Am curious about this region and the possibility of a Western citizen to visit. Can anybody advise if there are diplomatic regions with visiting this area? I understand that the region is much safer than it previously was?
Can anyone offer advice on visiting the Kabardino-Balkarskaya Republic as well as her close neighbours? I guess the easiest way to get there would be from Georgia?
We are a couple looking to travel to Russia, Poland, Prague, and Austria. We haven't decided the time frame for this trip. Any suggestions for an easy route of travel? We were thinking flying into Russia first then out of another area. How many days should we give ourselves in Russia for sightseeing and are there tour guides we could hire?
Our trip to St Petersburg is fast approaching! I have my lovely Russian Visa in my passport, (That was a job and a half!)
I have booked a couple of tours and made notes on what we would like to do on the 3 full days we have leaving the fourth half day free at this time. Thank you to those who helped.
My husband is very interested in the Artillery Museum but its closed Monday and Tuesday ( We are in St Petersburg Mon Aug 29th, Tues Aug 30th , Wed Aug 31st,) and we can only go to Catherine's Palace on Wednesday because it is closed on Tuesdays and the last Monday of the month!
We could go on Thursday on our half day but it doesn't open until 11am and we need to leave for the airport around 12:30pm.
So, on the Wednesday we have booked a 6 hour tour to St Catherine's Palace and Peterhof. Instead of returning to St Petersburg by road with the tour we thought we would take the hydrofoil back which is something we wanted to experience and it would be quicker. Then walk to Artillery Museum.
If we are going well we hope to be there by 4pm. Its only open until 6pm. :/
We know that's probably not enough time to do it justice but that's what we have. My husband is mostly interested in the tanks etc and weapons.
Is the outside area with the tanks etc accessible when the museum is closed? From photos it looks like the main display is behind a gate and wall. If it is open we would go on a day its closed and look at the outside display and have the two hours to look inside.
If not would it be best to look inside first and look at outside display last or is all locked up 6pm?
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.
My wife and I wish to travel from Moscow to St. Petersburg in August.
We are travelling to Moscow on the Tolstoy Express from Helsinki and wondered if we should use the train again and if so which one of the two choices, Express or Overnight or, to make a change, to fly.
