    • 4-5 days in St Petersburg

      Saint Petersburg Nov 16, 2016 at 7:19 AM


      Would anybody have recommendations for things for c. 12 (academic) high school students to see in St Petersburg, or would it be worth going on a day trip out of the city? Is Valaam Monastery too far? We'll be going in the latter half of February 2017, and obviously we're most interested in the history and literature but I'm thinking maybe there might be some little-known spiritual place inside or outside the city that might be worth a visit?

      All suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks a million.

      Day (half day) trip out of town

      Moscow Nov 20, 2016 at 10:25 AM

      I will be in Moscow from 12-16th of December attending concert in Kremlin.(14th in the evening)
      I already have list of things to see in town while I am there.
      I arrive on the 12th mid afternoon and departing the city at noon on Friday, so I only have 3 full days and afternoon on the 12th.
      I was wondering how feasible is to have day trip ( or even half day) out of the city and what you suggest is best choice for this trip?
      I know you can spend month in Moscow and not see everything, but I thought something different for fleeting visit.
      I love history and anything is OK, very much love soviet times and something to take me back to my growing up in Socialist society will be great.
      I am also very big fan of Russian Classics and visit to something connected to Tolstoy, Pushkin, Esenin or Gorki is also something I would love to experiance.
      Any suggestions?
      Thank you in advance.
      Best V

    • From St Petersberg to Vladivostok?

      Russia Nov 24, 2016 at 10:33 PM

      I want to travel diagonally across Russia using public transport. I'm planning to start in St Petersberg and traveling across the northern regions of Siberia then across to Vladivostok . I know it's a long way and will take some time.

      I was wondering if any Russians out there could tell me if it is possible to travel like this across some of the more isolated regions along the northern end of Siberia and the eastern parts of Russia? For example, is it too mountainous, is it too cold, is the frequency of transport allot less in that part of the world?

      I've travelled across countries like Mongolia, Kazakastan and other Central Asian countries so I'm somewhat familiar with some of the modes of transport. I'm just not sure what to expect in the regions I want to travel.

      I'm hoping to go in Russia's summer months.

      Any tips at all would be helpful as it will provide a great starting point for further research into this trip I will be doing in the next few years.
      Thanks so much.

    • Animals in Mandrogi (Minizoo)

      Verkhniye Mandrogi Sep 23, 2011 at 4:28 AM

      I have a question regarding the animals in the minizoo at Mandrogi. Does anybody know if there are people who take care about these animals. Is there a special staff and a veterinarian? Unfortunately I was not myself in the zoo, when I was in Mandrogi, but I am interested in to know in which condition the animals live there.(especially the raccoons.)
      Many thanks for an answer.

      Vyborg Russia - ? Finland

      Vyborg Oct 20, 2008 at 11:17 AM

      Hello all
      So Vyborg is the most direct route to get to St Petersburg from Finland. It's less than 2 hours by train from there i believe.
      What is the best and most convenient crossing on the Finnish to get to Vyborg before commencing on to St Petersburg?
      I'll be in Helsinki and i'm wondering where i should stay close to the border because i want to make an early start to cross the Russian border.
      Thanks everyone

      I am considering taking a tour to St Petersburg this upcoming October, from about the 20th through the end of the month. I was wondering I can expect from the weather, hours of daylight, etc. In other words, is late October a nice time to visit St Petersburg?

      Hello, I plan to travel tSt. Petersburg with my mom next year (around end March). But I got freaked out a bit when I read a news article about a Vietnamese student that got attacked, and other posts in other boards that talked about racial discriminiation against Asians in Russia. Some say that the unrest caused by Chechen insurgents have made some Russians jumpy and security has been tightened (notorious passport checks!) . We are hiring a private tour guide for 7 days, but the guide won't be with us 24/7, especially during the overnight trainride from St. Petersburg to Moscow. That worries me, because skinheads reportedly hang-around the metro for victims. Would it be safe for 2 chinese ladies to travel to St. Petersburg next year? I would appreciate everyone's thoughts on this matter, especially from other Asians who have travelled to Russia.

      Day trips to St.Petersburg?

      Leningradskaya Oblast' Jun 12, 2004 at 1:57 PM

      My friend and I are thinking of going maybe to Helsinki (or somewhere close to the Russian border - Estonia/Latvia). We were wondering how easy it is to visit St.Petersburg from outside the country. Are you allowed to travel in and out on a daily basis, or do you still need visas etc, and if so, how difficult are they to get? Thanks in advance
