does anyone know if there is a ferry from volgograd to astrakhan on volga river?
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?
We're a group of 16 adults visiting St. Petersburg from August 03- 07 . We'll be moving around together and using the Metro system most of the time . My question is: what's the best and most economical metro card or ticket for us ? I've heard of a new money- saving card that allows unlimited rides and can be used by the whole group all at once. If such a card ever exists ,how would the woman at the cashier window be able to understand that this's the type of card/ ticket I need ? in other words , How best to express myself to her in Russian ? Your help is greatly appreciated .
i want to know how difficult would it be to travel round moscow & st petersburg in december & january. my (loose) plan is to stay a week at each place just to look around and soak up the culture and feeling of the cities and surrounding areas. Are there many festive things happening around this time ie like the europe xmas markets.
We will be visiting Moscow next month. Can anyone recommend any restaurants in the vicinity of the Kremlin (our hotel is about a ten minute walk away) that are good and have menus translated into English? Failing that any tips for working out what to order?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
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.
i am going for two weeks in the beginning of sept. to moscow, st. petersburg and warsaw
am i better off taking a windbreaker with a sweatshirt underneath, or a heavy leather bomber? (dont know if the leather bomber is too heavy)
I am planning a trip to Russia as a tourist. In my twenties I was a Russian linguist in U.S. military intelligence. I am now retired. However, I still know enough Russian that I will be able to communicate in basic form with the people there.
I don't want to raise suspicion or draw too much attention for obvious reason. If I am asked, should I avoid telling anyone how I really learned Russian?
