I made some photos. 17 of them are under this cut (image-heavy, not that good for dial-up users).
there was also a green house, but I didn't took a good picture of it.
when I was inside a church, one of them helped me with a candle (it was too big for those candle-holders, so he melted it for awile and then put it in firmly. it was very nice of him)
oh, and it was terribly cold there. mostly because of the winds. it's a hermitage after all.
until our guide told us not to take pictures inside, I made this shot.
blurry, but at least you can see what was inside one of those churches.
some of the buildings remind me of 18th century russian novels ;)
it's quite friendly place, by the way.
not the best shot. I can see that it's falling of the left, but I had to take most of my shots in a hurry - we were in a group and we had to follow our guide guickly.
pretty, isn't it?
there was a forest nearby. dark and gloomy. loved it.
there were lots of fat cats and some dogs there. lovely :))
that's all. hope you enjoyed this small virtual tour ;))
