    Has anyone been to Russia recently?

    Dear Sir

    I would very much like to visit Russia, and in particular St Petersburg, in my motor caravan in the summer of 2016 as part of a trip around the Baltic Sea which I am planning. Currently I would seek to enter by the Estonian Border and leave by the Finnish Border and stay in Russia for 7-10 days.

    Can you tell me if this would present any difficulties and what travel documents I would need?

    if your reason to visit and you present a case to the embassy for your visit out with a valid travel agent you should be ok.
    the burocresay to work there is a pane but with recent event's in the Balkans thing may be different it may be very hard to get a visa I would start now with the application
    to be Shur

    That's a trip we are planning but keep putting off due to political issues in the region. Putin is pretty much readying the country for war. annexing the ukraine is likely just the start plus them deliberately destabilising the middle east by funding assad in syria. not a good time to be a foreigner in russia and not on the usual holiday tours.
    Its not the locals though, as they are friendly on the whole with an interesting culture. the pre revolution architecture is phenomenal so well worth experiencing. just not for a couple of years, maybe when putin has gone
