      Russian Visa

      Russia Mar 25, 2015 at 4:17 AM

      We are 4 people that intend to travel through Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and into Russia (St Petersburg and onto Moscow). Could anyone advise me on the best way to obtain a Visa for Russia. There seems to be loads of sites on the net but its difficult to tell which are genuine. We are UK citizens. I think I will also require a visa for Belarus?

    • cheap , comfortable and privacy-guaranteed train ride from Moscow to St Petersburg

      Moscow 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

    • 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!

      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.
