Finally I’ve jumped into the huge city – St Petersburg, you’ve got me! 

Cycling day 15/105 km

Starting in the morning in Gurlewo it was – as usual – a cloudy sky above me and I began my last cycling day…

A great breakfast prepared by an english speaking guy from Usbekistan made me ready to take these last 95 km – even at 11 Degrees C and sometimes wind from the front.

So on this trip there weren’t so many highlights but an old castle which was more or even less restaurated – the entrance fee was as high as a coffee at the station in St Petersburg… 

And the roads weren’t that bad – of course there are lots of big wholes in the street but even with a recumbent and a trailer it was no problem to get through – just to mention that as there were some stories on blogs and from other travelers… 

I’ve enjoyed cycling a last time even in the full rainclothes and the trip went by on my mind. Around tea time I’ve arrived at the old station of Peterhof and had to wait for nearly an hour. There I’ve get to know to an russian guy who is working for an internet magazine and I’ve told him about couchsurfing. 

And than, the time went by quickly, we arrived in…St Petersburg, my final destination! 

I got my stuff into the fifth floor to my hostel at the Newski Prospect and jumped into the street to get some good food! 

And of course I found an vegetarian one by coincidence – surprise, surprise!  😀 

So here you’ve got some impressions from this huge city – cycling through the chaos wasn’t that difficult than in Rome – nice surprise! 

So good night from Russia – looking forward to explore this marvelous city the next days…
