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…
I have got my Russian visa for 27 days albeit my return tickets are booked within 18 days .
I am staying in Moscow 3 days
St. Petersburg 5 days ( hotel already booked )
Last 3 days in Moscow ( hotel already booked )
2 nights may be on board the Train travelling to St.Petersburg from Moscow
That leaves me with a 7 days window
to explore the golden ring and Novgorod .( Not Planned and not booked yet )
My question is
When and where I should register my Visa and for how long ?
Do I need to…
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!
do you know if there any buses from moscow to st petersbourg daytime, i mean, we d like to leave in the morning from the capital to st petersbourg
thanks in advance
considering the high prices of the train between moscow and st petersbourg i was thinking also about taking a 3rd class train..
how is it like travling in this kind of wagon? dangerous or very unconfortable?
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
