An early start has us leaving St PETERSBURG on the fast train to HELSINKI where we inspect “THE SIBELIUS MONUMENT & THE STUNNING CHURCH OF THE ROCK”, followed by our departure to STOCKHOLM on the SILJA SYMPHONY overnight ferry.
Yesterday was magical seeing the incredible CATHERINE PALACE, TODAY has been just as exciting, but in a different kind of way. THE PALACE of PETERHOF was a mirror image of sheer fantasy in SUMPTUOUSNESS, OPULENCE & BRILLIANCE in design.
Intimately, the beauty in this masterpiece has been meticulously reassembled. The GERMANS raised it to the ground, by bombing it, when they left. We take the greatest pleasure in presenting to you, “THE CATHERINE PALACE”. Please enjoy this gilded beauty of sheer perfection.
