      I'm trying to buy a St Petersburg to Moscow train ticket using rdz.ru The site takes me through the reservation and the payment with no problems (I've created a log-in profile) but after I've completed the payment bit, including the security verification, it declines the transaction.

      I'm in the UK, using a Visa debit card.

      Has anyone else here had similar problems?

    • Worried about visit to St. Petersburg in May

      Saint Petersburg Mar 26, 2014 at 2:23 PM

      Going to St. Petersburg in May (2014). We are Canadian, in our 60's and going on our own for 5 days. Already have our VISA. Coming in from Helsinki on train. Frankly we are very concerned about what we might face when we get there given all that is happening ..... Should we be worried? Our consulate website basically says nothing except that they have limited services now. (They closed the St. Petersburg branch)
      Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    • Omsk, a nice place to learn Russian?

      by Mirzad Online Now Sep 8, 2013 at 1:31 PM

      Hello everyone

      I'm planning to head up to Russia after several weeks in Kirghizistan and Kazakstan to learn some Russian. I could do so in Omsk by integrating the Russian course for foreigners at the University. However I found so far little info on the city of Omsk itself: How welcoming is the city, if there is much going on culturalwise, how open are locals to foreigners, in short is Omsk is an optimal destination to settle down for a month or so and get the pulse of real Russia if I can say.

      thanks for your tips!
      Cheers

His father was Henry and mother Amelia. They were Germans settled around the eastern shadow of the Ural moutains, not too far from the Irtysh river. Any help is appreciated.

      by Londonin2012 Online Now Dec 5, 2005 at 5:15 PM

      I plan to visit Omsk in the second week of January 2006. Various websites and discussion groups mention prices around20 night. But, after hours of searching, I can only find three hotels (Tourist, Molodyozhnaya and Omsk) all quoting rates around80-90. But then, none seems to be available in January! Do they close when the weather gets cold? Has anyone in Omsk got any ideas about where to stay - (closer to20 than90) and available?
      Thanks
