      Cheapest possible visa support for U.S. citizens?

      Russia Sep 27, 2016 at 9:36 PM

      Looking for the lowest-bottom price.

      - Earlier "Express To Russia" was good with $18.

      - Today ordered one from iVisa for $15.59 or 1000 Rub

      There is one from which is 900 Rub, but they have silly limitation (7 days) which should not apply to U.S. citizens, so I rather paid 100 Rub more.

      Anyone has a cheaper idea? Need for my wife + kids.

      Not very urgent, but within a week or so will apply.

      Mead - any experience?

      Vladimirskaya Oblast' Sep 27, 2016 at 1:20 PM

      Is being sold here and as far as I did see, ONLY here in Russia.
      The strength seem to be below expectation, the price is above expectation - and it seems. they add things to mead which do not belong there.

      Just bought 1l for 150 R or slightly under $3. After many tries so far the best was one for ca. 10 Sfr in Z├╝rich at X'mas market (and it's stronger than Suzdalian). The strongest ever is sold in Ukraine, it's 40-proof, but I suspect from the taste it is not real.

      Any comments, experiences, where and what to buy locally?

      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?

    • Alcohol! Whats the deal? Nizhniy Novgorod

      by cgard1 Online Now Nov 6, 2012 at 1:56 PM

      I am traveling to Nizhniy Novgorod this New Years / Christmas and would like to pick up some wine and whiskey (not vodka) for the holidays. However, my one friend there says that she does not know where to buy anything "real". She said with the problems in Russia you never know what you are buying - apparently the last two times she drank wine she was poisoned and believes most of the alcohol being sold in Nizhniy is black market fake. She said she only buys from duty free when she travels.

      Anyone able to speak to this? Other people I talk to in cities like Kazan don't seem to have problems like this! Also, is there such thing as rental cars in Nizhny? It seems easy in Moscow but I cant find anything in this town...and its not as if this is a small village....

      Thanks for any help!!!! (My first trip to Russia and its pretty damn exciting)

    • Nizhniy Novgorod

      by GeorgeW6 Online Now Nov 30, 2004 at 10:13 PM

      There is a tour to this city in January 2005 to meet the single women for marriage. Apparently the women of this city are very nice and beautiful, yet undiscovered by the rest of the world. There will be social activities and tourism always with an eye to meeting someone who could turn out to be your soul mate :-) Sounds nice, except that this place looks like it would be rather cold and bleak in winter. Does anyone know about the ladies as potential wives. Are they educated, cultured, honest, and home loving as well as beautiful? Just how bad (or good) is the weather in January? I do not speak Russian (only English and Spanish) and am older than most of the ladies, but am a widower. So I like to make my trips like this to be both fun and educational as well as romantically linked. Please send your comments to me as soon as you can, even if you miss the January 2005 tour date as I may or may not go or may decide to go to South America where I know it is warm in January and the ladies are also home loving and beautiful. Bye now, Your friend George
