      Hermitage and Catherine Palace

      Saint Petersburg Sep 17, 2015 at 5:26 AM

      I and my wife shall be in Saint Petersburg for two days on 22nd and 23rd Sept 2015.(i.e. next Tuesday and Wednesday). I understand we have no choice but to visit Hermitage on Tuesday and Catherine Palace on Wednesday. Please advice whether we should book online and travel or our own or take a conducted tour which appears pretty costly. We don't actually need a Guide as audio guides are sufficient and available in both places.We are unable to judge the crowd pressure in these two paces on these days and definitely do not want to miss this opportunity. Also I have only the 1pm on wards slot available on Tuesday for the Hermitage!


    • student trip (nurses) to St. Petersburg

      Saint Petersburg Sep 20, 2015 at 9:30 AM

      We are a group around 50 Norwegian nursing students who wants to have a trip to St Petersburg next year. We are planning 6 nights there, with 3-4 days of studying. I therefore wonder if anyone know about relevant museums, organisations (within health/socialcare), suggestions for people who can teach us something relevant for nurses or for example about the RussianĀ“s health care system. Please give me contact information if you have or a link.

      I am a little confused as to how to best utilize my time in the Red Square Kremlin area. I gather the must see places there are

      1. St. Basil Church
      2. Lenin mausoleum
      3. Kremlin Armoury
      4. Diamond Fund
      5. Bell Tower
      6. Alexandria Garden
      7. State Historical Museum

      Can all be covered in one day?. Any suggestions since it appears to be a pretty large area. Also tips on purchase of entry tickets.It shall be a weekend.

      A Pakistani Tourist

      Kaliningrad Sep 30, 2015 at 3:21 AM

      Hi all
      Hope you having good time
      I'm planning to visit Kaliningrad this November (2015) as Its the only time off for me from my office for a week. one of my colleagues adores kaliningrad a lot compelled me to visit. but I have few questions anyone here would answer?
      1) I'm an asian/Pakistani Brown skin guy, and honestly I ve been to many places around the world and found it bit weird to be in such place where people around you all are from a total different background stares you that annoy you and you do not enjoy your days off. so how's the local behavior towards brown skininned, single tourist on his own? (I'm really sorry if that sound offensive)
      I'm not a beach/club/pub/party kinda guy, rather trekking, landscapes, mountains, hiking alone, and discovering borders. So would it be easy to walk/trek alone in forests, mountains, fields, and wandering around the border area? having in mind that there are restricted areas for tourists. But I'd really love to visit and capture some snaps with the tri-point (lithuania-poland-and russia border.
      Thank you all in advance

    • ferry from volgograd to astrakhan

      by tobia.desalvo Online Now Aug 12, 2007 at 9:34 AM

      hello friends,
      does anyone know if there is a ferry from volgograd to astrakhan on volga river, with the possibility of travel with own car or motorcycle on the boat?

      best regards

    • thanks, some extra questions though

      by nponpabga Online Now Jul 21, 2006 at 9:27 AM

      I'd prefer not to fly, just to keep costs down. Domestic or intenational flights entirely within the CIS also may not be the safest. I flight to Moscow would be nice, but then I'd have to back track to Southern Russia, almost a 24 train trip. Baku seems like a good idea, but a visa is still necessary...

      but this is a solid option, thanks for your time.

      Any other means would be appreciated... boat on the black sea to Sochi?

      by npanpabga Online Now Jul 20, 2006 at 1:55 PM

      What is the best way to get to Russia from Georgia? it seems like it will be like jumping through hoops. From Tblisi to southern russia, particularly Volgograd or other hubs (e.g. krasnodar, Rostov-na-donu, astrakhan, I guess even Vladikavkas) is what I am looking for.

      Thanks in advance!

      hi everyone !
      My husband and me are planning to go to Volgograd for a specific reason : see my grandpa's best friend... before he is leaving that world. But i have huge problems: First I have never been there. + when I check on services of maps, roads with his address to locate where in Volgograd he is living... the search is always ending with certainly a map but the wrong name of the street. All of this to say that i am a bit scared to end up in a city I do not know... shall I trust a taxi driver that will for sure drive me to my grand dad's friends front door?... I don't speak russian... i don't really know where to ask for advices (to be sure to end up , from my hotel to the Russian buddy, safe !!)
