    • The best and most economical metro card/ticket for a group

      Saint Petersburg Jul 11, 2015 at 12:27 PM

      Hi,
      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 .

      Passport control

      Moscow Jul 6, 2015 at 9:48 PM

      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 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?

      Ferry from Russia to Japan

      by LuciadaVinci Online Now Jun 1, 2015 at 9:48 AM

      Hi everybody,
      Please, could you advise? I figured out that I need a valid ticket out of Russia, before I even apply for my visa. Is this correct?
      If yes, then I'm thinking to go to Japan next, by ferry. The cheapest route is Vladivostok - Donghae - Sakaiminato (according to wikitravel.org/en/Vladivosto...), so I prefer it.

      Does anybody know where I can purchase a ticket safely and the cheapest possible way, if I need it before my visa application? What if they don't issue my visa after all? I'm a British citizen.

      Many thanks, indeed!

      Also, information about the ferry from Slavyanka to Vladivostok would be helpful. I only know that there are 2 ferries per day, at 6.30am and 5.30pm. Can anyone tell me how long it takes and how much tickets are? Are there group ticket prices?

      Hi fellow travellers,

      Willing to make all the way to Vladiwostok with the "Transib", I was considering, once there, to jump to Japan and get back to Europe from there (Tokyo).

      My question to you now is what do you suggest: Is it better to take a boat from Vladiwostok to Japan? Or does it take too long? (How long?) And is it easy to get a ticket for this way, once you are in Russia? Or is it better just to fly to Japan and from there back to Europe?

      As you see, many questions, I know...

      I thank you in advance for your answers!

      Cheers,

      Hi there!
      I'm planning to reach the far east of Russia by train and it seems very difficult to find a budget place to stay (who should respond for booking in english language!)
      Anything like hostel, dormitory, guesthouse, homestay would do.
      Prices like 20 / rub 600 would be great
      Anybody has a suggestion?
      After searching it seems to me that almost everything is made for big spenders over there!
      Not to mention tours further out- brrr!!!
      Also, if you have a similar suggestion for other eastern city could be of great help, so not to be confined to just to Vladivostok
      many thanks to all
