Visit to Kremlin then train to St Petersburg
6 Aug 2017
|Today we visited the Kremlin Armoury.
This was amazing.
2 floors filled with opulent gifts. Some given to Russia. Some made by the Kremlin craftsmen.
There were carriages, gold ornaments, gold table decorations, clothes from previous rulers, thrones, armour. Sadly no photos were allowed, so you have to imagine. We spent hte whole morning at the Armoury.
Since I could not take photos, here is the stairs leading out of the Kremlin Armoury
Afterwards we walked around the perimeter of the Kremlin.
Then back to our hotel.
A driver took us to the train - the fast train - to St Petersburg.
A smooth ride saw us arrive in St Petersburg at 7.30pm.
On to our Comfort Hotel where our room is very spacious.
Now we are heading out to find somewhere for dinner…….
