St Petersburg was very, very cold. Thankfully, we had packed accordingly, with numerous leggings, thermals and socks. Even so, my hands did become painfully cold on a number of occasions. Taking my gloves off to sort out the camera was always a bit of a struggle!
However, I’d say it was worth it. St Petersburg was beautiful in the snow and while my photography doesn’t do it justice, it might give you a little idea of what a winter weekend in St Petersburg has to offer.
