TRAVEL GOLDEN DESTINATIONS: Saint Peter and Paul Cathedral : Saint Petersburg, Russia
TRAVEL GOLDEN DESTINATIONS: Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt TRAVEL GOLDEN DESTINATIONS: Machu Picchu, Peru
  The first stone church in Saint Petersburg, Saint Peter and Paul Cathedral, is topped with a golden spire that reaches a dramatic height of 404 feet.  At the point, an angel - one of the most important symbols of Saint Petersburg- holds a cross. Take a relaxed boat ride along the Neva, as the gilded buildings reflect onto the river's surface. Visit the Hermitage Museum, exploring the archives sans map. Conclude the day with caviar and blinis at the Grand Hotel.
