St. Petersburg, Russia. Ugliest waterway entrance I've ever seen, but beautiful architecture once you're into the old city. I'm going to have vodka and caviar for lunch. I think that's what the natives do here.

Caviar makes up for a lot of ugly. St. Petersburg is on our wish list for next summer.
I loved St. Petersburg when I was there about 10 yr ago. Agree with Seaquam about the architecture. And there's a shabbiness that I like...sort of like tarnished silver. The beauty is there to be seen, but it needs some polishing. On the other hand, the "tarnish" is beautiful in its own way. There are some wonderful gardens there, too.
