    • 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.

      Mariupol' Jun 10, 2005 at 5:42 PM

      I am looking for Mrs. Natalie Lembersky and her family. I believe she has moved to Mariupol. She married John Lembersky, and her maiden name was Nadia Werbitzky, which she signs her art work by her maiden name. The reason why I am looking for Mrs. Lembersky is that I have old photographs that belong to her and I want to return them to her and her family. If anyone knows or knew Mrs.Lembersky please contact me by email. I have been searching for months since I purchased these photographs and it would be great for me to return them to her. If anyone knows her please pass this message onto her and her family, thanks to all who have read my message. Sincerely, Lorimickre@aol.com
