Travel Diary: 3 Days in St. Petersburg

Travel Diary: St. Petersburg
Guys, I can finally share with you all the images from my St. Petersburg trip! As you may know, I've gone on this trip with my friend (who also happened to be an amazing photographer), and we definitely shot way to many pictures! I mean, there's no such thing as too many pictures, right?

We only had 3 days, so we tried to make the most of them. We created a little program for ourselves with the places we definitely wanna visit. And I gotta say, we marked off our list pretty much all of them. I'll leave a list down below with some of the best, that you should definitely visit, if you're ever in St. Petersburg.

Overall, I'm really happy that we got to have this girl's trip. We walked like 20km every day, took a bunch of photographs and found some amazing coffee spots.

Here are the list of the best spots in St. Petersburg:

Au Pont Rouge
{Au Pont Rouge}

Au Pont Rouge is one of the first department stores built in the world. Founded in 1907, it was reopened after 108 years in 2015.

I've literally been fascinated by this place. The design elements inside this building are so on point!

{The Saint Petersburg Mosque}

The Great Mosque of St. Petersburg is the biggest Mosque in the European part of Russia. The building was constructed in 1909-1920 by the architect Nikolai Vasilyev, also involving the engineer S. Krichinsky and the architect A. von Gauguin. Its construction in 1913 was dedicated to the tercentenary of the Romanov house. However, it took another seven years to finish the work on the interior decoration of the temple. The St. Petersburg Mosque is one of the largest in Europe - it can accommodate up to 5,000 people.
