    • How to come back to Goncharnaya/Nevsky from Pulkovo Airport at 4 AM?

      Saint Petersburg Jun 22, 2015 at 5:46 AM

      I have to drop some family members at the airport at around 3 AM, and come back from the airport at 4 AM. Is there whether any public transport is available because taxis would be expensive. I need to come back to Ul. Goncharnaya, near Moskovskiy Vokzal.

      Passport control

      Moscow 4 hours ago

      We have just travelled from Lithuania to Moscow via Minsk.
      We had an early morning train to Minsk, spent all day there (great place) then caught a late overnight train to Moscow.
      On the train to Minsk we went through passport control at Vilnius station then had passports checked and stamped on train at Belarus border, along with immigration card.
      Went to sleep on night train (Minsk to Moscow) and woke up in Moscow. So no passport control from Belarus to Russia. Is this correct? We have no stamp on the visa/passport saying we entered Russia.

      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 ?

      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
