Planning your first trip to Russia can be a real challenge. There are the inevitable questions over itineraries; how many days should I spend in Moscow vs. Saint Petersburg, and what time of year is best to go? There are practicalities to consider such as how to travel around the country and what an average meal costs so you can work out a travel budget. And there are so many questions about safety and general behavior and the seemingly impenetrable language barrier.

Don’t panic! Pour yourself a cup of strong black tea with lemon as Russians usually do and sit back to enjoy this informative and stress-busting seminar, led by Russia-based expert and Context Learning speaker Vadim Malinovsky.

Learn about such things as Russian visa and currency; what advantages do cruisers have; what to visit except Moscow and Saint Petersburg; how to travel around Russia (by rental car, train or plane); how to behave at Russian Orthodox Churches or on visiting a Russian home; how to stay connected by your smartphone or computer; what to discuss with Russians what is better not to do.

Led by historian Vadim Malinovsky, this interactive seminar aims to answer most, if not all, of your Russia travel queries. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away confident of a successful premier adventure in the world’s largest country by land area.

Great travel planning trips!

Vadim gave us great tips that will definitely be helpful in planning our trip to Russia. He covered things from the tourist highlights to costs.
He had suggestions for what to see and do for trips of varying lengths as well as various forms of transport such as cruises.
His tips ranged from general safety tips to specific tips such as which class of train seat to book.
Everything was presented in an engaging manner as if you were chatting with a friend who wants you to get the most out of your trip.
I would highly recommend this seminar to anyone planning a trip to Russia!
