We have booked two nights in a hotel in St Petersburg before a river cruise. We arrive on 2nd May next year and will be transferred to the boat on the 4th May.
A search of the net tells me that the 1st and 2nd May are public holidays in Russia. As those days are a Tuesday and Wednesday next year, will the whole week be fairly busy with Russian people extending their break?
The main day we will have free is the Thursday and I see that the Hermitage gets very busy on the first Thursday of each month, Does this apply to other places, such as the Faberge museum and the Russian Museum?
