    • Watching football in Moscow

      Moscow 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?

    • Are the canals of St. Petersburg safe to walk on.

      Russia Aug 3, 2015 at 9:06 AM

      I have seen vehicles driving on the canals of St. Petersburg in old paintings (e_g http://goo.gl/wpO6nL). My question is are they safe to walk on, & if so, is it safe to use lightweight vehicles (i.e. not a car but lighter than a small car)? Are there any legal restrictions?

    • Good snow boots for walking around the city

      Moscow 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

      Safety of Dubna Russia?

      Dubna May 2, 2013 at 12:23 PM

      I will be going to Dubna for five weeks this summer and was wondering how safe it is as a whole. I am looking to do some morning running and want to make sure that this is advisable. What is crime like in the city? Are there areas to avoid, times to avoid being out alone (of course middle of the night, but otherwise). My assumption is that it is quite a safe place due to it being a scientific town with a relatively small size, but I would like to make sure before I go.

      Will running be a problem or hazardous, or will I be fine if I exercise the normal precautions used when running elsewhere?

    • Summer Skating in Dubna

      Dubna Jan 11, 2013 at 4:29 PM

      Just out of curiosity (and I hope this isn't out of place) is there an indoor ice rink in Dubna that allows for skating in the summer? Or even better a speed skating club (Конькобежный спорт/Шорт-трек)? I'll be there for a couple of months this summer and would love to keep skating in my free time :)

      Much Thanks!

    • traveling to dmitrov at the end of march 2011

      Dmitrov Mar 14, 2011 at 3:16 PM

      I would like to stay at Dmitrov at the end of this month as a supporter for the french team for the world U 18 women ice hockey champioship but all the hotel I have found on internet are full. All the hotel I'm able to find are at least at 40km from Dmitrov, but I don't know in which direction.
      As I know anybody, I would like to find another solution, so I need to know what is the frequency of the train between Moscow and Dmitrov. If it's frequent enought I could choose another city along this line, or I could stay in in an hotel in Moscow near the savelowsky railway station ?
      Or is it easy to drive a car from Moscow to Dmitrov without knowing any things in the Russian writing ?
      Or could you know what could be the price to do with taxi about 40km ?
      What are your advices ?
      Many thanks

      Moskovskaya Oblast' Jun 20, 2009 at 7:55 AM

      Hello!
      I speak and read Russian but I cannot find Russian tour-operators in Moscow. I am interested in visiting Moscow and make an excursion to the Golden Ring (Suzdal,Sergyev Posad, vladimir, etc) and Sanct Petersburg for a reasonable price,i.e. not as expensive as foreign tour operators offer.
      I would also appreciate any tips too do on my own. Which are the "musts" in Moscow and S.Petersburg that are not usually shown to tourists?
      Thanks in advance,

      accomadation (not necessariliy central)

      Moskovskaya Oblast' Mar 19, 2007 at 2:47 AM

      Hello !
      I have been checking the prices of the flats and hotels in moscow for the last few days and numbers I have seen opened new windows in my life.
      As far as I understand any sort of accomadation centaral costs a fortune. Actually I don't mind travelling with metro for 15-20 mins to reach the central district, how much do the modest flats and hotels cost around that distance from the central moscow.
      I know some russian, if anyone can advise me some websites which advertise these sort of flats instead of top-rated touristic ones i will be happy to hear.
      Thanks in advance!

Also, we have a 7 month old child and I am wondering about the availability of baby gear once we get there. Thanks.

    • SAFE FOR ASIANS?

      Moskovskaya Oblast' Oct 28, 2004 at 5:45 AM

      Q: Hello, I plan to travel to Moscow & St. Petersburg with my mom next year (around end of November). But I got freaked out a bit when I read a news article about a Vietnamese student that got attacked, and other posts in other boards that talked about racial discrimination against Asians in Russia. Some say that the unrest caused by Chechen insurgents have made some Russians jumpy and security has been tightened (notorious passport checks!) . We are hiring a private tour guide for 7 days, but the guide won't be with us 24/7, especially during the overnight trainride from St. Petersburg to Moscow. That worries me, because skinheads reportedly hang-around the metro for victims. Would it be safe for 2 chinese ladies to travel to Moscow & St. Petersburg next year? I would appreciate everyone's thoughts on this matter, especially from other Asians who have travelled to Russia.
