      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?

    • Magnitogorsk: A Quick Insight

      by MastaG Online Now Aug 4, 2008 at 4:18 PM

      I myself am from Magnitogorsk, been living here for almost 5 years now. With a 500k population, lots of smog from the industrial areas found on the left bank of the Ural river it's not really the place your regular tourist would want to visit. Nevertheless, Magnitogorsk has it's own beauties, hot spots, etc. and can be considered a typical rapidly developing city. Not as fast paced and hectic as Moscow, Magnitogorsk city life is pretty enjoyable, with quite a rich history for a young city (founded 1929), great entertainment, etc.

      Well, that's a quick insight (call it biased if you will), but, if you need more information, I'd be more than glad to share by e-mail which is
