There has never been a better time to visit Russia..
« on: March 11, 2016, 11:34:12 AM »
Moscow and St Petersburg have gone down considerably in the most expensive cities in the world to visit.

http://rbth.com/news/2016/03/11/moscow-exits-list-of-worlds-top-100-most-expensive-cities_574853

We used to pay about 3500 roubles on the Sapsan express train Pitter to Moscow, booked this week to spend a few days in Moscow for 1650 roubles each way 500 roubles for the little one , just £100 return for four of us   :thumbsup:

Yes, but you don't need a Visa for Ukraine and Russia is evil.

Besides, not as many Russian women on adate.

There has never been a better time to visit Russia..

Now we have a visa centre in Manchester  ;D  and with the Rouble being favourable to the Pound, we are going in a couple of months to Moscow for a long weekend. With the folks travelling up from Samara to say hello. As you do......

My 11 year old lad is coming with us, it will be his first time in Russia. Wifey has found some flights on Finnair that are so cheap they seem almost free, with a shiny new visa centre down the road, the Rouble being such good value, and spiffing cheap flights, it would be rude not to......

Its been a while since I stood on Red Square. I'm looking forward to doing so again. Might even pop into the Russia Insider offices to have a coffee and say hello.
