At the St Peter & St Paul Fortress Church.

                                      Even on the outside there is gilding and ornamentation.
                                                This is a particularly elegant dome I think.
                                                    Inside is gilt and glitter everywhere.
               This is the tomb of Peter the Great with his bust at the foot of it behind the flowers.
These colours are so soft and pretty, much nicer than the hard edge of gold on all the other surfaces.
