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.

Wondering where to travel? If you like to travel by car, one of the interesting routes in the northwest of Russia is a trip around Lake Ladoga.
The length of the route on the map is about 800 km. The road runs through the Leningrad region and the territory of the Republic of Karelia. You definitely want to deviate from the shortest routes to visit interesting places, and therefore your actual route will be a little longer.
The notes and photos on this page were taken in the summer of 2020.
There are many interesting cities in Russia. Moscow and St. Petersburg is not all that needs to be seen in Russia. I will tell you what I saw during my trip to Veliky Novgorod.
(On this page, information about my trip to Veliky Novgorod, do not confuse with Nizhny Novgorod.)
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.
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.
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).
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
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.
Paris is the most publicized city in the world. We have long had a desire to visit Paris. But we did not have sometimes free time sometimes money. Circumstances have pushed realize this desire. Short about the short trip on this page: St Petersburg - Paris.
How to visit Paris?
Everyone knows the main attractions of St. Petersburg. But this is only a small part of the city. In the central part of the city there are many buildings do not stand out. A lot of new buildings are on the outskirts of the city. New buildings are changing face of the city.
