A Place to Hang Your Hat, Part 2

Home in Russia was a furnished 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom flat on Nevsky Street, the main avenue of St Petersburg. It was a fantastic location. It took me just five minutes to walk to work. Living in a central location also meant being able to walk to St.Petersburg’s most popular landmarks, including the Russian Museum and the Church of the Resurrection on the Spilled Blood, to name but a few inspirational sites in this majestic city.

The apartment’s courtyard, shared with a bank, a tapas restaurant and lots of cats seeking shelter under the eaves and heat from the engines of the parked cars.

Nevsky Street is the main thoroughfare of St. Pete.
