    • Anyone know current Aeroflot baggage allowances? Dont trust website...

      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

    • Opera at Mariinsky or Ballet Mikhailovsky Theatre

      Saint Petersburg Aug 16, 2014 at 9:59 AM

      I have never been to the ballet nor opera but would like to try when in Russia. As I understand Mariinsky is the most beautiful and impressive theatre but when I am in St Petersburg they are showing opera not ballet. It makes sense to see ballet when in Russia rather than opera but Mariinsky is more beautiful.
      What would you recommend for someone who has never seen ballet nor opera and only been to the theatre a few time. I'm not very 'artsy'.
      Many thanks in advance

      Is the metro working at this time? Is it safe? Will I be able to arrive on time to Finland Station?

      Hello. I am planning to travel to Saint Petersburg for the first time this September. I am traveling by myself and am looking for guided tours to join that go to different sights in the city as well as tours that take day trips to Peterhof or Pushkin. I want to find tours that are already scheduled that I can join. All that I have found so far are tours with companies that would charge a lot just for me with no one else on the tour.

      Thanks for any suggestions.

Frankly we are very concerned about what we might face when we get there given all that is happening ..... Should we be worried? Our consulate website basically says nothing except that they have limited services now. (They closed the St. Petersburg branch)
      Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    • Weather, tour operators

      Saint Petersburg Mar 7, 2014 at 4:04 PM

      We'll be arriving by cruise ship on 05/27-05/28/14. Typically will I need a down coat & boots or is it usually rainy in May? We want to arrange an intensive 2 day group tour of St Petersburg & an evening ballet performance independently of the cruise ship. Many of these tour operators provide group tours with less than 20 people, which is very appealing. My difficulty is finding a tour operator that offers the 2 day tour linked with the evening ballet performance, because the playbills for the ballets are NOT released until 1 month prior to the performances. Any suggestions about making our preferred arrangements would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
