After breakfast we departed on a coach tour of St Petersburg with our local guide, taking in the sights at St Issacs, the Admiralty building overlooking the Neva River and Kazan Cathedral.
We then visited the Peter and Paul Cathedral and Fortress, which included the tombs of the Tzars. After that the students were given some free time to explore and have lunch on the Nevsky Prospect.
In the afternoon, we visited the Yusupov Palace, the site of the Rasputin's assassination in 1916. After a delicious dinner in the Hotel restaurant, students participated in a team based quiz and competed for fabulous prizes!
