    • help identifying photos of churches, etc. in St. Petersburg Russia

      Russia Feb 2, 2016 at 3:02 PM

      I have seen a lot of matches searching to identify other photos, but I have been unable to match these with anything.  Two are obviously churches.  The bell tower appears to go with the church.  The other two are simply unknown.  Any help would be appreciated.

      Traveling in russia by train

      Russia Jan 17, 2016 at 3:49 AM

      We would like to go from Denmark to Skt Petersborg and from there by train to Moskva. There are a highspeed train.
      4 persons

      Flight from Denmark to Skt Petersborg and flight from Moskva to Denmark

      It looks like it is not so easy to travel by yourselves in Russia. As a Dane er need visa, fingerprint, invitation and insurance. More??? Of course easier if you by a travel agency. Train from skt petersburg to Moskva. Is it possible to hope on and off. Visit historical, cultural places

      Where to stay and what to visit

      Do you have other suggestions for such a trip?

      We are all 65 years. Do you get reduces prices in Russia? Train?

      Have a nice sunday

    • Are Australians welcome?

      Russia Jan 29, 2016 at 7:08 AM

      My husband and i will be visiting St Petersburg and Moscow for the first time in August. We are extremely excited. Unfortunately when we told friends and family the response was that we would not be welcome or safe in Russia. I don't feel this is true but I guess I am looking for reassurance. I also am on a medication ordered by my Doctor called escitalopram. I need to know that this is a legal medication in Russia. I would like to dress in a manner that is respectful to the Russian people while we are there. Is there anything I need to know to do this. Any help with theses questions will be greatly appreciated, especially the medication question.

      Flights to Japan

      Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy Nov 22, 2015 at 7:57 AM

      Hallo peeps,
      I am planning trip to Russia on the transibirian, catching train from Helsinki via St Pete's to Moscow to Vladivostok, than I found flight from Vladivostock to Petropavlosk-Kamchatskiy and exploring Kamchatka for couple of weeks. From there we want to fly to Japan, Sapporo preferably and after spending week there, fly home.
      My plan looks good on paper but now I have a problem, it seems Aeroflot do not fly from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy to Japan.
      And anybody of you lovely peeps give me idea how I can get to Japan from Kamčatka ( plane, boat) without going back to Vladivostok or anywhere else?
      Many thanks!

    • Train distances?

      Moscow Oct 25, 2015 at 10:47 AM

      We recently traveled from our hometown Gouda in The Netherlands by train to Moscow, and from there by Trans-Siberian/Trans-Mongolian to Beijing. For our route to Moscow we would like to know the distance traveled. Our route has been: Gouda - Utrecht (NL) - Oberhausen (GER) - EuroNight train "Jan Kiepura" to Warsaw - Minsk - Moscow-Belorusskaya. We would appreciate if anyone could inform us about the distances traveled (or at least part of it). The distance from Moscow via Ulaanbaatar to Beijing is known to us thanks to the "Trans-Siberian Handbook". Thanks in advance!

      A Pakistani Tourist

      Kaliningrad Sep 30, 2015 at 3:21 AM

      Hi all
      Hope you having good time
      I'm planning to visit Kaliningrad this November (2015) as Its the only time off for me from my office for a week. one of my colleagues adores kaliningrad a lot compelled me to visit. but I have few questions anyone here would answer?
      1) I'm an asian/Pakistani Brown skin guy, and honestly I ve been to many places around the world and found it bit weird to be in such place where people around you all are from a total different background stares you that annoy you and you do not enjoy your days off. so how's the local behavior towards brown skininned, single tourist on his own? (I'm really sorry if that sound offensive)
      2)
      I'm not a beach/club/pub/party kinda guy, rather trekking, landscapes, mountains, hiking alone, and discovering borders. So would it be easy to walk/trek alone in forests, mountains, fields, and wandering around the border area? having in mind that there are restricted areas for tourists. But I'd really love to visit and capture some snaps with the tri-point (lithuania-poland-and russia border.
      Thank you all in advance

    • student trip (nurses) to St. Petersburg

      Saint Petersburg Sep 20, 2015 at 9:30 AM

      Hi
      We are a group around 50 Norwegian nursing students who wants to have a trip to St Petersburg next year. We are planning 6 nights there, with 3-4 days of studying. I therefore wonder if anyone know about relevant museums, organisations (within health/socialcare), suggestions for people who can teach us something relevant for nurses or for example about the Russian´s health care system. Please give me contact information if you have or a link.

      Regards,
      Nursing students

      Hermitage and Catherine Palace

      Saint Petersburg Sep 17, 2015 at 5:26 AM

      I and my wife shall be in Saint Petersburg for two days on 22nd and 23rd Sept 2015.(i.e. next Tuesday and Wednesday). I understand we have no choice but to visit Hermitage on Tuesday and Catherine Palace on Wednesday. Please advice whether we should book online and travel or our own or take a conducted tour which appears pretty costly. We don't actually need a Guide as audio guides are sufficient and available in both places.We are unable to judge the crowd pressure in these two paces on these days and definitely do not want to miss this opportunity. Also I have only the 1pm on wards slot available on Tuesday for the Hermitage!
