I will be in Sochi as a stop on a cruise in September. Can any one recommend a reliable tour operator which offers day tours of Sochi? Will tour operators include a group visa so that I do not have to purchase a separate visa?
Has anyone been to Kamchatka and can give me some advice on travelling around, treks, must see things etc.?
I have been doing as much research as possible on the web but am still unclear as to things like transport, independent travel, accommodation outside of Petropavlosk.
We cannot afford the helicopter tours so is the only other alternative to join a guided tour or is it possible to get around on your own using public transport or hiring vehicles.
Thanks for any help.
I am a frequent traveller and always end up back home with huge mobile phone bills due to roaming (I need to stay connected due to pro and personnal reasons). If I turn off 3G I can only get connected when I am near a Wi-Fi spot and phone calls are banned anyway (unless I use Skype)...So if you have hints to avoid roaming or else, I would be grateful ! Thanks !
Hi all, I am trying to find the bus schedule between Chudovo and Veliky Novgorod. The new Sapsan stops at Chudovo and only takes less than an hour from St Peteresburg. The tourist site says to then catch a bus from the station but I am unable to find a schedule to see if this would be a time efficient way to go and if I would be able to get back to Chudovo to catch the Moscow/st Petersburg train which stops at Chudovo at either 5:pm and 7:30 pm.

For any assistance I thank You in Advance.
I am trekking in abakan in july and want to travel by train or bus into mongolia via a border crossing open to foreigners.
Can you tell me what my options are to do this ( without flying)
Hello my friends, I may have to spend Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14 in Moscow before flying back home on Monday. Any suggestions on what to do?
I'd like to go to an outdoor market if possible. As well as visit the Kremlin, etc. If there are any football matches, I'd be interested too. Thanks in advance!
I will come to St. Petersburg the two first weeks in July. Does anybody know if there are any nice beaches in or around St. Petersburg? How is the water quality and the temperature in the water?
Thank you in advance for your replies:-)
we will be in Tiksi for two days between 4 and 6 August 2013. Do you know a bed and breakfast, or accomodation with a family or hotel? We are 3 adults.
I will be in St-P for work for three days next week.
When looking at the evening events St-P offers, ballet in one of the theaters seems to be a good call. Is it possible to buy tickets last-minute? Or are they often sold out in advance?
Also, is it possible to join an existing city tour last-minute? I can't really say in advance which day I will be having the most time to do this but I definately want to explore St-P a bit.
Thanks lot for your kind assistance.
I'll be in Petrozavodsk in July. Can anybody suggest what i should have a look at or where to go. I've seen online about Kizhi. I understand that there is a boat trip from the waterfront.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

I have oportunity to visit Moscow( won the trip) but i only have limited choice of hotels.
There are 4 choices:
The hotel is located in a quiet residential area north of Moscow's centre, within walking distance of Petrovsko-Razumovskaya metro station.The hotel enjoys vicinity with Estate Ostankino, Palace of Count Sheremetyev, All-Russian Exhibition Centre and magnificent Botanical Garden.
The hotel is located in the VDNH area, just off a busy road leading to Moscow's centre. There is a shopping mall and supermarket open 24 hours a day only minutes from the hotel.Hotel is conveniently located on Yaroslavskoe shosse not far from the All-Russia Exhibition Centre (V.V.C.) and Ostankino television centre. You will see beautiful "Elk Island" ("Losiny Ostrov") national park out of your windows.
Hotel Cosmos is located to the north of Moscow city centre on Prospekt Mira. It is situated adjacent to the exhibition centre VDNKh, and next to the metro station of the same name.
Maxima Panorama arrangement is one of the most important advantages of this hotel – just a few meters from metro station “Avtozavodskaya”, in a business part of Moscow: 4 Masterkova str., 115280, Moscow.
Flight is to and from Domodedjevo, in some istances is just over 60km away.
Any idea on transfer?
Last time i was in Moskva, was in 1987 and we stayed in Student Dorm.
I experianced Moskva Metro, and I am more than Ok using it.After all i lived in London for 4 years!
My question for you Moscovites it which of this hotels has easiest access to the Center, Kremljin, Sv Vasilij Church, Red Square....
I kept looking at the Metro Map, but what i see on the map is not the nessesary fastes and straitforward way getting to the center and I get totally confused.
Any help appriciated.
I am travelling to Moscow next week. I would need to do lot of emails, browsing and navigation there. Carrying data packages from India is far to expensive. What would be a good and cheap option to use internet in Russia. Do we have readily available Wi-Fi zones there?
Does anyone have experience with the areas of Russia that the Mongol Rally generally goes through (i.e. the northern coast of the Caspian between Ukraine and Kazakhstan, and the Altai region crossing from Kazakhstan to Mongolia). especially the border crossings, and driving a foreign vehicle through these regions? What can we expect?
Is visiting Kremlin on sunday a good idea or will some of its attractions be closed due to church service?
I wish to take a Trans Mongolian Train Trip from Moscow to Beijing with stop overs in Irkutz and then Ulan Bator. I have had a previous bad experience (not Russia) of buying and paying for tickets on line which was never secured or my money refunded. I am also concerned about being charged at the whim of the vendor. On line I see Real Russia is recommended as an agency to buy these tickets from. Please assist. I need to secure with reputable suppliers for accommodation & transport in proof to apply for a Russian Visa here in South Africa.
I will be going to Dubna for five weeks this summer and was wondering how safe it is as a whole. I am looking to do some morning running and want to make sure that this is advisable. What is crime like in the city? Are there areas to avoid, times to avoid being out alone (of course middle of the night, but otherwise). My assumption is that it is quite a safe place due to it being a scientific town with a relatively small size, but I would like to make sure before I go.
Will running be a problem or hazardous, or will I be fine if I exercise the normal precautions used when running elsewhere?
