    • 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.

    • 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
