Day 10, 09.06.2017, St. Petersburg

Morning Drive to down town:

Evening drive towards Peterhof:

I did not stay at the Hotel, but in the road behind it.

As I mentioned a couple of times I had no functioning navigation and it took me all morning to find a place near the center of St. Petersburg and parked my motor-home in a parallel road of a main avenue and started to walk around and found an orthodox Church under renovation…

Decided to try the subways and explore where the Eremitage could be. Again weak preparations, lessons learned. Did not understand the process to buy a ticket and find directions in the subway. A young Russian gentlemen saw my misery and helped me to get the travel card which must be loaded with money. He said he is going to the maritime museum and I asked to join him as it was far too late for the Eremitage anyway. He agreed and we had a jolly good time walking to museum, inside and walking back.

On the way back I cought a glimpse to the famous Museum.

Miraculously I found my parked motor-home after using the subway back and drove towards the west to Peterhof which I wanted to visit next day. From the main street I always check the side roads to find other motor-home travelers and I was lucky once again near the Samson Hotel.

Day 9, 08.06.2017, Tallinn – St. Petersburg

Route Map: 385 km

Summary: Very good road network to St. Petersburg, dull weather, acceptable border process, indicated parking site was abandoned.

For parking site was abandoned I looked for a spot near Peterhof.

Found a quiet Cul de sac with a small security hut including a watchman. I asked him in English and with hand and feet whether I could park for one night. He agreed without hesitation. Later I found out I was in fine company in between the two buildings Konstantinovskiy Dvorets and Dacha Lindstrema.
