    • 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

      Murmansk to Saint Petersburg May 2014

      by MarkAS2013 Online Now Aug 27, 2013 at 6:06 PM

      I am hoping to find suitable tours for Northern Russia.

      I arrive in Kirkenes Norway on 5th May 2014 and wish to be in Saint Petersburg by 16th May 2014. I understand that I will need to travel from Kirkenes to Murmansk by bus.

      I am seeking any information regarding tours in the region of Russia from Murmansk to Saint Petersburg preferably by train
      I am seeking assistance with not only stopovers and sites to see, but also the support of English-speaking guides in the recommended locations, purchase of tickets and (budget) accommodation. I will be travelling alone.
      I welcome any suggestions you might make.
      Regards
      Mark

    • What tour to take while in Murmansk for 1 day?

      by Jean2010 Online Now Apr 6, 2011 at 6:57 AM

      We arrive on Sunday, June 19th.
      Since we will only have a group Visa, we must take one of the 5 ship tours, or sign up for an individual guided tour which will be very expensive I'm afraid. (They are not posted yet.)
      My husband is interested in the nuclear ice-breaker and ship museum.
      But I'm afraid we will not see much else.
      If we take that tour, will we get to at least drive through the city, or is the museum and ice-breaker near where the cruise ship docks?
      I'd like to do a little shopping too - would anything be open on Sunday?
      Thoughts please!

    • Day Trip in Murmansk -Arriving by Cruise Ship

      by jeana-r Online Now Apr 21, 2009 at 7:11 AM

      Hi,
      Will be stopping in Murmansk this summer on a cruise ship, and want to see a little of the city. Since I work on the ship, I am not certain I will get a tour so I need to plan an independent one. Can anyone tell me how easy difficult it will be to get around from the ship terminal; I realize I will have to get a visa but I am wondering if there are local (English speaking) tour operators who can provide a day tour with a blanket visa and what I might be able to see either with them or on my own.
      Many thanks.

      Hi. Me and a friend are planning on taking the Trans-siberian express ending in Moscow this winter. From there we hope to go to Murmansk. From there to Finland before flying home. Does anybody know the best/easiest way to get to Murmansk from Moscow and the best/easiest from Murmansk to Finland. Both journeys will be in December.

      Also if anyone has any ideas how to get from northern Finland to the U.K. cheaply and easily this will be VERY helpful!

      Thanks for your help!

      Hi, Any info. on Murmansk as a place to visit for 4/5 days in the month of either May or June? I`m thinking of visiting there next year and would like to know if its worth the stop.I can only select a maximum of 6 cities on my Visa, so i want to check out each one before hand. Is Murmansk safe for lone backpackers? Would it be too cold to do outdoor exploring in late April/Early May? Any info.or strange tales appreciated. Thanks.
