DK always outshines the others with their photography and illustrations. The paper is excellent but the print is too small for my eyes, smaller than the other guide books I’ve used for other locations. What was lacking was enough detail about locations (how to get there, costs, etc.), in this area Rick Steves shines, but he doesn’t cover St. Petersburg. It was adequate but hope Rick Steves provides a St Pete guide in the future.
