Tallinn to St Petersburg, Russia

Russia is bigger than Pluto, so it’s understandable that today’s drive is pretty epic. Say Zdravstvujtye (zdrah-stvooy-tee = hello) as we arrive in St Petersburg in time to scope out the Venice of the North on a driving tour. The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood is awesome in all its domed and glittery glory.

St Basil's Cathedral in winter blows all those Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales out of the water.
