Originally founded by Peter the Great in 1714 Sestroretsk is a seaside resort town known for its sandy beach on the Gulf of Finland but today with Anna it was not sand we saw but snow as she walked on the frozen Gulf of Finland !

As she walked to the beach area we passed early 20th-century wooden dachas in the art nouveau style.

It was such a beautiful tour, filled with all the information that we are used to receiving from Anna.

During these difficult times it was so lovely to be sharing this beautiful walk with Anna and to hear her shrieks of laughter as a kite ice skater wanted to get close.

Hi - thanks for sharing. A quick (and somewhat impolite) question: with your virtual guide being Russia-based, how do you pay for the tours? With foreign currency transfers recently restricted, I'm having a bit of a hard time figuring out ways of sending money there if need be.
