At the end of September 2003 I went with my IOOF Oddfellow logde for a 5 day visit to St. Petersburg in Russia. I think this is maybe one of the most beutiful citys that I have visited, so I wanted to show you some of the 313 photos I took during this trip. As there is some time since I was there my memory is not so good about the places that we visited so I would like to refer you to the website http://www.travel.spb.ru where I got a lot of information to put in the text, but there you can also find more information if you are interested. In 2003 St. Petersburg celebrated itīs 300th aniversity.
