Alexander Nevsky Cathedral Tallinn Estonia

Tallinn Estonia Alexander Nevsky Cathedral
Built between 1894 and 1900,
the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral
is one of Tallinn’s most impressive sites.

Saint Petersburg Cityview Russia

Saint Petersburg Cityview Russia
Although Saint Petersburg is billed as the most
European of Russian cities,
English is not commonly used by locals.
Combine that with strict Visa requirements
and not many tourists explore Saint Petersburg
without a tour group.
That means solo travelers should budget more time to get around
and a lot of patience when asking for directions.
But it also means that the opportunities
for truly unique travel adventures
increase.
(The hubby and I had a blast).
