    • 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

      Dear all,

      I will be arriving in Petro on the 3rd of September all the way from Manchester in England, tho I am originally from Spain! Anyway, I am going to be living there for 4 months! as part of an exchange programme with the university of Petrozavodsk and I do need advice about the city. I do not know yet where I am going to be living, but it is going to be with a Karelian family! I am exited and scared at the same time. First time in Russia, as well. My intentions are not to speak any word of English nor Spanish hehehe xD and to make the most out of my experience there before moving for 6 more months to Yaroslavl. Thanks a lot! Miz

      Sailing trips on lake

      by baltic_2005 Online Now Aug 9, 2008 at 3:48 AM

      Hi,

      Am planning to stop off a Petrozavodsk, just about 2 days, I wondered if any tour company organises sailing trips (sail boat rather than power) on the lake? I plan to be there later this month (August)?

      Also any recommendation for a economical (but reasonable) hotel / hostel would be appreciated.

      Regards from London,
