. The Russians are VERY TALENTED ARTISTS!! Needless to say I was overwhelmed by the Hermitage and the Russian Museum, but this private tour in an yet unopened art museum was thrilling.
Again, many thanks. We will never forget beautiful St. Petersburg!
