Having our breakfast in the deserted hostel we decided to organise our bus onwards to Tallinn, Estonia. Jumping on the ever efficient Metro we headed across town to the Eurolines ticket office.

With our tickets in hand we then got the Metro to the Peter and Paul Fortress. Inside the fortress we saw the Museum of Astronautics and Rocket Technology including a model of the first satellite, Sputnik and the architectural displays in the Engineer's House. The Boat House was a bit of a let down as it's basically a gift shop with an old boat in the middle. The St Peter's and St Paul's Cathedral was very ornate but we enjoyed the exhibition The History of St. Petersburg in the old Commandant's House

After hours of wandering through the museum and being watched we walked across Troitsky Most bridge over the frozen river and through Mars Field. With the sun already set we headed to Pizza.ru for dinner.
