ST. PETERSBURG : A Queen in Russia

October 18, 1994

Afour-day visit to Russia by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, ends here Thursday with a trip to the old imperial capital of St. Petersburg in the company of Russian President Boris N. Yeltsin.

The queen arrived in Moscow on Monday and attended a performance that night of the Bolshoi ballet. The royal visit was a rare look at monarchical trappings for Russians, who deposed their own royalty, the 300-year-old Romanov dynasty, in the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution.
