      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.

      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

      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.
