5 Russian Movies to Watch (Comedy) – A good way for improving your language (only for intermediate)

Many have said that to fully immerse yourself in a language, you need to try to comprehend their way of thinking. But, to understand their way of thinking, first of all, you need to speak their language. Like it or not, you can’t deny that learning a language of your destination country, especially if you plan to stay there longer than any normal tourists will ever do, is as important as the air itself. Learning the local language will not only help you in daily life situations, but also will help you adapt better and faster, reducing homesickness that sometimes attacks you out of the blue. One…

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…

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.

Strolling Around St. Petersburg – Day 2, Time for museums!

Cities in Russia are compact. This means you don’t need a month or a year to discover the most interesting places on your list. But still, as everybody’s taste is different, especially regarding their favorite places, it is generally a good idea to spend more time in one city.

Strolling Around in St. Petersburg – Day 1

St. Petersburg is not only famous for its old architecture and its museums, but also for its bridges that spread across the city. Wherever you go, wherever you look, you will quickly find that you are never far from a bridge.  And they are of all kinds: narrow, broad, long, short, stone, cast-iron, hanging, or flap. I myself don’t have a special interest in bridges, but bridge "buffs" would be in their element. If you want to see one of these bridges in action, look at the nearest bridge to your hotel and watch a boat passing underneath. A  beautiful sight, but remember, you'll need to wake…
