      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".

      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?

      I recently lost my sister's black and green beaded necklace that she purchased on Kizhi Island. Is there somewhere in the states I could purchase another one?

      Kizhi Island artist

      by jmike44 Online Now Oct 28, 2007 at 9:09 AM

      Last month while on a Russian waterways cruise we stopped at Kizhi Island. There was an artist, an elderly man, at work making a pencil sketch of the 1876 Oshenev farmhouse with the wooden Transfiguration Cathedral behind it. He had some of his pictures laid out for sale. I didn't buy one but my friend did. Does anyone know this man's name? We would like to contact him if possible.
