    • Watching football in Moscow

      Moscow Aug 10, 2015 at 2:52 PM

      I am visiting Moscow at the end of August, and am interested in attending a football match while there. CSKA are at home to Anzhi on the Saturday night I am there; and Lokomotiv are at home to Krasnodar on the Sunday lunchtime. Russian football gets a lot of negative publicity here in the UK due to crowd trouble and racism - is it safe for foreign tourists to visit these matches? Which would be better? And which section of the stadium would be best/safest?

    • Are the canals of St. Petersburg safe to walk on.

      Russia Aug 3, 2015 at 9:06 AM

      I have seen vehicles driving on the canals of St. Petersburg in old paintings (e_g http://goo.gl/wpO6nL). My question is are they safe to walk on, & if so, is it safe to use lightweight vehicles (i.e. not a car but lighter than a small car)? Are there any legal restrictions?

    • Good snow boots for walking around the city

      Moscow Aug 13, 2015 at 4:28 AM

      I'm going to Moscow for the first time next year in February and need some cold weather, walking on icy streets, snow boots. I'm unsure whether I should buy boots there or try and get something here at home. I live in Australia and there isn't much need for these type of boots, so the selection isn't great. Does anyone have any suggestions where would be the best place to buy them. This is the first leg of my trip so don't want to blow the budget at the start.
      Thanks AngieBeachBum

    • Buying a fur in Moscow

      Moscow Aug 17, 2015 at 10:47 AM

      I will be taking a river cruise in September 2015 and I would like to buy a fur coat. I am interested in a full or 3/4 length karakul or Persian lamb. Tailoring is important to me as well as quality fur. Do you recommend a reliable merchant and what should I be willing to pay?

      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
