It turns out I actually almost never posted about my last summer travels to - what people would usually call 'Eastern Europe' - but I'd prefer calling them trips to Russia and back home - to Belarus. Ok, in fact I wrote one post about Kaliningrad here - check it out it was really educational for me... And now it's been already more than half a year since these trips, however the memories - especially about Saint Petersburg - are still as bright as if it happened last week.
Saint Peter's is a truly wonderful place, definitely a cultural capital of Russia, as opposed to Moscow, which is a political one. We especially chose to go during last days of June to be able to visit during the time of white nights - the nights when it never gets completely dark in northern latitudes. I have loads of photos from the streets, palaces, canals and museums of St. Peter's - but here are some I love the most, captured during that strange time of the year, when walking the city's streets and roaming the canals becomes especially magical.
