Here in White Sea, all sea flora and fauna appear in all their glory in unusually crystal water, with 50 meters visibility, and all of it happens under arches and vaults of ice, forming fantastic and surrealistic forms.


Russian visa regulations make Russian visas ones very hard-to-get. We try to simplify the travellers' lives provding some information about it in the Visa section of our site and Russian Visa service. But that's not the half of the story. Among other formalities to do and documents to fill there is a migration card you should fill and keep it till the moment you leave the country.


Baikal Lake is a place on the Earth which does not need a special introduction. There are a few things you should know to make your voyage safe and comfortable


The white nights, or nightless nights, phenomenon of high latitudes, when darkness harly falls because the sunsets are too late and sunrises too early is to be observed in such Russian regions and cities as Cherepovets, Vologda, Magadan, Petrozavodsk, Yakutsk, Vorkuta, Arkhangelsk, Severodvinsk and many others. Moreover, there is the polar day in some of them (Murmansk, Norilsk and Vorkuta). However, there is the only one city, associated with the white nights so strongly: St. Petersburg.


Here are some details of daily rent of apartments in Moscow, which is something between booking a hotel and long-term renting. Such service as daily rent of apartments exists in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan and other cities, and the fact that tourists and business travellers choose it indicates its advantages over hotels and hostels. As for Moscow, the main advantage is obvious variation in prices. As soon as daily rent is a special service, I describe its special features in terms of Moscow.


The Russians always try to go abroad on their holidays. Some foreigners suppose that there are some things to see and do do there and go to Russia. The variety of travelling possibilities is really wide, from sightseeing in Moscow to the flight on MIG-29 to the frontiers of atmosphere and space. The prices vary from 3, 5 thousands USD to positive infinity. According to the sources, the foreign tourists prefer Bailkal, Trans-Siberian Railway, Kamchatka and Kurily Islands, Cold Pole and such services like military tourism, exotic of Russian village, in complex with hunting and fishing, and everything tied with space flights.


Next to the ordinary registered taxi companies, there is a plenty of not official taxis in Moscow. They call them bombilas.You can take it doing like a hitcher, but not in the street and not on the highway. They are considerably cheaper, but we do not recommend anybody and especially foreigners, to command their services. There are a few reasons not to do it and now I am going to specify which ones, telling a story, happened to one my colleague.


Booking a taxi, as well as an apartment, in many countries is often easy, safe and cheap. Still, lots of foreigners come across problems when ordering a taxi in Russia.


Hunting and fishing are traditional Russian leisure activities, but many foreign tourists find them exotic like a flight on the MIG-29. Such services also cost much. The tour costs from 3, 000 euro, without cost of the flight and accommodation in the hotel. The tour operators provide different services, in order to the guests could feel themselves like the Russian counts and princes: they can try themselves in hawking (sport of kings), hunting with hounds of venery and the Russian wolfhounds. The hunting and fishing tours take place in different exotic regions. For example, fishing on the Baikal Lake or bear hunting on Kamchatka compose exotic tour to place and exotic activity.


Some people prefer spending their vacations and holidays in the hotels on the first line with nothing to do except sunbathing, swimming and lying next to swimming pool with a cocktail. Some evenings they devote to sightseeing excursions. Others cannot be satisfied with it and cannot imagine their leisure without breaking the routine of life, getting new skills and acquisition knowledge and the contact with nature, of course. There are no precise definitions of the adventure tourism, but it includes all that want the people who is bored by the hotels on the seashore. There is even no unified conception of what such tours should include, but no doubt, Russia is a wide field for activities and experiments in this type of tourism.


Bicycle touring in Russian has wide geography. You can ride along the tundra of Kola Peninsula, or in the mountains of Caucasus, Altai or Urals. In the Mari El Republic you will follow through the taiga. The bicycle touring trips are carried out in vicinity of Baikal Lake, which doesnt need presentation. There are also Golden Ring bicycle tours. The possibilities are wide as well, from the well-organized tour services different level of difficulty to trips organized by the clubs for bicycle touring everybody can find on the forums and join them or even create her/his own one. The operators services and club events differ in the categories of difficulty and length. There are also bicycle tours combined with a quest. We are going to mention some places and give some advices.


Renting an apartment in Russia, especially in Moscow and St. Petersburg, is a budget alternative of living in a hotel. The market of apartments for rent is very rich in various offers in both Russian capitals. The variety of the prices is considerable and even disorients at the first. But nevertheless it is possible, and you can do it promptly. Like everywhere all over the world, you find a flat which passes to you, command some renting agencys services or contact the owner directly at your own risk and peril and conclude a rental agreement.


After a few warm almost snowless winters we are finally having one looking like winter. It means that skiing and skating is possible again. Skating is one of the traditional Russian winter outdoor activities. The rinks appear again in the yards for skating and playing hockey. These are like for the private use of the people living in neighboring houses. There are also public open rinks in the centre of Moscow, where there are rental stores, check-room and related services like skates grinding. I tell you about some of them.


The 28th Russian Antique Salon opens in the Russian capital on the February, 27, 2010 and will continue till the March, 7, 2010. This regular selling exhibition, taking place twice a year has already become a traditional rendezvous for the antique dealers and classic art enthusiasts from Russia and abroad. As usually, it takes place in the Central House of Artists, Krymsky Val Stret, 10. Instead of the economy crisis, the previous Antique Salon passed and the organizers hope the same happens this time.


Tour operators, providing adventure, ecological, ethnographical tours, especially the winter ones, include the Russian baths into their services. The Russian traditional baths have a long history and combine washing with spa procedures like massage, conditioning and aromatherapy. When properly used, Russian baths can prevent some diseases and otherwise, it can do ill if used not properly. Consulting a doctor is anyway appropriate, because there are some contraindications.


Every country, disposing territories on the north like Finland, Sweden and Norway cannot help but offers reindeer safari among its winter tourist services. Russia is not exception. In Russia you can choose between Karelia, Murmansk Region, Yamal peninsula and so on along the north of the country down to Chukotka. And all the small peoples of the North living on this huge space use reindeer teams as traditional mean of transport. Each region has its own national color...


There are many skiing resorts in Russia in the highland regions. But you can find ski centers near Moscow. The Muscovites created them with a view to economy their time and maybe money. If you like snowboards and alpine skiing so much, this service is for you. In spite of the fact, that a true Russian winter seems to fall victim to global warming, there are some real skiing resorts and other places with special equipment like artificial snow making machines, lighting and rent-a-ski in Moscow and Moscow area, functioning all the winter season at any time of day. It is an optimal variant for the people, having a weekend on hands. Of course, they lose out to real skiing resorts in mountains in vertical drop and length of the ski slopes.


As it is known, the ethnological tourism is based on the interest of the public to the traditions of different peoples, mainly aboriginal ones, with their culture, customs and traditions and folk art. As far as Russia is a multiethnic and multicultural country, the possibilities for the ethnical tourism in Russia are very wide.


Ecotourism becomes more and more popular in Russia. It s no wonder. The cultural and environmental heritage of the country is so very rich and various, that Russia can be called one of the most promising countries for the development of the ecotourism.


The most outstanding feature of Russia is its size and distances. The best way to feel the distances is walking. Consequently, walking tourism, or hiking is the most optimal type of tourism for experiencing the specific character of the country. The tour operators could offer you a big variety of walking tours in Russia, depending on the region and season. Forests and mountains, summer and winter trips, one-day and long tours different difficulty level are provided by them. Moreover, it is healthier, than traditional tourism with visiting big cities and their superfits.
