Russia. Church of the Spilt Blood in St. Petersburg. Amazing. Visited in '08.This city is more European than anything. It looks a lot like Venice with its canals, and similar architecture. This is one country I'm glad we got a tour guide. Otherwise, we would have spent all 5 days lost. As it was, we got lost on the only afternoon on our own. The signs aren't in English and are very confusing. We went to a Russian Fast Food joint and I had to flap my arms to show them I wanted chicken wings!
