Whereas the first post focused on a few of St. Petersburg non-Royal sights (here’s the first), today is about royalty, so “opulence” is the word of the day.
There’s a tad of gold in most rooms, but they prohibited photos in the awesome Amber Room (here’s a video of Catherine’s Palace for those wanting more)
The fountains at Peterhof are an architectural marvel (See more of Peterhof’s 234 acres in this video)
Hope you enjoyed a glimpse of the royal opulence in St. Petersburg. As the Celebrity Constellation sails away for Helsinki and a chance of us to gain an extra hour of sleep, enjoy these short videos recapturing some of the beauty this city has to offer. (Direct link to Helsinki post)
