Eating out in St. Petersburg? There are very many possibilities, from cheap restaurants and eating-houses to the luxury restaurants. Usually, luxury hotels aren't a usual tourist's choice. At the same time, very few things are so important as eating out for a tourist in a foreign city. St. Petersburg, the northern capital of Russia, is rich in good budget restaurants and reasonably priced cafes. Prices for food in St. Petersburg distinguish in the whole from Moscow ones for the better.


Last time on TV and on internet many people in Russia discpurse of the reasons why foreign tourists come to Russia not so often as they could and as the tour operators wanted. The state invests money into tour infrastructure to draw tourists from Europe, but the output leaves something to be desired. It is told much about bad infrastructure, lack of information at least in English about Russia, high hotel prices and high crime rate. But others, and among them is Larisa Zazulina chief operating officer of one large tour operator are sure, that the problem is the only one. It is called Russian visa.


Railway excursions belong to tour services, demonstrating Russian specific character in very impressive way. The most famous Russian railway tour is certainly a journey on the Trans-Siberian Railroad. But it is not the only one.

The world famous lake of Baikal has recently become very popular among freedivers. Of course, Baikal is worth visiting for plenty of reasons, but now the people go there for deep virgin snow and very long slopes.

It is not a secret, that Russian hotels are inclined to be either luxury, or awful, even in the Golden Ring Cities. Moreover, amount of stars does not always correspond with level of services provided in the hotel. That's why hotels of world famous brands are very actual for travellers, especially foreigners, because such brands are already something to rely on. Although they are not cheap, they are something familiar. It can be very important in absolutely strange country. There is some information about hotels of Hilton Worldwide on the territory of Russia.
