      2 full days in Moscow

      Moscow Apr 29, 2015 at 8:29 PM

      We are 9 of a family, including 1 Sr. Citizen 74 years, and 4 children (11, 12, 14, 18 year old).

      Arrive in Moscow on 22-May. 5 of us arrive at hotel Marriott Moscow Grand at around 4 pm, the rest will arrive around 9 pm.

      We are there for the next 2 days, 23 and 24 May.

      What should we do? How do we hire a minibus / van with ENGLISH speaking guide or driver? Where all must one visit to get an essence of the city, its culture and history?

      We would like to visit the AK-47 shooting range. Are the children allowed?

      Can we combine Kremlin, Red Square, St Basil's on 23rd may? What else? Arbat?

      The circus can be kept for the 24th evening. What else can we do on that day?

      What can the 5 of us do near our hotel on 22nd evening, after checking in? (Marriott Moscow Grand, on Tverskaya Street)

      How do all of us go to Vnukovo Airport on 25th morning 9.30 flight to St. Petersburg? Will the metro be a better option or a van?

      I know that these are a lot of questions, but please do help.

      Thanks in advance.

I will be there for only 3 nights and that is why I could really use some tips. Please do not give me tips like hire a professional photographer or some other tips that I could come up myself (sorry if I am being straightforward but I am really discouraging tips that will turn me off because I seldom ask for tips. thank you).

      Moscow Apr 26, 2015 at 5:23 AM

      Hi...i want to know that given the current currency crisis in Russia, how has it effected the day to day prices in Moscow.

      I am planning to travel with my wife and 12 year old son in June and would like to stay in a decent 3 star property and do the normal touristy things, have an un-rushed feel of the city, sit out cafe type lunch and some walk around sight seeing in the late afternoon / evening.

      Then we plan to go to St. Petersburg by high speed train

      How much should be budget per day in dollars per head? We so not plan to eat at fancy places or stay at fancy places but would like to visit the touristy cathedrals/spots, etc. So not a budget travel but not too expensive too

      What kind of costs for such a normal holiday? Any insights will be appreciated.

    • cheap , comfortable and privacy-guaranteed train ride from Moscow to St Petersburg

      Moscow Mar 20, 2015 at 2:39 PM

      Hello friends ,

      I'd appreciate your kind help.

      I'll be travelling with a company of 20 family members and friends from Moscow To St Petersburg on August 05 . Most of my group are senior couples above 60 years of age . We're travelling on a strict budget , that's why we thought the overnight trains might be the cheapest option . However, we have real concerns that the night train ride might turn out too wearisome and exhausting for our old age to sustain , especially that our lively tourist program would start right after we arrive in St.Petersburg . We want to make sure that the train would allow us a good night's sleep and , no less important , keep our privacy ( i.e. a closed compartment with comfortable 2 bed for each couple ).

      I'd appreciate your recommendation for a cheap , comfortable and privacy- guaranteed overnight train ride between the two capitals .

      Thank you very much

      After a long flight from California I could either have a car waiting for me or take Aeroexpress. Considering the amount of traffic in Moscow it would appear to be quicker to take the express then a taxi from Belorussky Rail station.

      Moscow Dec 20, 2014 at 12:25 PM

      Hallo everyone,

      I am having an aeroflot flight and my ticket is showing: (Delhi over Moscow to Düsseldorf) In accordance with Aeroflot rules, free baggage allowance on your route is 2PC=23kg+23kg+10kg (hand luggage) (piece concept) The weight of the piece must not exceed 23 kilograms. The size of the piece must not exceed 158centimeters in 3 measurements. You can also take 1 piece of carry-on bag in cabin. Carry on weight must not exceed 10 kilograms and its size must not exceed 115 centimeters in 3 dimensions (55×40×20). I am flying first time aeroflot as allowance of luggage is 2 pieces plus hand luggage. Now I have the doubt how you weight, both together = 46kg or single separately? Do they allow any tolerance? Many thanks in advance

      Sightseeing in Kremlin and Around Red Square

      Moscow Dec 3, 2014 at 3:53 AM

      I will have a stop-over in Moscow Friday December 19th on my way to Vietnam and I will have four or five hours in central Moscow to do some sightseeing (from 11 or 12 a.m. till 4 p.m.). Transit visa has been fixed and I know how and when to get to and from the airport.

      I am mostly into architecture and my plan is to see the exterior of St Basil´s Cathedral and State House Museum. I will browse quickly at the interior of GUM and in Kreml I will go directly to the Cathedral Sq to admire the exterior of the churches and the Bell Tower. I will not enter the Bell Tower neither the Armoury.

      1. I am really into architecture as well as photography, and would like to see some of the churched from inside as well. Should I choose St Bail or any of the ones at Cathedral Sq; which are the more beautiful ones? What are the lines like to get inside? I have read that photography is not permitted inside the churches on Cathedral Sq; what about inside St Basil´s?

      2. Anything else I should not miss while being in the Kremlin/Red Sq area?

      3. Do I need to change money so I have some rubles, or can I pay entrance fees and my lunch etc with Visa? What about the airport express train and the metro?

      4. Does anyone have a restaurant in the area to recommend? I do not want to waste time searching for a restaurant. European food is preferred, but not necessarily. Should I eat inside GUM while I am there to save time? If so; which restaurant?

      Thanks from Lena

      From SVO to Central Moscow and Back

      Moscow Sep 28, 2014 at 6:27 AM

      I will have a 15 hours stopover in Moscow on my way to Vietnam. I will land at 5 a.m. and leave again at 8 p.m. I have booked a hotel in the area Pokrovaka in central Moscow and am about to order the invitation letter ($39) from the hotel so I can apply for a tourist visa. My plan is to sleep in my room till 11 a.m. and then do sightseeing until I have to leave for SVO again.

      1. What is the best and cheapest way to get from SVO to central Moscow that early morning? I do not want to spend a fortune on taxi (googled and saw something saying fixed price €39, which I am not really keen on paying). I see the Aeroexpress leaves SVO from 5 a.m. in the morning till Belorussky. But how do I get from Belorussky to Pokrovaka? My hotel says it is located close to Kursky railway station and Chkalovskaya and Kurskaya metro stations.

      2. And what time should I go back to SVO (it is a Friday) to catch my 8 p.m. flight. I will leave from the area around Kreml etc, how do I get to Belorussky from there?

      Thanks from Lena
