Submitted by Serg A Nik on Thu, 03/11/2021 - 10:38

If you asked me what a good but inexpensive restaurant I would recommend on Nevsky Prospekt in St. Petersburg, I would say Sirtaki.

The Greek tavern "Sirtaki" is located on Nevsky Prospect, at a distance of 200 meters from the Vosstaniya Square.

Submitted by Serg A Nik on Fri, 09/18/2020 - 23:12

Turkey has been a very popular summer vacation destination for residents of many countries, including Russian citizens. But COVID-19 has changed the plans of all travel lovers. Turkey has become one of the few countries where Russian citizens could go on vacation in 2020. How it was - based on the personal experience of one of the regular readers of the site.


To Stockholm from St. Petersburg via Helsinki

Submitted by Serg A Nik on Wed, 10/30/2019 - 21:50

What is the best mode of transport to get to Stockholm? Airplane? A train? In my opinion, it is best to travel by sea, by ferry or by cruise ship. A trip on a comfortable boat is a pleasure in itself. I visited Stockholm recently by ferry.

I visited Stockholm for the first time many years ago. A good reason to make a trip to the capital of Sweden once again appeared with me recently. What is the reason? Cheap ferry tickets.

The second half of May is a great time to go on vacation - my trip to Marmaris

Submitted by Serg A Nik on Sat, 05/18/2019 - 17:48

The second half of May and the first week of June is one of the best times of the year to go on vacation somewhere cheap. Schoolchildren and students holidays not begun yet. Therefore, there are not so many tourists, and hotels, tickets and package tours prices are slightly lower than they will be in summer.

Where to go on vacation? The priority was a trip to the sea. I had to choose from relatively inexpensive options: the Black Sea coast (Sochi, Anapa, Crimea), Turkey, Greece, Cyprus, Spain.


Trip to Prague in December

Submitted by Serg A Nik on Tue, 01/08/2019 - 00:03

Summer is the best time to travel to Prague. But what to do if free time appeared at another time? For example, in December? Go to Prague, or not?

December is a good time to travel in Europe. Prague is very beautifully decorated for Christmas. In addition, a package tour to Prague before the New Year holidays can be bought at a fairly reasonable price (if you're lucky).


How to make money on travel

Submitted by Serg A Nik on Wed, 07/25/2018 - 19:42

Making money on your own travels is the dream of many young people. What can you still dream about? You visit different cities and countries, admire the sights, bathe in different seas and sunbathe on the best beaches. You share your experience (your joy) with other people (who sit at home and also want to travel) and get paid for it.

Is it real or not? Yes and no.

Yes, you can earn on your travel


Holiday on Vietnam

Submitted by Serg A Nik on Fri, 12/15/2017 - 20:46

Where to go on vacation in the winter, if you want to the sea, the sun and warm weather? The choice is pretty big. For example: Thailand, India, UAE, Cuba, Vietnam. Another resort in the tropical region appeared recently. This is the island of Hainan (China).

It is said that China compensates for their tour operators part of the cost of tourists transportation from Russia. This has led to the fact that the tour from St. Petersburg to the island of Hainan (Chinese resort island) can be purchased at a price much cheaper than the cost of a regular flight.
