    Remember, always let the girl win if you like her.

    Bowling is gaining popularity now in Russia.
    There are 36 lanes
    at Bowling City at Sennaya Center which is open 24-hours.
    There are some late night and early morning discounts.
    Lowest price about 360-660 rubles an hour. Four people can play on a lane.
    Here is a short clip of rolling a strike.

    Remember to throw some gutter balls after this or your girlfriend will be upset. :)
    ( You can also ask for the gutter rails to be automatically raised for children or your girlfriend and they will always score some points.)

    Equipment: Rent, the shoes and balls are included in the fee.

    Suoranta Entertainment Center

    Ticket with Tretjak's Signature
    2 more images

    Suoranta is an entertainment area 15 kms East from St. Petersburg. It's very beautiful place with little hills, and more used in winter time. I was there watching motor ski-sledge competition, where I met the famous former hockey-goalkeeper Vladislav Aleksandrovitš Tretjak, nowadays a member of Russian Cabinet. Here I enclose the ticket with Tretjak's autograph.

    Many villages around St. Petersburg have a Finnis name, like Suoranta. That's because the town is erected just in the middle of old Finnish population, Inkeri area. The name Suoranta means "the coast of a swamp". Indeed, thet place is higher area, and the whole St. Petersburg has been a large swamp 300 years ago!

    Cheburashka, the current Russian Olympic symbol
    1 more image

    In 2014 the winter olympics will be in Russia. The children's cartoon character Cheburashka was the symbol for Russia's Olympic team in Turin, Italy in 2004.
    Normally he is brown, but for the winter Olympics he became white.
    The games will be in the sourthern resort area near Sochi on the Black Sea.

    Equipment: Cheburashka is an imaginary animal that arrived to Russia in a box of oranges. No one knows where he came from, but he is only found in Russia. He was invented by Uspensky who wrote a book and popularized by 4 animated cartoons. In the coming years there will be new cartoons released by Japanese animation studios. Watch for them!
