I found Real Russia travel agency & am working with them on an itinerary. I know there are a few luxury trains, but for the average traveler like myself, I have a question. Are all the other trains of similar style/ quality? I read that there is a Chinese train that has option of ensuite. I have tried to find the different trains or can I expect they are all similar?
I know there are 2 or 4 compartments, & an open compartment that sleeps many. Other than that I know food changes w/ the country of…
I'm on a long journey for a year and have just started in Saint Petersburg, Russia. for the world cup. I'll be ending my world cup events on the June 26th in Saransk and am looking to either go south to the Caucasus mountain area or out to the Siberia area. I plan on doing mostly outdoor adventures but also like seeing cities as well. If any one is interested in joining or if a group already has a plan I am flexible and just looking to have some company.
My background: I'm a well traveled 35…
My 11 y.o. daughter is a soccer fan, and I have been trying to buy tickets for her for one of the World Cup games in Moscow, so far to no avail. If any of the readers here have extra tickets you are looking to transfer, I trust that there is a way to do so without breaking FIFA rules. We would join you for any games after June 26 (when we arrive to visit grandparents). Our budget is limited to $150 per ticket, which I realize only covers some ticket categories but not others. I am also happy to…
I am looking for someone to write an article for lonelyplanet.com about the Russian Far East. The topic is flexible and the deadline is the start of August. If you are interested and have recently been to this destination, please get in touch with your idea (working title and brief outline) and examples of your work. Thanks!

Travelling from Helsinki to Kaliningrad by plane for a few days. Then flying to Moscow for a while then train to St Petersburg. I think I only need a single-entry visa BUT I am paranoid that as Kaliningrad is an exclave that somehow I might require a double-entry visa. I'm flying, not going by land so I'm not transiting or entering another country. I know with a trip to Abkhazia, for example, it is treated as leaving Russia so a double-entry visa required. But Abkhazia has some different status…
It so happens for a certain reason that all the direct buses from Gdańsk are sold out to Kaliningrad. And for that very same reason I need to travel on certain days.
However, I managed to find a local Polish bus taking me all the way to Braniewo, which is less than 10km from the border. Surely it is easy enough to take a taxi there to the crossing point but what happens then?
I'm aware that is illegal to cross the Russian border by walking and even a bicycle would do but I don't have one and…
I traveled the Trans-Mongolian almost 3 years ago, from St Petersburgh to Ulaanbaatar. We purchased all the train tickets 90 days in advance on our own, except we had to purchase the international Ulan-Ude to Mongolia from a travel agency as it's not possible to purchase it online through Tututravel.
We are completing the Trans-Siberian this time in opposite direction from Vladovistok to Irkutsk. The back tracking a bit from Irkutsk to Ulan-Ude, and again into Mongolia for our flight…
Good day all, I was thinking of walking around in my sandals, but I am not sure if the weather now is good for that if it rains, I am also not sure whether to pack pants, shorts or capris or 1 of each. Is it like summer in europe or slightly cooler like april/may? I intend to back pack as I am following my team, I want to buy stuff so not really willing to pack a lot of items. My plan was wear my sandals, capris pack on a short and a skirt and few tshirts as well as a scarf and a light…
