Russian visa websites are notoriously dodgy, so be careful who you use. The travellers at Lonely Planet's forum have put together a useful FAQ on travelling to Russia, and seem to think that WayToRussia is the most reliable of these companies.

Travel Tips for Saint Petersburg

Hermitage Museum

by filipdebont

Up to me this is highlight nr 1, whenever you visit Saint Petersburg.

It is really amazing to see what a wonderful collection of art work you can see here under one roof.

It is really impossible to write down all the names of the big masters which can be seen here. There is Rubens, Rembrandt, Titian, Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, Picasso, Gaugin, Matisse, . . . Some facts:

There are more then 400 rooms in the Hermitage, I you have completed the whole tour, you have walked 21 twenty one) kilometres . . . .

If you would stop in front of every piece of art in the Hermitage just for one minute, you would need 11 (eleven) years to see then all . . .

Summer Garden

by furioso

Between the Mars Field and the Fontanka River, this is St Petersburg's loveliest and oldest park. Laid out for Peter the Great with fountains, pavilions and a geometrical plan to resemble the park at Versailles, it became a stomping ground for 19th-century ladies (and gentlemen) of leisure. Though changed now, its formal elegance remains.

The modest, two-storey Summer Palace, in the northeastern corner of the park, was St Petersburg's first palace, built for Peter in 1704-14, and now open to the public. Little reliefs around the walls depict Russian naval victories, and many rooms contain early-18th-century furnishings.

Thanks to Paul I, son of Catherine the Great, the magical wooden palace built for Empress Elizabeth to the south of the park was knocked down to make way for the bulky Engineers' Castle. Shame he only got to spend 40 days there before being assassinated. One wing is now owned by the Russian Museum, which stages occasional exhibitions.

In the metro...

by liusia

There are a few common subway habits that might take foreigners by surprise. First, when riding down the escalator, stand to the right - the left side is for people who want to run down the escalator. Secondly, when in the car, if you're standing near the door, people will probably ask you "Vy vyhoditye?" That means "are you getting out?" and they want to know if you're leaving on the next stop. If you aren't, step aside and let them get closer to the doors. If you are, just nod or say "da" and they'll wait behind you.

Carting Club

by bugulma

Carting club where you can take a part in the race with your friends. Here is a bar as well with glass window to the race. It's very interesting to be a player in the championship. i visited club with my colleagues and we were 18. It was very interesting to have a competition. All equipment is in the club

There are many places that I'd like to visit when I was in town, but the time...isn't never enought.
I miss to see the bridge when they are lift for allow the ship passage in the night, I miss also to visit the Anthropology and Ethnography Museum, and I missed to see the 'Smol'nyi Palace' with its 'Resurrection Cathedral'.
