    • Anyone know current Aeroflot baggage allowances? Dont trust website...

      Moscow Dec 20, 2014 at 12:25 PM

      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

      Sightseeing in Kremlin and Around Red Square

      Moscow Dec 3, 2014 at 3:53 AM

      I will have a stop-over in Moscow Friday December 19th on my way to Vietnam and I will have four or five hours in central Moscow to do some sightseeing (from 11 or 12 a.m. till 4 p.m.). Transit visa has been fixed and I know how and when to get to and from the airport.

      I am mostly into architecture and my plan is to see the exterior of St Basil´s Cathedral and State House Museum. I will browse quickly at the interior of GUM and in Kreml I will go directly to the Cathedral Sq to admire the exterior of the churches and the Bell Tower. I will not enter the Bell Tower neither the Armoury.

      1. I am really into architecture as well as photography, and would like to see some of the churched from inside as well. Should I choose St Bail or any of the ones at Cathedral Sq; which are the more beautiful ones? What are the lines like to get inside? I have read that photography is not permitted inside the churches on Cathedral Sq; what about inside St Basil´s?

      2. Anything else I should not miss while being in the Kremlin/Red Sq area?

      3. Do I need to change money so I have some rubles, or can I pay entrance fees and my lunch etc with Visa? What about the airport express train and the metro?

      4. Does anyone have a restaurant in the area to recommend? I do not want to waste time searching for a restaurant. European food is preferred, but not necessarily. Should I eat inside GUM while I am there to save time? If so; which restaurant?

      Thanks from Lena

      Tourist registration in Sortavala

      by Skillsbus Online Now Feb 7, 2013 at 11:27 AM

      HI,
      I am visiting Sortavala in July this year and hopefully staying with a friend.
      On my visa application i must state where i am staying.
      Once in Sortavala where should i go to register my visit?
      If i stay at a hotel they normally do this for me so this is something i have not had to do before.
      Alternatively i could stay in a hotel for 1 or 2 nights and get registered and then stay with my friends ?

      Travel to Sortavala

      by Kardrew Online Now Mar 11, 2007 at 5:44 AM

      Hello

      I would be grateful if anyone can advise me.

      I wish to travel to the Sortovala area (my mother was evacuated from this region in 1940 & 1944 - Laskela & Harlu to Finland).

      I will be travelling from the UK (Manchester) & would like to see some other parts of Russia - maybe St Petersburg.

      What would be the best way to do this? Travel from Helsinki to St Petersberg to Sortovala?
      or from Estonia? or Russia (need to take cheap flight)
      Best method of transport? Train? Hire a car?
      Best way to find accommodfation?
      Best time of year to travel?
      How to keep it cheap?
      Things to see?
      How safe is it?
      Any advice on visas/ money?

      I would be grateful for any help as I have only just began to explore this idea & am finding it difficult to find information.
      Kind regards
      Kardrew
