    This is not St. Petersburg we know. Your shots are cold and distant, with little color. Maybe that's how it shows itself to visitors. :-) Don't take it personally, this is not a criticism of your shots. They are very nice - and are, in fact, representative of the typically grey weather. This is a reflection on life and our personal memories. If you have a moment, please stop by http://public.fotki.com/OlegSokol/travels/petersburg/

    Is this some type of fortification.

    It is the Peter and Paul Fortress, which was the initial central core for Saint Petersburg

    The work in these ceilings is unbelievable.It must be a big job to keep some of these buildings maintained.
