St. Petersberg Russia

I am 11 and I would like to know the best tourist site in the city St. Petersberg. I liked the the Church of Spilled Blood the most but plan on going back and wonder what I should see next time.

"Best tourist site" is in the eyes of the beholder. Read a guide book on St. Petersburg and decicde what you would like to see based on their description and recommendation.

Besides the Hermitage and the State Russian Museum (two of the world's great museums), there is the small Museum of Hygeine, mostly for children. What is interesting for adults is a display that includes one of Dr. Pavlov's dogs (ask your parents about "Pavlovian Response").

Here's a picture of me (during an unbearded year) with the dog:

Another impressive church in St. Petersburg - St. Isaac's cathedral, it is the biggest church in Russia.
The beautiful palaces in the suburbs of St. Petersburg - in Tsarskoye Selo (Pushkin), Pavlovsk and Peterhof.
Among the museums, more interesting for children are the Zoological museum, the central Navy museum, the Artillery museum, the railroad museum. My children like the Kuntskammer a lot (the very first museum in Russia, founded by Peter the Great).

I have a picture of myself with Pavlov's Dog as well. No one here actually believes me that it is THE dog.

After the odd assortment of diseased organs, mummified remains and pickeled fetuses in jars at the Museum of Hygiene I needed a couple stiff drinks. There is a great and historic bar down the street that was I think called The Stray Dog? Had an absinthe there and a couple vodkas.

What would Pushkin say?

How lucky to be 11 and already a world travler. I am 62 and going to Russia for the first time in August. We will be celebrating our birthdays, 69, 63(2) and 65.

You should take a boat and go to Peterhof, very nice in the summer, lots of water fountains, even some for children to play and get wet...
