regardless, thanks for sharing all this. i must, must go there one day.

and seriously, about the ghosts, it's gotta be haunted. tell more stories! more more more selo! :lamewink:
I meant the Hermitage stands on the Neva and yeah,the Neva's
indeed connected to the Gulf of Finland - btw have you been to Peterhof or Lomonosov? You can get the most spectacular view
of the Gulf there,especially at dawn.
And I know lots of stories,gotta save 'em till you come here one day

no sorry, it's not bono.

it's 'europe' from the film 'russian ark', a movie based entirely in the hermitage.

Your welcome! I loved St. Petersburg when I was there. I had wanted to go since I about 9 and read a book about Anastasia. My dad was invited to a conference there, so we all decided to go and I absolutely loved it. There's just something that pulled me in and made me want to go back. I have also gotten into Russian Literature since I came home. The view of the Bay of Finland was gorgeous from Peterhof.

I couldn't see the person's face that well which is why I thought it was Bono

yeah...i don't think cyrillic is really that scary...

arabic...now that scares me.

and the sea is right outside the hermitage anyway, it's not like they just put it there for extra effect.

so in other words, love it like i do.
It was the whole 'Ark' thing. Trite, floating etc.

But like I said, seeing more of it and the costumes...my God they were incredible!


thanks aine!

That's interesting! Did you visit any other places in Russia apart from St.Peter's? And which Russian writers do you like?

It's my pleasure! Angela,are you specifically interested in Russian costumes or the history of costumes/fashion in general?

It was previously the artworks housed in the Hermitage that held all of my interest. Mum and I were out shopping a couple of months ago and I saw this 6 dvd set which documents and categorises all the major aspects of the paintings and sculptures held within it. To my surprise, Santa left it for me under the tree and since then my interest in the Hermitage has only grown. Bear recommended the film which I then hired out, and that has since piqued a great interest now in the costumes shown! They were just stunning. I'm guessing they were very authentic, though due to the mobile nature of 'Russian Ark' it was hard at times to get a good look at them all. The history of Russian costumes is something I think I would like to learn more of, but I've always appreciated at least, various forms of dress through cultures in the past.
