    • 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

    • MTB and weekend bike tour

      Vladivostok 13 hours ago

      According to wiki travel (wikitravel.org/en/Vladivosto...), people love to bike to the islands on the weekend. I just wonder where I can find the bike rental in the downtown or in the islands?

      (By the way, what does the MTB stand for?)

      Thanks.

      I want to travel to Russia soon as a tourist. Does anyone know whether tourists can still use their credit/debit cards in Russia without any problems? I am a little concerned after reading about the new National Payment System they have in Russia. Has anyone had any problems while traveling there?

    • Transportation from Belorusskey train station to Marriott Grand Hotel at 26/1 Tverskaya St.

      Moscow Apr 8, 2015 at 12:16 PM

      I will be taking the Aero express to the train station and on the map the hotel appears to be over a mile from the station.

      Normally a taxi would be the way to go but there are many warnings about taking a taxi from outside the station.

      Thank you

      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.
