Train hostel on Lake Baikal - crowdfunding

Hello everyone,

My name is Denis, I work with english-speaking tourists for many years now. Since a lot of backpackers/tourists visit lake Baikal on the way to or from Mongolia or on Trans-Siberian journey, me and my wife opened a travelers hostel in Ulan-Ude.

But now we plan to build a hostel just on the shore of lake Baikal, and it's going to be made of a real passenger train carriage. We started a crowd funding campaign on IndieGoGo, it's here http://igg.me/at/trainhostel/x/9768138

Hi!

I'm going to travel from St. Petersburg to Volgograd 1 by train, but when I checked on rzd.ru, there is no schedule for that.
Is there anyone knows about it? Or I have to come back to Moscow and take train to Volgograd from there?

Perm-36 Gulag museum

Hello everybody!

Does anyone know for sure if the Perm-36 Gulag Museum is still operating? I am aware there was a discussion about shutting down the museum and I wander what is the situation at the moment. I am planning a visit on May 21 on my way back from Siberia to Moscow but if the museum is no more accessible to the public I don't see any good reason for me to stop in Perm. Please advise!

Visa entering from China

I'm thinking of taking the S7 flight from Urumqi to Novosibirsk. There shouldn't be any problems getting a Russian visa to do this, should there? I'll be getting it in London.

hi guys
we' ll go to moscow and st petersbourg for 1 week
unfortunately, according to our flights we ll have to fly in and out from moscow so we were thinking about spending the first 2 days in moscow, then 3 in st petersbourg and the last one in moscow
how would u suggest us to move considering that we'lll travel with 4 old people?
is the night train moscow - st petersbourg too tiring for them?
how much would be the average price for a day train trip moscow - st petersbourg?
thanks in advance
