Vyborg in a Day!

Vyborg in September Judging by its name, some might guess that Vyborg is a town in Sweden or Denmark, some even carelessly assume that it isn’t even a town, but rather some kind of android developed by a high-tech company (I did). Yet, those assumptions are incorrect. Even though the first one was not a bad guess.Back to the year 1293, Vyborg was a part of the Kingdom of Sweden until Peter the Great seized the town. Vyborg castle or Viipurin Linna in Finnish and Viborg Slott in Swedish that still stands elegantly on a small island in the town has witnessed how the story went during…

King Boko Ruins

Written by: Sri Lestari If someone were to ask me about the best historical places to visit in Yogyakarta, Borobudur and Prambanan are certainly the first things that would come to mind. However, on my recent visit, I was enchanted by dozens of other places as well. One of the places I never thought of was King Boko ruins. My actual plan was to see nearby attractions the first day I arrived. So, I thought Prambanan had to be a good choice as it only took 25 minutes to travel there from where I was staying. When trying to buy a ticket for my Prambanan adventure, the…

Lost in Art

Becoming an art aficionado, or even an artistic person, has never been a goal in my life. Since my early childhood, I was not inclined to artistry, despite the fact that my grandfather was a very talented artist with the ability to draw as good as Picasso.

I have saved it and proudly take it with me to Russia, by the way. After a long time of having little to do with art, I…

Feeling Under the Weather in Russia

Spring is always inspiring and invigorating. During the springtime our body starts to react differently. It's as if the energy that was previously “boiled away” during the winter suddenly rose to its peak. The brighter the sun shines, the happier we feel. The greener the grass, the more itchy feet we have. It’s just too hard to stay at home working like a dog when it is too sunny to be true outside, isn’t it? What we want to do is just sit in the sun, lying on the grass and sipping some coke as company. We don’t even care that the wind might still be as…

Proses Pengurusan Visa Turis

Seperti mayoritas negara pada umumnya, Rusia juga menyediakan berbagai jenis visa yang bisa kita ajukan, mulai dari visa turis, visa kerja, hingga visa undangan. Proses pengurusannya juga tidak sesulit negara-negara bervisa lainnya. Dokumen yang diperlukan juga tidak setebal disertasi untuk S3. Jadi, selain nggak bikin abang-abang tukang fotokopi kaya, proses pengurusan visa ke Rusia juga nggak bikin kita botak dalam seketika. Sebelum mengajukan visa ke kedutaan, agaknya kita perlu bahas lebih dulu jenis-jenis visa, yang ditawarkan Rusia. Visa Turis Durasi visa turis di Rusia umumnya sama seperti negara lain, yaitu 30 hari. Nggak lebih, nggak kurang, dan nggak boleh nawar. Tapi, ada satu perbedaan yang amat mencolok…
