      Moscow Apr 11, 2015 at 2:33 PM

      long overnight stay on way to Croatia - sleeping lounge/rooms in the airport have very mixed reviews and no prices that I can find. There is a hotel right outside the terminal - no visa necessary - anyone have any suggestions or comments on safety?

    • Helicopter tour over Saint Petersburg

      Saint Petersburg Apr 10, 2015 at 11:43 AM

      Hello everyone!

      Is anyone of you interested in sharing the costs of a helicopter tour? Me and my boyfriend are going to Petersburg next week and I want to surprise him with a helicopter tour. Unfortunately, the tour is too expensive for me and I can't afford the costs all on my own (; We would fly with a 3-person helicopter, the price is always the same: 23.500 rubles (I already got an discount of 2500 rubels). That means that if I would find one more who would like to take the tour with us, the price would be about 7.840 rubles. I would really, really love to take the heli-tour, because I think it's a lifetime experience. And what's more: the ruble is currently down - that means that this tour probably will never be that "cheap" again (;

      Many thanks in advance Judith

      Russia Apr 2, 2015 at 5:24 PM

      I want to travel to Russia soon as a tourist. Does anyone know whether tourists can still use their credit/debit cards in Russia without any problems?

      Russian Visa

      Russia Mar 25, 2015 at 4:17 AM

      We are 4 people that intend to travel through Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and into Russia (St Petersburg and onto Moscow). Could anyone advise me on the best way to obtain a Visa for Russia. There seems to be loads of sites on the net but its difficult to tell which are genuine. We are UK citizens. I think I will also require a visa for Belarus?

    • Transportation from Belorusskey train station to Marriott Grand Hotel at 26/1 Tverskaya St.

      Moscow Apr 8, 2015 at 12:16 PM

      I will be taking the Aero express to the train station and on the map the hotel appears to be over a mile from the station.

      Normally a taxi would be the way to go but there are many warnings about taking a taxi from outside the station.

      Thank you

    • cheap , comfortable and privacy-guaranteed train ride from Moscow to St Petersburg

      Moscow Mar 20, 2015 at 2:39 PM

      Hello friends ,

      I'd appreciate your kind help.

      I'll be travelling with a company of 20 family members and friends from Moscow To St Petersburg on August 05 . Most of my group are senior couples above 60 years of age . We're travelling on a strict budget , that's why we thought the overnight trains might be the cheapest option . However, we have real concerns that the night train ride might turn out too wearisome and exhausting for our old age to sustain , especially that our lively tourist program would start right after we arrive in St.Petersburg . We want to make sure that the train would allow us a good night's sleep and , no less important , keep our privacy ( i.e. a closed compartment with comfortable 2 bed for each couple ).

      I'd appreciate your recommendation for a cheap , comfortable and privacy- guaranteed overnight train ride between the two capitals .

      Thank you very much

      BOAT TRIP: when starts summer season?

      by mprevot Online Now Mar 12, 2004 at 5:00 AM

      i plan on taking a boat from yaroslavl to kazan. in my guide book it says, that you can catch long-distance boats in the summer season, which lasts from early june to early october. but i'll be there beginning of may, which doesn't to seem to make part of the summer season. does anybody know, if there are boats running already in may too? it doesn't have to be necessairely a long-distance boat, i'm also fine with several short-distance boats. i just need to end up kazan.
