COVID-19 ruined many plans of millions of people all over the world. And although I prefer not focusing on negativity, this pandemic is unfortunately our current reality that people try to overcome. For instance, earlier I shared some virtual tours of Saint Petersburg museums that are a great substitute nowadays.
