You are so helpful, could you please advise on the following.
1.Arrive StP, by train from Helsinki on July 9th.We[ two active 60+ year olds] will be staying at either the Pribaltiskaja or Pulkovskava hotel[ not yet confirmed]. What would be the best way to get from the train station to either of these hotels?[ we will have 2 suitcases]
2. July 9th and 10th are free days in St P.
What would be your suggestions for sights to see[ first time visitors]
Would it be viable to take a day trip outside of St P.?[ I was thinking of Pushkin ]
3. July 11th free until time to embark on cruise ship.[ about 6pm I think ]
4. What is the best way to get to the port [ don't know the name of it ]from either of the hotels?
5.What is the weather normally like at this time of year?
6.Breakfast is included at hotel. In your opinion, how much would we need in rubles for our stay--for meals, entrance fees,taxis, few souvenirs etc-- I know this is difficult but a rough estimation would be fine]
7. We will also need rubles for the cruise--I believe credit cards are not accepted on the cruise.
Thank you for your kind and valuable assistance.
