      Russia Mar 20, 2015 at 1:57 PM

      We are 9 of us(1 Sr. Citizen, 5 adults, 3 Children -- 11, 12, 14 year old) .

      In Moscow 3 nights (22, 23, 24 May). Flight of 5 persons reaches at 13:45 at DME airport, and the other 4 at 21:55 at DME airport, on 22 May.

      We Leave for St. Petersburg by flight 9.30am morning of 25 May from VKO

      In St. Petersburg for 2 nights. Leave for Helsinki on 27th May early Morning Train.

      Now I would be grateful if someone could guide us.

      1. As to which area (or district) will be good for us to stay in both these cities?
      2. How can we arrange Minivan for us 9, including for the 2 airport to hotel transfer in Moscow. Or will regular on the spot taxi/transfer from airport be better?
      3. How can we tour the cities for 2 days each. We would prefer private minivan with English speaking driver cum guide? Any reliable site or personal suggestion?
      4. How do we go to the Rail Stations in the early mornings (reach station by 6 am) of 25 May (Moscow) and 27 May (St Petersburg)?
      5. How to get Visa invite if we book tickets online with option to pay at hotel?

    • cheap , comfortable and privacy-guaranteed train ride from Moscow to St Petersburg

      Moscow Mar 20, 2015 at 2:39 PM

      Hello friends ,

      I'd appreciate your kind help.

      I'll be travelling with a company of 20 family members and friends from Moscow To St Petersburg on August 05 . Most of my group are senior couples above 60 years of age . We're travelling on a strict budget , that's why we thought the overnight trains might be the cheapest option . However, we have real concerns that the night train ride might turn out too wearisome and exhausting for our old age to sustain , especially that our lively tourist program would start right after we arrive in St.Petersburg . We want to make sure that the train would allow us a good night's sleep and , no less important , keep our privacy ( i.e. a closed compartment with comfortable 2 bed for each couple ).

      I'd appreciate your recommendation for a cheap , comfortable and privacy- guaranteed overnight train ride between the two capitals .

      Thank you very much

      Where to stop between Veliky Novgorod and Moscow!?

      Russia Feb 24, 2015 at 3:07 PM

      Hello all!
      I'm thinking of stopping off somewhere between the above named cities to break up the journey a bit and also to see somewhere a bit outside the capital before spending several nights there. Can anyone recommend a good town or city that I should stop off in for 1 or 2 nights? At the moment, Tver looks ok, but is a few hours there enough as opposed to staying over for a night? If there is anywhere along that route that has an important Great Patriotic War location, then that would also be cool to see!....if anyone knows of some :)
      Thanks in advance for your tips everyone! :)

      After a long flight from California I could either have a car waiting for me or take Aeroexpress. Considering the amount of traffic in Moscow it would appear to be quicker to take the express then a taxi from Belorussky Rail station.

      I have an invitation letter which covers the full duration of my stay. I start with two weeks in St Petersburg which is the route and places to stay (маршрут и место размещения) on the invitation letter. However I will spend a couple of days in Moscow and then a week in Perm at the end of my stay (but within the time specified on my invitation letter). Do I need to declare these on the visa application "itinerary (places of visit)"? If I do need to declare these places do I need a separate invitation letter with these places listed? Thanks.

      Hallo everyone,

      I am having an aeroflot flight and my ticket is showing: (Delhi over Moscow to Düsseldorf) In accordance with Aeroflot rules, free baggage allowance on your route is 2PC=23kg+23kg+10kg (hand luggage) (piece concept) The weight of the piece must not exceed 23 kilograms. The size of the piece must not exceed 158centimeters in 3 measurements. You can also take 1 piece of carry-on bag in cabin. Carry on weight must not exceed 10 kilograms and its size must not exceed 115 centimeters in 3 dimensions (55×40×20). I am flying first time aeroflot as allowance of luggage is 2 pieces plus hand luggage. Now I have the doubt how you weight, both together = 46kg or single separately? Do they allow any tolerance? Many thanks in advance
