Wordless Wednesday.

Our second and now obviously final visit in 2018 to St. Petersburg, Russia.

 The Lakhta Center is an 87-storey skyscraper built in the northwestern neighbourhood of Lakhta in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Standing 462 metres tall, it is the tallest building in Russia, the tallest building in Europe, and the sixteenth-tallest building in the world.

The second day we were there England were playing Croatia in the football World Cup semi finals (they lost!). We had been asked if we wanted tickets but declined, and looking at the huge queues I am very glad we did.

I am joining Sandee at Comedy Plus for the blog hop.


  1. Such a fascinating place, Russia. That is a beautiful photo.

  2. What nice photos and thanks for the information about them too interesting :-)

    Have a funtastic week Jackie 👍
    I added you to my linky no idea why it wouldn't let you 👍

  3. So beautiful and you know I'm on one of those boats. Boating is a passion.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, Jackie. Big hug. ♥

  4. That had to be something to see...once upon a time.

  5. We always love seeing your beautiful photos from your adventures. These are no exception.

  6. Soccer in England can be really dangerous if the fans get mad. We would be afraid to attend a big game there.

  7. What a special trip with amazing images. The first one is quite fictional...
    Thank you Jackie! Happy WW and a fine week! 😘❤️

  8. I love seeing all the amazing places you've been, Jackie.

    Hugs and blessings

  10. Great photos. I am at the point that I wouldn't even wait in a long line to meet Nic Cage. :) XO

  11. Very interesting that the Lahtka Center looks like a weapon of war -- a missile perhaps? It really would be a shame if it was damaged, though. It certainly is beautiful and unexpected in St. Petersburg. I know it has a great history. How fortunate you were to see it before the latest war.

  12. One of my biggest regrets is that I didn't visit Russia when I had the chance. That really is a stunning skyscraper.
