Lightning round-esque blog posting about to happen. These posts have been bugging me (in the best way possible) since I arrived back in Helsinki from Russia. Since that time, I’ve been to three different countries and I have loads else to write about. So I can’t wait to get these pictures up. Also, I want you to see them! So here they are (finally).
In contrast to Catherine’s Palace, I don’t really know anything about the St. Petersburg metro system — except that they’re beautiful. I read that they were made to cheer up Russian citizens during the time of the Soviet Union, though I don’t know if that’s exactly true. It makes sense though! They were simply the most amazing metro stations that I’ve ever been to, and I can see why they’re world-renowned. I talked about them a bit more here, so if you haven’t read up on it yet, check it out.
Unlike the dedicated Catherine’s Palace post, I don’t think I’ll caption most of these pictures. I don’t really know what to caption other than “Beautiful!” or “Wonderful mosaics!” so they might just speak for themselves. I didn’t take a tour specifically about the metros, so I have next to no info to pass on. Just the pictures, so I hope that they will suffice!

That’s it for the Metro Tour! I may try to get one more up tonight — just to get these Russia posts off of my plate. I loved ya Russia, but it’s time for me to do some writing on the other places I’ve visited! Hope you enjoyed the pictures (and don’t worry, it’s ok if you enjoyed the ones without captions a little less). I’ll try to not be so lazy and actually get some other posts up soon.
But here’s your teaser of what’s to come: Copenhagen, Sweden (if only briefly), Estonia, and the Finnish Lapland! And to give you an idea of how behind I am…I’m in Lapland writing this now so…bear with me here. I visited Copenhagen, Sweden, and Estonia all within the last week, so there’s my excuse. And I am going to school, so I guess that’s valid too. But anyways, expect more stuff soon. Thanks!
