Sankt Petersburg

Saint Petersburg (short: SPb, Russian: Санкт-Петербург) is a city of Russia located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. It is informally known as Piter (Пи́тер). SPb is the northernmost city of the world with over one million people. SPb is often described as the most Westeuropean city of Russia.
From 1924 to 1991, in honor of Lenin, the founder of the Soviet Union, the city was called Leningrad (Ленинград).

    Lovely architecture; and especially the grey building. I love the unique style of the facade; and especially the unusual glass dome on the top.

        Top of the day to ya, Manfred!
        I do envy you being able to hop aboard a train and traveling to any of your favorite towns and/or cities within a few hours. Since you don't have to be stressed out by the madness on the autobahn, you arrive at your destination refreshed and ready for a day of delightful sightseeing and shopping. You also have the choice of remaining overnight in the chosen city, or you're close enough to return home on a late evening train. No such service is available in the States or Canada. In the States, you can spend more than half a day trying to get a train to your destination.
        Happy weekend!
        Luv ya!
