What's your favorite FSU city to visit? Why?
You can list up to three places.
You can look at the poll results after you vote.
If I missed something or someplace let me know.

Moscow was ok, haven't been to St Pete heard it's nice, other Russian cities, Chel, Volgograd, some others I can't remember, merged into one, pretty grim, Kiev, wonderful.

My favourite City is York, in UK, coming from a Lancastrian that's high praise indeed, and before anyone gets on their high horse, my home town Bolton is a shiithole, and nearer Big City Manchester pretty dire too. Liverpool awful.

There are nice place and good places everywhere, even with the same city....

I picked Voronezh because of friends and family and not because of the
city itself. I picked Georgia (Tblisi) because of the food, the history and
that it was the most interesting place I've been. I chose St Pete for many
of the same reasons. If Angel Eyes wasn't from Voronezh then Odessa
would have made the list.

I liked the cities I've visited in Ukraine too but I self imposed only had
three votes and Odessa was my 4th choice. I loved the city but usually
recommend against newbies visiting there because of the MOB industry
and their total dedication of thinning your wallet. I haven't been to
Nikolaev but I make the same recommendation about there as well.

So, what say you?

Sochi - can't be a surprise - Sea, mountains, tree-lined streets, climate, craft beers, Formula 1, sailing ...... and of course VVP's playground

Piter.. You HAVE to see the Hermitage - wonderful art collection, visit the Mariisky Theatre - Balllet, Peterhof, Tsarskoe Selo ..

Siberia:  Lake Baikal is on my bucket list .... but memories of fast flowing Rivers steaming in -25C will never fade.

I picked 'somewhere else in Russia' because I like Evpatoria as a tourist resort and all my inlaws live there.
I picked St. Pete , because I think its beautiful there in winter... truly wonderful.

And I picked Kharkov, because its a very friendly city which oozes hospitality.

St Petersburg was my first choice and loved my time there during February. Too much to see.

Lviv were I was captivated with its architecture and friendly people. been there too many times.

Kiev the last one where I had great time and enjoyed the interesting places that I visited.

St Petersburg is my first choice. Took my daughters there during the month of July and would recommend it highly.

There is so much of the former Soviet Union that I would like to visit.

L'viv is my favourite of what I have seen, St. Petersburg is also magical. I remember going to Red Square before the Kremlin, amazing.

But I also would like to see Tbilisi and Lake Baikal and sail along the Black Sea. So this is a tough one.
