St. Petersburg, Russia!
Привет! Welcome to The Mike Show because this week’s show is all about RUSSIA! St. Petersburg specifically… Hear stories from Mike about the history of Russia and his experiences living there for two years, as well as our favorite can’t-miss historical sights, good food to eat, and an interview with our friend Chaun at 22 Footprints about when she and her little family lived in St. Petersburg for a summer!
Questions? Suggestions? Call (641) 715-3900!
The apartment where we stayed when we were there (thank you Tatiana!!)
Russian Ballet in St. Petersburg. Heavenly. And make sure you go to the Mariinsky I NOT the Mariinsky II.
