    • 4-5 days in St Petersburg

      Saint Petersburg Nov 16, 2016 at 7:19 AM

      Hi,

      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

      Hi
      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.

      Car (U.S. licence plates) parking for extensive time

      Domodedovo Jun 29, 2016 at 4:04 PM

      Looking to leave a car for 16 days not far from the DME.
      I hope I can arrange the car parking with the airBNB host - but just if not, what alternatives are out there?

      It is a mid-size car, quite unpretending - but it has US plates.
      (Just in case the plates will be removed).

      I probably do not want to park on the street but if one knows an OK location it would be good.

      Thanks

      Safety of Dubna Russia?

      Dubna May 2, 2013 at 12:23 PM

      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?

      Dubna Jan 11, 2013 at 4:29 PM

      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 :)

    • traveling to dmitrov at the end of march 2011

      Dmitrov Mar 14, 2011 at 3:16 PM

      I would like to stay at Dmitrov at the end of this month as a supporter for the french team for the world U 18 women ice hockey champioship but all the hotel I have found on internet are full. All the hotel I'm able to find are at least at 40km from Dmitrov, but I don't know in which direction.
      As I know anybody, I would like to find another solution, so I need to know what is the frequency of the train between Moscow and Dmitrov. If it's frequent enought I could choose another city along this line, or I could stay in in an hotel in Moscow near the savelowsky railway station ?
      Or is it easy to drive a car from Moscow to Dmitrov without knowing any things in the Russian writing ?
      Or could you know what could be the price to do with taxi about 40km ?
      What are your advices ?
      Many thanks

      accomadation (not necessariliy central)

      Moskovskaya Oblast' Mar 19, 2007 at 2:47 AM

      Hello !
      I have been checking the prices of the flats and hotels in moscow for the last few days and numbers I have seen opened new windows in my life.
      As far as I understand any sort of accomadation centaral costs a fortune. Actually I don't mind travelling with metro for 15-20 mins to reach the central district, how much do the modest flats and hotels cost around that distance from the central moscow.
      I know some russian, if anyone can advise me some websites which advertise these sort of flats instead of top-rated touristic ones i will be happy to hear.
      Thanks in advance!

    • SAFE FOR ASIANS?

      Moskovskaya Oblast' Oct 28, 2004 at 5:45 AM

      Q: Hello, I plan to travel to Moscow & St. Petersburg with my mom next year (around end of November). 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 discrimination 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 Moscow & St. Petersburg next year? I would appreciate everyone's thoughts on this matter, especially from other Asians who have travelled to Russia.
