The other day I published an article about the St. Petersburg metro: there I share my observations on how the behavior of people in the metro has changed in comparison now and 10 years ago, when I just moved to St. Petersburg Petersburg (traditionally, the link is at the end of the article) And the […]


Over the 10 years of my life in St. Petersburg, people in the metro have become different: apparently, visitors are not explained how to behave

I have been living in St. Petersburg for about 10 years, and I am still considered a «visitor». Yes, I moved from another city in Central Russia, and «grown together» with St. Petersburg. Perhaps that is why I am a little more reverent about how visitors behave. I was taught from childhood: " they don't […]

WHello, dear friends! Here we all scold, scold our health care, but if you think about it: we do so much quickly and for free! Yes, employers or insurance companies pay for you — but you don't have to pay a bill in the hospital! I agree that there are a lot of questions about […]

To visit Petrozavodsk and not to visit Kizhi, I think, would be a crime. Moreover, in summer it is easy to get to the island, and literally every tourist in Karelia visits there. In winter, no — rare birds fly to the island! (c) Tourists, respectively, too. A unique, one might say, opportunity! When the […]


Northern answer to Essentuki and MinVodyam: the first resort in Russia Marcial Waters — in Karelia!

Just remember the classics — all the heroes went to the waters for treatment, some to Paris, and some to the Caucasus. But not everyone knows that in the north of our country there is a balneological and mud resort — Marcial Waters in Karelia. Moreover, it is the oldest! It was founded in 1718 […]


The rights of passengers in Russian Railways, which few people use because they do not know

Ilove to ride the train. Trains are predictable and independent of the weather; as a rule, you can lie down or walk around with your legs stretched. There is more freedom, and interesting people come across. There were no oddities and adventures on Russian trains — except for once, when boarding a train at 3 […]
