    • 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

      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.

    • Buying Rubles in the UK?

      by Cyreath Online Now Jul 21, 2005 at 1:38 PM

      oops, always hit 'post' too soon, I must get my brain in gear more!

      I've been looking to buy Russian Rubles before I got out to Yekaterinburg - I can't find anywhere to get them! For previous holidays I've gone to Thomascook and had no problems, this time I checked the website and they only have Euros or US Dollars?!

      Anyone know where to buy Rubles from in the UK?

      Ideally that I can collect as I go on the 4th August!

      Thanks again!

The ones I have found are all in russian. What is the best/nicest way to go there from my home in Stockholm, Sweden? By flight, or should I perhaps fly to Moscow and then take the Transsibirean railroad from there. Any suggestions. Cheers
