Hey, guys) I also wanted to share with you my experience in traveling alone. Once I had a solo trip for a week to St.Petersburg. It was quite scary at first, to be honest, I don't know language, and you know all these stories about crazy Russians. But I thought that one week in St. Petersburg will be more exiting than typical trip through Europe, and I was right)
During the days I have visited a lot of sightseeing places, like Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, Hermitage, St. Isaac's Cathedral State Museum, St. Isaac's Cathedral State Museum etc (you can look it up in tripadvisor).But what is more important – I can definitely say, that citizens there are really-really friendly, I didn't even had any troubles like where to have a lunch or how to get somewhere cause each person that I asked was kindly replying me (even if this person doesn't speak english very well). So, if you are still thinking whether to go to St.Petersburg or not, I can clearly say – GO! Even if you travel alone, it is not a problem to find friends among russians. I guess, I didn't even spent one evening alone, I always had a company for dinner)
In addition, I can say, that st.petersburg is also suitable for nightlife-addicted tourists. There a lot of cozy bars with good beer and vodka, like Siniy Pushkin, Tcvetochki (good cocktail-menu), Sidreria on Mokhovaya (good choice of beer and cider), and for those, who loves smth more exotic Zavist (pr Zavyst, i am not sure) with interesting erotic show)
To sum up, I can say that after this trip I had changed my opinion about solo traveling. You just need to plan your route and feel free to find new friends, who can help you) And St.Petersbutg is full of kind people, so don't be scared and add this city in you "must visit" list. Good luck!
