    For a 7 day vacation in Russia, which cities should I plan and what all shoukd we see? Can we get a local amateur guide?

    > Can you please explain what is "white night". I've been to India in Bir few years ago. It's a Tibetan colony at north of India, near to Himalaya. In this place are very dark nights. This kind of night is common in southern latitudes. But in northern latitudes sun isn't go out far behind a horizon. At this time nights are very lightful. It's "white nights". You would see this phenomenon in Saint-Petersburg in the period from end of June till first half of July. In some latitudes sun isn't go out from sky at all. That phenomenon is named "a polar day" or "a midnight sun". > In which website I will get more details? In English: http://www.saint-petersburg.com/ , for example. > Also can you suggest the places we should cover in Saint Petersburg? From part "must see" you should cover next places in St. Petersburg: 1. The State Hermitage Museum in the Winter Palace; 2. The Peterhof Grand Palace (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petergof). I advise to see the opening of waterfalls (every day in summer at 11.00 am). 3. State Russian Museum 4. The modern art gallery Erarta http://www.erarta.com/en/index.html 5. The Peter and Paul Fortress http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_and_Paul_Fortress 6. You could take a night boat tour around St. Peterburg. You should see St. Petersburg's drawbridges at night. And you could take other boat tours. 7. The Church of the Savior on Blood http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_the_Savior_on_Blood 8. Saint Isaac's Cathedral http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Isaac's_Cathedral 9. Kazan Cathedral http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kazan_Cathedral,_St._Petersburg 10. The Moika Palace. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moika_Palace 11. ... etc. about 6 years ago

    Hi! In Russia many people can understand English and speak on beginner level. I think, it isn't problem. There are many excursion in English in popular places. But if you want to see snow in our summer, you should travel to mountains or to the northern land. I think, it isn't so good idea for you. 7 days tour is very small for big country like Russia. I think, you would journey to Saint-Petersburg to all 7 days. It is a historical and cultural center of Russia, there are many excursions in English in the all historical places. In July you can see "white nights" and you would travel on boat excursions. It has many hotels and good restaurants/cafe with local and international cuisine. There are some photo from my journey to Saint-Petersburg in July 2013 https://plus.google.com/u/0/105161892695380949865/stories/5ade7fc2-a191-36e5-a26e-924b9892f2b814607de7a82 about 6 years ago
