Lutugino What to Pack

  • by Zemliachka Written Jan 27, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If visiting Lutugino in a fall, say October- November, have a waterproof trench or a jacket, an umbrella, a hat, scarf, leather gloves, shoos that withstand water and mud, warm socks, thermal undergarments for extra cold days.
    In a winter wear really warm jacket, winter boots ( advisably with soft fluffy stuff on the inside for more warmth and thick bottoms), warm sweater, fur hat, woolen scurf, woolen socks, really warm gloves, thermal undergarment is a mast. Stay away from cotton clothes, it does not keep you warm. All of this because you'll be exposed to the weather for long periods of time while walking, waiting, searching.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring your own medicine, which is labeled in a language you understand. Do not rely on translation of medical instructions from Russian to English by Good Samaritans. They might wish you the best, but be mistaken.
    Carry toilet paper with you in case public bathroom ran out of it, or you ran out of change.
    In Lutugino public bathroom is located right next to a central fresh produce market, which is behind the store called Europe on Lenin Street.
