    Default Some Saint-Petersburg walking

    So I decided to take a walk across my favorite city

    Hope you gonna like it. Here is how the Evil Totalitarian Empire looks like.


    So, I started on the Nevsky avenue.



    Soon we'll see the Fontanka river

    And go near that nice fence

    You can see a lot of artists here and buy your own portrait

    I'm not sure, but, as I remember, this is a hotel

    And here you can buy some paintings (and order a portrait as well)

    Main Headquarters Arc

    Ermitage


    Ermitage and Arc are builded on the Temple square.

    That colomn there is an Alexandes's Colomn. Made to honor the victory over Napoleon.


    And when I get there, there was two guys playing guitars, so I stayed there for about 2 hours. Maybe I'll show you some videos, it was fun

    Beautiful city!
    “… the greatest detractor from high performance is fear: fear that you are not prepared, fear that you are in over your head, fear that you are not worthy, and ultimately, fear of failure. If you can eliminate that fear—not through arrogance or just wishing difficulties away, but through hard work and preparation—you will put yourself in an incredibly powerful position to take on the challenges you face" - Pete Carroll.
