    • Watching football in Moscow

      by nelbo009 Online Now Aug 10, 2015 at 2:52 PM

      I am visiting Moscow at the end of August, and am interested in attending a football match while there. CSKA are at home to Anzhi on the Saturday night I am there; and Lokomotiv are at home to Krasnodar on the Sunday lunchtime. Russian football gets a lot of negative publicity here in the UK due to crowd trouble and racism - is it safe for foreign tourists to visit these matches? Which would be better? And which section of the stadium would be best/safest?

    • Good snow boots for walking around the city

      by AngieBeachBum Online Now Aug 13, 2015 at 4:28 AM

      I'm going to Moscow for the first time next year in February and need some cold weather, walking on icy streets, snow boots. I'm unsure whether I should buy boots there or try and get something here at home. I live in Australia and there isn't much need for these type of boots, so the selection isn't great. Does anyone have any suggestions where would be the best place to buy them. This is the first leg of my trip so don't want to blow the budget at the start.
      Thanks AngieBeachBum

      I will be taking a river cruise in September 2015 and I would like to buy a fur coat. I am interested in a full or 3/4 length karakul or Persian lamb. Tailoring is important to me as well as quality fur. Do you recommend a reliable merchant and what should I be willing to pay?

      Passport control

      by popsottery Online Now Jul 6, 2015 at 9:48 PM

      We have just travelled from Lithuania to Moscow via Minsk.
      We had an early morning train to Minsk, spent all day there (great place) then caught a late overnight train to Moscow.
      On the train to Minsk we went through passport control at Vilnius station then had passports checked and stamped on train at Belarus border, along with immigration card.
      Went to sleep on night train (Minsk to Moscow) and woke up in Moscow. So no passport control from Belarus to Russia. Is this correct? We have no stamp on the visa/passport saying we entered Russia.

      I would like to ask those who have been to Moscow or those who have lived or who are currently living in Moscow (I am emphasizing these so I do not get a copy and paste answer from those who have not been to Moscow at all): Could you give me some hints where I could take great photos of Moscow´s landmarks? 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).

      2 full days in Moscow

      by sandeepgarg Online Now 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.

      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

      by mogaly Online Now 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.

      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
