Q & A

    Maybe spend less nights in St. Petersburg. And add some time outside of cities to explore countryside

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Make sure to apply for your Visa in time, otherwise it can get very expensive.

    We were not big fans of the Russian kitchen, so we went to a lot international places.

    Get a sim card there. Its super cheap

  • Packing tips?

    T-shirts with a thin jacket and long jeans.

  • Transportation Tips?

    We took a night train from Moscow to St. Petersburg. it was an awesome experience, because there were all kinds of people on the train and not a lot european tourists.

    We found more russian people who spoke german than english.

Lodging

  • Strawberry Duck Hostel Typical hostel, clean and nice kitchen area.

  • Cuba Hostel St. Petersburg. A little chaotic and not so inviting and clean
