    • 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.

    • 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)

      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
