    • DIY/Hardware store in Cheboksary

      Cheboksary May 17, 2015 at 2:59 AM

      Hi All. Can anyone point me in the right direction for a reliable hardware/DIY supplier in Cheboksary? I will be working at an event there in June however the goods we are shipping over from the UK are being sent on a carnet document meaning that we can't send consumables with the main transport. We will need things like screws, nails, adhesive tapes etc.

      Many Thanks in advance!

      Paul

      Saint Petersburg

      Saint Petersburg May 5, 2015 at 6:54 AM

      Is this workable:

      25 May Mon Day 03 : Moscow Vnukovo VKO - St. Petersburg Pulkovo LED (Taxi)–Aeroflot Rossiya SU6124 flight 09.30 – 11.00. St. Petersburg – Have driver & guide pick up directly from airport to Pushkin (1 Hr.) for Catherine Palace as per appointment time (closed on Tuesday & last Monday except for Summer, 670R, 30 min.). See the spacious airy ballroom, the “Grand Hall” or the “Hall of Lights”, with a spectacular painted ceiling, and comprises numerous distinctively decorated smaller rooms, including the reproduced Amber Room. Visiting the Imperial park, after the palace, and possibly the cute little town of Pushkin.

      Drive along the ‘Great Perspective’ famous today as Nevsky Prospect, lined with marble palaces of Russian royalty and aristocracy. Visit St. Issac’s Cathedral - the main church of the Russian Empire. Later, visit to The Peter and Paul Fortress - the original citadel of St. Petersburg, Russia, founded by Peter the Great in 1703 and built to Domenico Trezzini’s designs from 1706-1740.

      Evening at Leisure or view ‘opening of the bridges’ along Neva River cruise. OR C-189 Submarine Museum. Renaissance St. Petersburg Baltic Hotel. Pochtamtskaya Str 4 St. Petersburg - 190 000, RU. +78123804000

      26 May Tue Day 04 : St. Petersburg – Visit the Hermitage Museum (closed on Monday, 600R o18), a museum of art and culture in St. Petersburg. It is the largest and oldest museums in the world with collections comprising of nearly three million items including the largest collection of paintings in the world.

      Proceed to Peterhof (closed on Monday, 700R o18, 45 min). It is famous for its series of palaces and gardens known as the Peterhof Palace, laid out on the orders of the Russian Tsar, Peter the Great and sometimes called the ‘Russian Versailles’. Later, visit the Grand Palace entering by the ornate Ceremonial Staircase and see the Ballroom, Throne Room, the Western Chinese Study, the Drawing Room, the Imperial Suite, the Oak Study Room and the Crown Room. Visit Faberge museum.

      From there, visit Church on Spilled Blood's interior, and maybe a canal cruise to see more of the city that is harder to see on foot. We could visit the Faberge Museum and palace, or visit Peter and Paul Fortress/Cathedral because they are open later.

      Tonight, we discover traditional Russian dance and music during an elegant reception at the Russian Folklore show.

      How do we fiat all this in??

      We have to go to Pushkin directly from the airport, to be able to see. How long will that take? Can we aim for the 1 pm slot (Our flight reaches at 11 am)?

      How and where do we hire minibus/van for 9 of us (including 1person 74 year old)?

      We would need English speaking guide / Driver and van/bus on all days I think? How and where to book these at a decent rate?

      Thanks friends

      We are 9 of a family, including 1 Sr. Citizen 74 years, and 4 children (11, 12, 14, 18 year old).

      We arrive at St Petersburg airport at about 11 am, from Moscow. Our hotel is Renaissance Baltic at Pochtamtskaya Str. 4. We leave for Helsinki by the 6.40 am Allegro Train on 27th May morning.

      We would like to see the Pushkin -- Catherine's Palace (i think on 25th itself, as I believe it is closed on Tuesday the 26th). How do we go about this? Do we go directly from airport bu private van/minibus? How do we arrange van with English speaking driver or guide?

      What else can we do on this day?

      We would like to visit the Hermitage and Winter Palace, The riverfront and the opening of the bridges etc.?

      How do we capture the essence in the short time that we have? What all can we do and see? Any activities??

      How do we reach the train so early in the morning of 27th May, from hotel??

      I know that these are a lot of questions, but please do help.

      Thanks in advance.

      Taking great photos

      Moscow May 16, 2015 at 4:59 AM

      I would like to ask those who have been to Moscow or those who have lived or who are currently living in Moscow (I am emphasizing these so I do not get a copy and paste answer from those who have not been to Moscow at all): Could you give me some hints where I could take great photos of Moscow´s landmarks? I will be there for only 3 nights and that is why I could really use some tips. Please do not give me tips like hire a professional photographer or some other tips that I could come up myself (sorry if I am being straightforward but I am really discouraging tips that will turn me off because I seldom ask for tips. thank you).

      How to get in contact

      Ufa Nov 24, 2004 at 4:26 AM

      Hi, in 1991 as a student I finished my degree dissertation in Ufa, Baskortostan. I was there for six weeks to make a business plan for an sowjet institute which wanted to sell sparkplugs in western Europe. It was agreat time there. We worked, lived "Russian life" made trips to the countryside and got many many inpressions. (you find pictures in my travelogue). When we (3 students and I) were in Ufa we became friends to our translators. My translator was a young woman called Elvira. Also we had a driver and great organiser Rachim Garifullin. Our dissertations were a project together with the Management Acadamy of Baskortostan. I don't know if it is still existing. Are here VT's from Ufa who can help me to get in contact ?Over the years I lost all adresses and we hadn't email at that time...
