Tribunal Bar: Horza Plenty

Whores a-plenty. This seedy little bar is where I went with two other Westerners just after our car crash. I'd never been here before.

I don't know what the vibe is here. Its not full at all, but there are dodgy-looking devushki eyeing up the Western notecases stuffed with green. There are some stripper-type dancers (male and female) and its quite a sad atmosphere in general. The beer is overpriced but the vodkas are reasonable.

Sometimes there is a cover charge - it seems arbitrary. I made the mistake of taking a date there once but actually she kind of deserved it in a way! My advice is to avoid unless you really do want an overpriced lady of negotiable affection.

Dress Code Shirt recommended.

Tsirk: Russian Circus

When I visited Spain several years ago, I wanted to see a bullfight. Between Hemingway's romanticism and the gorgeous art of the posters, I was able to put out of my mind the violence involved. . .until it actually came to buying a ticket and I backed out.

Much the same thing happened with the St. Petersburg circus ~ I thought I wanted to go (it is the country's oldest, with renowned acrobatic acts). . .but chickened out at the last minute, due to the probability of seeing (and supporting through my purchase) cruel treatment of animals.

But, if you aren't bothered by such thoughts. . .they have evening performances and matinees on the weekend (note that the circus closes for six weeks during the summer).
