St. Petersburg pt 3 (Divo Ostrov)

September 16, 2014

On our second to last day in SP, we took the metro over to Yelagin Island. I had read there was a nice park there so we decided to check it out. After wandering around and exploring all there was to see, crossing bridges here and there from little island to little island, scoring cans of free Nestea that were being handed out, and trying an eclair from a little food truck (um…my fault for thinking it would taste at all like the eclairs I love to eat around Europe. It did not), we headed back towards the metro and decided to check out a little amusement park we’d seen right across from the metro.  Divo Ostrov (Wonder Island) on Krestovsky Island was such a fun little surprise. I think they are ripping off the Disney lettering in their sign:

It was such a cute little place though, and the kids there seemed to be having fun =)

This sign says “hot burger with ice cream, 90 rubles.” (about 3 dollars)
