    • Anyone know current Aeroflot baggage allowances? Dont trust website...

      Moscow Dec 20, 2014 at 12:25 PM

      Hallo everyone,

      I am having an aeroflot flight and my ticket is showing: (Delhi over Moscow to Düsseldorf) In accordance with Aeroflot rules, free baggage allowance on your route is 2PC=23kg+23kg+10kg (hand luggage) (piece concept) The weight of the piece must not exceed 23 kilograms. The size of the piece must not exceed 158centimeters in 3 measurements. You can also take 1 piece of carry-on bag in cabin. Carry on weight must not exceed 10 kilograms and its size must not exceed 115 centimeters in 3 dimensions (55×40×20). I am flying first time aeroflot as allowance of luggage is 2 pieces plus hand luggage. Now I have the doubt how you weight, both together = 46kg or single separately? Do they allow any tolerance? Many thanks in advance

      Sightseeing in Kremlin and Around Red Square

      Moscow Dec 3, 2014 at 3:53 AM

      I will have a stop-over in Moscow Friday December 19th on my way to Vietnam and I will have four or five hours in central Moscow to do some sightseeing (from 11 or 12 a.m. till 4 p.m.). Transit visa has been fixed and I know how and when to get to and from the airport.

      I am mostly into architecture and my plan is to see the exterior of St Basil´s Cathedral and State House Museum. I will browse quickly at the interior of GUM and in Kreml I will go directly to the Cathedral Sq to admire the exterior of the churches and the Bell Tower. I will not enter the Bell Tower neither the Armoury.

      1. I am really into architecture as well as photography, and would like to see some of the churched from inside as well. Should I choose St Bail or any of the ones at Cathedral Sq; which are the more beautiful ones? What are the lines like to get inside? I have read that photography is not permitted inside the churches on Cathedral Sq; what about inside St Basil´s?

      2. Anything else I should not miss while being in the Kremlin/Red Sq area?

      3. Do I need to change money so I have some rubles, or can I pay entrance fees and my lunch etc with Visa? What about the airport express train and the metro?

      4. Does anyone have a restaurant in the area to recommend? I do not want to waste time searching for a restaurant. European food is preferred, but not necessarily. Should I eat inside GUM while I am there to save time? If so; which restaurant?

      Thanks from Lena

      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.
