The must sees...

Since i was here, i kindda "had to" go see the Hemitage museum!
Visiting Saint Petersburg without seeing the Hermitage would be total nonsense! like seeing Paris without seeing the Louvre! (which i probably wouldn't have a problem with actually..)
But anyway, so i went.. and as nice as it is, i have to say it's just too much gold in there! can't breathe!.. but i did love the amazing wooden floors!

The view out the window on the square is pretty cool too..

..and talking of the must sees, the "Church of the spilled blood" (cause it was build in memory of the assassination of the Tsar.. er was it Alexander the 2nd? i forgot already!) is pretty cool..
