I will be going to Dubna for five weeks this summer and was wondering how safe it is as a whole. I am looking to do some morning running and want to make sure that this is advisable. What is crime like in the city? Are there areas to avoid, times to avoid being out alone (of course middle of the night, but otherwise). My assumption is that it is quite a safe place due to it being a scientific town with a relatively small size, but I would like to make sure before I go.
Will running be a problem or hazardous, or will I be fine if I exercise the normal precautions used when running elsewhere?
Just out of curiosity (and I hope this isn't out of place) is there an indoor ice rink in Dubna that allows for skating in the summer? Or even better a speed skating club (Конькобежный спорт/Шорт-трек)? I'll be there for a couple of months this summer and would love to keep skating in my free time :)
I am traveling to Dubna in connection with the water ski championships in July and need information about hotels. Can anyone tell me about the Resident Hotel? What hotel would you recommend? Thank you. David Hensley
does the bus or train have bathroom?
