Things Russians don’t do

It can also be managed through the authorized private company Central Russian Visa, which has offices in both cities, is somewhat more expensive, but the procedures can be done online and by mail.

Another mandatory document is the visa support or letter of invitation, which is processed by an individual or company from Russia, in this case it must be requested directly to the hotel.

Trip to russia

What are the most common myths you know about Russia? I am sure that each of you will remember many of them: people drinking a lot of vodka, bears in a very cold climate, etc. But this has nothing to do with reality.

Keep in mind that, in St. Petersburg, due to (often strong) winds and humidity, it usually feels a few degrees colder than the thermometer shows. It is also typical for the weather to change sometimes during the day. So, even in summer, take some light jackets with you and don’t forget your umbrella.

You can buy a local prepaid chip (if you have an unlocked phone). The main mobile operators are MTS (MМТС) and Beeline (Билайн). Usually, for around 500 RUR ~ $8, you can get a package with internet and calls, which will be more than enough for a two-week trip.

The best way to get around the cities is by metro or Uber, so download the app in advance, as it is much cheaper to call an Uber than a regular cab, especially for a trip to/from the airport. You should keep in mind that most Uber drivers do not speak English. So try to call Uber from a place where it is easy to get through for you or from a restaurant or hotel, where you can ask the staff to speak to the driver. As an alternative to Uber, you can use GetTaxi or Yandex Taxi. Download all of them and compare prices before the trip.
