    • 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.

      Ferry from Russia to Japan

      by LuciadaVinci Online Now Jun 1, 2015 at 9:48 AM

      Hi everybody,
      Please, could you advise? I figured out that I need a valid ticket out of Russia, before I even apply for my visa. Is this correct?
      If yes, then I'm thinking to go to Japan next, by ferry. The cheapest route is Vladivostok - Donghae - Sakaiminato (according to wikitravel.org/en/Vladivosto...), so I prefer it.

      Does anybody know where I can purchase a ticket safely and the cheapest possible way, if I need it before my visa application? What if they don't issue my visa after all? I'm a British citizen.

      Many thanks, indeed!

      Also, information about the ferry from Slavyanka to Vladivostok would be helpful. I only know that there are 2 ferries per day, at 6.30am and 5.30pm. Can anyone tell me how long it takes and how much tickets are? Are there group ticket prices?

      Suggestion needed: By boat or by plane?

      by Helena1962 Online Now Apr 17, 2012 at 4:49 PM

      Hi fellow travellers,

      Willing to make all the way to Vladiwostok with the "Transib", I was considering, once there, to jump to Japan and get back to Europe from there (Tokyo).

      My question to you now is what do you suggest: Is it better to take a boat from Vladiwostok to Japan? Or does it take too long? (How long?) And is it easy to get a ticket for this way, once you are in Russia? Or is it better just to fly to Japan and from there back to Europe?

      As you see, many questions, I know...

      I thank you in advance for your answers!

      Cheers,
      Helena

      Hi there!
      I'm planning to reach the far east of Russia by train and it seems very difficult to find a budget place to stay (who should respond for booking in english language!)
      Anything like hostel, dormitory, guesthouse, homestay would do.
      Prices like 20 / rub 600 would be great
      Anybody has a suggestion?
      After searching it seems to me that almost everything is made for big spenders over there!
      Not to mention tours further out- brrr!!!
      Also, if you have a similar suggestion for other eastern city could be of great help, so not to be confined to just to Vladivostok
      many thanks to all
