      I will be in Spb over the next 2 weeks. I have heard about Andersengrad and wonder if it is worth visiting. Is there an entrance fee when I get to Sosnoviy Bor ?

    • 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
      DG

    • St Petersburg in October

      Leningradskaya Oblast' Jul 6, 2007 at 12:35 PM

      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?

      Thanks!

    • SAFE FOR ASIANS

      Leningradskaya Oblast' Oct 28, 2004 at 5:55 AM

      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
