Tallin, Estonia

By | Regent Seven Seas Explorer | No Comments

 Tallin, Estonia

 My favorite among the Hanseatic league ( Lithuania and Latvia) The old Town Tallin is a UNESCO Heritage Site.  It was under the Danish, German, Swedish and Russians.

Tallinn, Estonia’s capital on the Baltic Sea, is the country’s cultural hub. It retains its walled, cobblestoned Old Town, home to cafes and shops, as well as Kiek in de Kök, a 15th-century defensive tower. Its Gothic Town Hall, built in the 13th century and with a 64m-high tower, sits in historic Tallinn’s main square. St. Nicholas Church is a 13th-century landmark exhibiting ecclesiastical art.

St Petersburg Metro Tour

By | Regent Seven Seas Explorer | No Comments

 The Metros in Russia are the most beautiful in the world!  Hence touring them is such an amazing adventure.  It’s a good idea because the metro is widely used by everyone, so it has to be beautiful :-)  We toured the metro in Moscow during our trip a few years back and I found them to be more beautiful than St. Petersburg – however they are all spectacular :-)

Metro ride russia tour seven seas explorer The Metro stations in Russia are the most beautiful and deepest in the world. They have marble walls, granite flooring, chandeliers and mosaic artworks. There are trains every minute/2 minutes for the 4 million passengers daily at the St. Petersburg metro #stpetersburg #Russia#Regent25 #regentsevenseasexplorer#h2hssexplorer2017Russian Metro (2) Russian Metro (4) Russian Metro (3)  The metro stations are very deep and no one knows how deep because they are prepared to be bomb shelters.

Highlights of St Petersburg

By | Regent Seven Seas Explorer | No Comments

 Since we were only in St Petersburg for 2 days, we chose 2 tours per day.  The first day was the hermitage and the next day was the Highlights of St. Petersburg.  It’s a good thing i went to St. Petersburg already or else I would feel really “bitin” not being able to go inside the different places of interest.  We took the bus to go around the city to see the major sights Highlights of st petersburg tour regent seven seasHighlights of St Petersburg (2)Highlights of St Petersburg (12) Highlights of St Petersburg (5) Highlights of St Petersburg (4) Coffee break :-)Highlights of St Petersburg (8)  Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood which was built on top of the blood of Alexander II where he was assassinated. It has a mosaic facade and the only church which uses enamel used for jewelry on its towers.

Highlights of St Petersburg (9)  Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan. constructed between 1801 and 1811 by the architect Andrei Voronikhin, was built to an enormous scale and boasts an impressive stone colonnade, encircling a small garden and central fountain. The cathedral was inspired by the Basilica of St. Peter’s in Rome and was intended to be the country’s main Orthodox Church. After the war of 1812 (during which Napoleon was defeated) the church became a monument to Russian victory. Captured enemy banners were put in the cathedral and the famous Russian Field Marshal Mikhail Kutuzov, who won the most important campaign of 1812, was buried inside the church.
