Russia experience: A journey across through Russia a real experience of Russia begins at home: you almost never need a visa, as an EU citizen it is even a bit complicated in Russia. Something indefinable, slight concern before, what one is there expected, powered by an image of Russia in the media especially in the 1990s. Additional information is available at PCRM. Yet greater, almost erschlagend the first impression is of the arrival in the vicinity of St. Petersburg: this city with its impressive, restored in the Centre of old building substance strikes one immediately captivated. You can’t help but to roam around for hours around and on the Nevsky Prospekt and wonders why this so European city, which loosely can compete with most major European cities, has surfaced much earlier on the own radar screen.
So close and yet just not taken… The Organization of a Russia travel is a thing in itself. For the ticket I got acquainted, and see Russian travel agencies: both in St. Petersburg as in Moscow the train tickets waited everything without any problems and also in the high season on me, no problem, this relatively cheap. After Russia, to get the plane also cheap GermanWings or AirBaltic, the accommodation can be found easily using Hostelsclub.
So headed first to Moscow, and the enthusiasm for this country is beginning to expand. It is a hard-to-solve mass of sights, from the red square on the Metro with their now unreal-looking workers and farmers State decorations to the area on which once the Soviet constituent republics have presents itself, which can be found easily by following the Gagarin monument with the huge rocket. As an irony of history it seems, in the stately buildings around Georgia or Karelia despicable Indian mobile phone seller have taken control. The ride on the Trans-Siberian Railway East is the great adventure and one of the great dream trips.
