      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 Z├╝rich 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?

    • Ideal duration for doing justice to Novgorod , 1 day or 2 days?

      by shekhar.ghate Online Now May 23, 2014 at 10:55 AM

      Planning to visit Novgorod from St Pet by car in Mid June 2014, reaching at @ 11.30 am. On way to Moscow. One option is to take same day night train at 9.15 pm to Moscow.
      Other option is to take next day same train at night. Then we get next day whole day. We are not short of time.
      Is one day of 6/7 hrs adequate? or the place offers many things so that 2 days are meaningfully spent.

      Military stuff to see in Novgorod or nearby places?

      by Drugness Online Now Dec 29, 2012 at 11:24 AM

      Hello all
      Planning my first ever trip to Novgorod and am curious about how many monuments, museums and memorials to the Great Patriotic War, the Siege of Leningrad, Afghanistan etc that I may find there?
      If anyone could recommend unusual stuff like this, i'd love to hear about it.
      Thank you all!
      I'm going to be putting a similar post in the St P and Moscow sections so it might appear to be a trible post.
      Cheers guys!

      Best way to travel to Velikiy Norvgorod from St Petersburg and then vice versa

      by Drugness Online Now Dec 12, 2012 at 5:03 AM

      Hello all
      From the online research I have done, I take it there is no train line running between these 2 cities? :)
      I'm planning to spend 2 nights here. Is that enough? It's hardly too much? :)
      If you could advise the best transport routes between here and St P, I would be most grateful
      Thank you all

      Which restaurant is better and more impressive: Hol'mgard or Detinets?

      by PTadin Online Now Oct 23, 2007 at 9:03 AM

      I am planning on bringing a group to Novgorod in late November and I was wondering which of these two restaurants would be better for dinner: Hol'mgard or Detinets? I prefer an old charming restaurant that would impress my group, but I am open to your opinion. Any help is appreciated!
