    • Helicopter tour over Saint Petersburg

      Saint Petersburg Apr 10, 2015 at 11:43 AM

      Hello everyone!

      Is anyone of you interested in sharing the costs of a helicopter tour? Me and my boyfriend are going to Petersburg next week and I want to surprise him with a helicopter tour. Unfortunately, the tour is too expensive for me and I can't afford the costs all on my own (; We would fly with a 3-person helicopter, the price is always the same: 23.500 rubles (I already got an discount of 2500 rubels). That means that if I would find one more who would like to take the tour with us, the price would be about 7.840 rubles. I would really, really love to take the heli-tour, because I think it's a lifetime experience. And what's more: the ruble is currently down - that means that this tour probably will never be that "cheap" again (;

      Many thanks in advance Judith

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

      We arrive at St Petersburg airport at about 11 am, from Moscow. Our hotel is Renaissance Baltic at Pochtamtskaya Str. 4. We leave for Helsinki by the 6.40 am Allegro Train on 27th May morning.

      We would like to see the Pushkin -- Catherine's Palace (i think on 25th itself, as I believe it is closed on Tuesday the 26th). How do we go about this? Do we go directly from airport bu private van/minibus? How do we arrange van with English speaking driver or guide?

      What else can we do on this day?

      We would like to visit the Hermitage and Winter Palace, The riverfront and the opening of the bridges etc.?

      How do we capture the essence in the short time that we have? What all can we do and see? Any activities??

      How do we reach the train so early in the morning of 27th May, from hotel??

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

      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.

      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.

      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?

      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

      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!

    • 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.
