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.

    • Getting to Kazan from Canada?

      Kazan' Dec 28, 2012 at 4:39 PM

      I've been planning in going on vacation for quite some time, and I would love to go to Kazan as it's a bit warmer than the rest of Russia in winter (according to wikipedia anyway!) and I'll be going in January/February. But while doing research I came across some articles saying that travel to Kazan from Canada was quite difficult compared to other Russian cities. It came across that it was quite impossible to efficiently get to there, from here. I'd have to go from Calgary, to Frankfurt, to Moscow, then Kazan because Canadians cannot enter from anywhere other than another Russian city.

      This article was a bit outdated ('07) and I'm not sure of anything has changed. By any chance do you have a better idea on travelling there?

      Shalyapin Palace Hotel History and Photos

      Kazan' Dec 4, 2007 at 9:41 AM

      I posted this question yesterday, but perhaps I didn't add it correctly as it is not there or recorded in my account info.

      I am looking for old pictures, and information on the history, of the Shalyapin Palace Hotel. I am specifically interested in the history of the Smolentzev and Shmelev trading house and I believe that the building is now the Shalyapin Palace Hotel. Could anyone give me some information or direct me to where I can find informaiton or old pictures? Is there verification that these are the same buildings, and is there information on the former owners. They were apparently E. Smolentzev and N.P. Shmelev. I believe these were Efim Smolentzev and Nikolai Pavlovich Shmelev and would like to find out information on this building and its owners, and whether there are any remenants or signs of these former owners in this building. My family is planning a trip to visit the city in the future and we have a great interest in this building.
