      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 Zürich 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?

      English speaking contacts for a documentary film needed

      Yekaterinburg May 31, 2006 at 1:57 AM


      my name is Walter Ghidibaca and I'm the producer of an independent travel documentary about Siberia. The idea of the film is to show how one can travel across Siberia with a minimal budget and also to show the main places and the beautiful nature.

      One of our main stops will be Yekaterinburg and we are interted to meet locals that want to be part of our film and tell us about the city and maybe show us around a little bit.

      I can also be contacted at
      Many thanks!

    • Buying Rubles in the UK?

      Yekaterinburg Jul 21, 2005 at 1:38 PM

      oops, always hit 'post' too soon, I must get my brain in gear more!

      I've been looking to buy Russian Rubles before I got out to Yekaterinburg - I can't find anywhere to get them! For previous holidays I've gone to Thomascook and had no problems, this time I checked the website and they only have Euros or US Dollars?!

      Anyone know where to buy Rubles from in the UK?

      Ideally that I can collect as I go on the 4th August!

      Thanks again!

      Hi, I´m planning a trip to Yekaterinburg later this year. Does anyone know any good web pages to study, preferably in english, with a map of the city, pictures and stuff like that? The ones I have found are all in russian. What is the best/nicest way to go there from my home in Stockholm, Sweden? By flight, or should I perhaps fly to Moscow and then take the Transsibirean railroad from there. Any suggestions. Cheers
