      Buying Train Tickets Online

      Russia 1 hours ago

      I'm trying to buy a St Petersburg to Moscow train ticket using rdz.ru The site takes me through the reservation and the payment with no problems (I've created a log-in profile) but after I've completed the payment bit, including the security verification, it declines the transaction.

      I'm in the UK, using a Visa debit card.

      Has anyone else here had similar problems?

      Thanks in advance for any feedback.

      Visum and boat

      Saint Petersburg Mar 20, 2014 at 9:29 AM

      I have heard you don't need a visum/visa if you go to St. Petersburg by ferry and leave Russian within 72 hours. Does that mean that I can arrive with boat and leave with plane, or would I have to leave the same way as I arrived?

    • Worried about visit to St. Petersburg in May

      Saint Petersburg Mar 26, 2014 at 2:23 PM

      Going to St. Petersburg in May (2014). We are Canadian, in our 60's and going on our own for 5 days. Already have our VISA. Coming in from Helsinki on train. 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.
