      Cheapest possible visa support for U.S. citizens?

      Russia Sep 27, 2016 at 9:36 PM

      Looking for the lowest-bottom price.

      - Earlier "Express To Russia" was good with $18.

      - Today ordered one from iVisa for $15.59 or 1000 Rub

      There is one from which is 900 Rub, but they have silly limitation (7 days) which should not apply to U.S. citizens, so I rather paid 100 Rub more.

      Anyone has a cheaper idea? Need for my wife + kids.

      Not very urgent, but within a week or so will apply.

      Mead - any experience?

      Vladimirskaya Oblast' Sep 27, 2016 at 1:20 PM

      Is being sold here and as far as I did see, ONLY here in Russia.
      The strength seem to be below expectation, the price is above expectation - and it seems. they add things to mead which do not belong there.

      Just bought 1l for 150 R or slightly under $3. After many tries so far the best was one for ca. 10 Sfr in Zürich at X'mas market (and it's stronger than Suzdalian). The strongest ever is sold in Ukraine, it's 40-proof, but I suspect from the taste it is not real.

      Any comments, experiences, where and what to buy locally?

      All border crossings between Russia and Belarus closed to third-country citizens?

      Russia Oct 15, 2016 at 6:19 PM

      It sounds like a complete nonsense - but it seem to be the case.

      I am unsure, what is the situation in the reality.
      I was able to cross the border near Smolensk (I did not know about these news and simply crossed the border on a secondary road through villages). At this moment my car is near Moscow, in the garden of our friends.
      I am in the States, going back end of October.

      I did not experience any issues leaving Russia.

      The news are confusing. On one hand they say that the new problem affects EU citizens only (I used American passport). On the other hand some sources mention all third-country citizens.

      I do not know the truth. Only that so far no one did care less about me crossing into Russia "illegally".

      New Years Eve ball or restaurant

      Saint Petersburg Sep 23, 2016 at 8:33 PM

      Hi everyone,

      Hoping for some advice on where to go for New Years Eve in Saint Petersburg...

      I realise that this is a very important time for Russian families to spend time with each other. However, for guests to the country, what would you suggest would be the most interesting thing to do / place to visit to get a taste of NYE festivities?

      I know a lot of people will wander along Nevsky Prospect to gather in Palace Square. Not particularly into drunken crowds, so would rather consider something like:

      1. A quieter place but still good views to see the fireworks... Perhaps Strelka?
      2. The best restaurant that will offer excellent food with festive / cultural entertainment... perhaps L'Europe or Bellevue Brasserie?
      3. A NYE ball or other cultural occasion, such as the Tsar's Ball at Catherine Palace, but perhaps not quite so prohibitively expensive!

      Thank you for any advice!

      Peterhof and Catherine's Palace

      Saint Petersburg Oct 5, 2016 at 1:01 AM

      Would love to visit both Peterhof and Catherine's Palace in December. I realize winter is not ideal, especially for Peterhof, but would still like to go.
      To save time, is reserving a tour a more time-effective way of doing it compared to using public transport? Is it possible to request a tour, visiting Catherine's Palace early in the morning and visiting Peterhof later in the day before returning to St Petersburg?
      Which is the best tour company to go with?

    • accommodation help - Chelyabinsk

      by melissainmelb Online Now Jan 27, 2006 at 8:50 PM

      We're travelling in a mid-to-late Feb. We need to be close to the Metallurgical suburb (north) of Chelyabinsk. An apartment would be ok since we have 8 nights in Chelyabinsk. Can anyone help on how to find an apartment? Of course there are hotels but we need to stay close to this suburb. Also, how bad is the smog?

    • CHELYABINSK Hotels and Moscow Airports

      by Yarm35 Online Now May 14, 2005 at 12:38 PM


      My wife and I and one of our sons (adult) are travelling to Chelyabinsk, Russia for a wedding in August. We would appreciate any information on the area.

      We are beginning the trip by flying to St Petersburg and thence a boat tour to Moscow.

      We are especially interested in transportation (for three plus baggage) from the Chelyabinsk airport to hotels and back. Are there special services available or do you have to take a taxi? What are the rates?

      Does anyone have any information on hotels in Chelyabinsk? We are looking at the Victoria and Maridain hotels.
      Is English understood at the hotel? … We know French and a little German… but no Russian.

      Is there anything special we should see or be aware of in Chelyabinsk.

      We will be departing from Moscow (after the tour) to Chelyabinsk on a Saturday and returning Tuesday to Moscow (DME) then have to change to Moscow SVO airport to continue our flight to USA. In this case we will need to transfer five people plus baggage between the airports. Any suggestions

      We have thought of attempting to pre-arrange for a van and driver to meet us at DME and take us to SVO. Are the companies reliable?

      Thank you, for your help
