Despite freezing temperatures in the middle of April, Saint Petersburg is a place to go, at least once in a lifetime. The reminiscences of Soviet communism are impressive and make us travel back in time, the metro experience is a great taste of those idealistic and misunderstood times. While sightseeing through this Russian city, it's impossible not to surrender to the beauty of its architecture, churches and of course the famous Hermitage and the Winter Palace, stormed by the Bolsheviks exactly 100 years ago during the Russian Revolution. So much History is at the core of this city that makes one become introspective and cogitating of what has been and what will be.
