St Paul’s in Russia

January 15, 2017

Over the holidays, Paulinas were met by a classic Christmas scene as they arrived in Russia: freezing cold and streets covered in snow. In Moscow, they bought the odd Putin Russian doll and Russian fur hats at a traditional Christmas market before braving the Moscow metro to visit an array of famous landmarks in a packed programme including St Basil’s Cathedral, the Kremlin, Tretyakov Gallery and even Moscow’s most famous circus with a range of trained animals. Once in St Petersburg, they had chances to practice the language at the Summer and Winter Palaces, The Dostoyevsky Museum, The Hermitage and a very moving museum on the siege of Leningrad.
