Our first visit to Russia, April 12- 17, 2004

St. Petersburg - A city of superlatives

One of the canals in St. Petersburg, on the mouth of the Neva  River

The church on Spilled Blood (It's not leaning. The photo is just taken at an angle.)

St. Isaac's cathedral -- The most ornate I have ever seen, I believe.

Marble - Malachite - Lapis lazuli - Gold etc. Unbelievable!

The huge dome - one of the largest in the world!

Jim and Ceci in front of The Hermitage - a Rococco castle and incredible art museum!
