    • 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.

    • Omsk, a nice place to learn Russian?

      Omsk Sep 8, 2013 at 1:31 PM

      Hello everyone

      I'm planning to head up to Russia after several weeks in Kirghizistan and Kazakstan to learn some Russian. I could do so in Omsk by integrating the Russian course for foreigners at the University. However I found so far little info on the city of Omsk itself: How welcoming is the city, if there is much going on culturalwise, how open are locals to foreigners, in short is Omsk is an optimal destination to settle down for a month or so and get the pulse of real Russia if I can say.

      thanks for your tips!
      Cheers

      Trying to find Family

      Omsk Oct 19, 2007 at 4:03 AM

      Hello. Could someone look in the phone book and see if there are any Appelt family names listed? My grandfather left Omsk in 1923 and last heard from family in 1936. His father was Henry and mother Amelia. They were Germans settled around the eastern shadow of the Ural moutains, not too far from the Irtysh river. Any help is appreciated.

      Thank you

    • Are there only three hotels in Omsk?

      Omsk Dec 5, 2005 at 5:15 PM

      I plan to visit Omsk in the second week of January 2006. Various websites and discussion groups mention prices around20 night. But, after hours of searching, I can only find three hotels (Tourist, Molodyozhnaya and Omsk) all quoting rates around80-90. But then, none seems to be available in January! Do they close when the weather gets cold? Has anyone in Omsk got any ideas about where to stay - (closer to20 than90) and available?
      Thanks
