圣彼得堡的邮轮乘客

For many people (myself included) visiting St. Petersburg was the primary motivating factor for booking my北欧巡航。It’s a city that enchants from afar like no other but it’s also a destination that will be unlike most any other port you’ve ever visited on a cruise. So if you’re arriving by游轮在“白色之城”,这里就是你需要知道,你应该准备什么使您的访问的。

您将每一个你离开的时间和返回办理护照控制你的船

Unlike at ports in the Caribbean and everywhere else in Europe, before you can officially enter Russia you have to pass through passport control. This means stopping at a booth while your passport is examined and ultimately stamped. If it’s your first time leaving the ship, you will also be given a Russian entry visa which is turned back in on the return trip through passport control. It goes without saying to make sure the Russian entry visa is in a safe place at all times. I’m pretty sure it would be a huge nightmare if you were unable to produce it. The second I passed through passport control (for my evening port excursion), it took a lot less time and no Russian entry visa was given out. And only one person at a time goes through passport control. Regardless of your being married or not, officers were somewhat anal about this, in a not so friendly fashion.

你并不需要一个俄罗斯签证,如果你通过你的邮轮预订观光活动

当旅行到俄罗斯人需要签证,如果通过空气到达进入。如果通过到达cruise,你并不需要拿到签证,只要你通过你的邮轮预订观光活动。你的口游览票(其中您的邮轮线路提供给你)基本上是作为你的签证;一旦在护照控制,这是什么赋予你的实际俄入境签证。如果你没有一个端口游览票,你是不是被允许通过俄罗斯移民,期。

有,但是,旅游公司由俄罗斯政府的认可,你可以通过它预订一个私人旅游,基本上看圣彼得堡你自己,而不必购买签证的选择数量。阿纳斯塔西娅旅游是一个公司,很多人对我巡航订用。

乘坐地铁如果有机会

这不是第一次活动大部分旅客会觉得访问一个新的城市的时候,但圣彼得堡metros从美和建筑的角度见着。所以,当它来到的时间来规划我的定制行程为我的私人旅行,我要求我们参观Avtovo站,这确实是一个惊人的杰作。我们的导游取得的经验,甚至更整洁,因为我们得到了乘坐地铁的几站。我们骑着新车(今年的世界杯,俄罗斯主办建),但就个人而言,我会在老派风格的人首选骑马。

I found it extremely interesting to see all of the Soviet Union/Communist icons that were featured prominently in the stations. I would later learn that most were constructed at the height of the Soviet Union’s power in the 1950s and 1960s. This will be truly be one of the neatest and definitely most authentic of Russian experiences while there.

It costs more but book a private tour

Even though I was limited to booking a tour excursion through Disney if I were to get off the ship in St. Petersburg, there was no way in HELL I was going to do some 50 person group excursion for a city I had dreamt about visiting my entire life. So for the first time after taking eight cruises, I booked a private car which included both the driver and our guide/translator. It was quite pricey, but it was one set price for everyone; a sedan could fit three people and there was also the option of booking a van, which I saw larger families doing.

该真棒(拥挤)水喷泉表演在彼得霍夫。

How it worked with Disney Cruise (and I’m assuming other cruise lines are the same) is that you select the places you’d like to visit ahead of time and your itinerary is then scrutinized by the overseas company that handles the booking to see whether it’s feasible or not. By booking a private tour I could see everything that I wanted to, no disappointments of having to pick that “one thing” to see while in port if I were to have booked a group excursion. I got to see everything from Peterhof Palace to two of St. Petersburg’s most famous churches to riding the metro.

而对于角度来看,它的成本更低预订八小时私家车在圣彼得堡超过四个小时的一个在斯德哥尔摩(我最终没有这样做)。

不要小看人群

Granted I was visiting during the summer and on a weekend day no less, but I was still taken aback by the sheer volume of crowds at the many popular tourist spots such as Peterhof Palace, St. Isaac’s Cathedral, and the Church of the Savior on Blood. St. Petersburg can receive countless ships into its harbors on the same day, everything from smaller vessels (ferries, river cruises) to large cruise ships. On the day we were there, there were three cruise ships in port in addition to one river cruise and a large ferry.

该线要经过安全性在彼得霍夫发了疯;这显然不利于事宜时,散客要排队背后的大集团。值得庆幸的是我们的导游问她搭档谁带领一大群如果我们能在他们面前的权利去和她同意了。其中该组中的旅客告诉我们,我们是幸运的,因为他说,他的研究小组一直在等待了两个小时。我的建议是开幕前到达很好。

也可以这样说,归隐。我结束了预订私人旅游,让我经常小时后,用一小团参观在晚上。这是理想的,因为它让我避免人等着白天得到过长的线路。你可以在网上购买门票。你会不会来个傻瓜。

Be sure to try the food & drink

我知道,游船的一个常见的问题是,你不必在港口有足够的时间在当地文化真正浸泡,即在食品的方式。您在港时间太短,你要么不结束尝试任何的当地美食,或者你无疑在一些价格过高,非正宗的餐馆有几十其他游客沿着告终。

俄罗斯肯定是要尝试至少一些当地的美食特别是因为在大多数美国城市(记住,我写这篇博客作为美国)的国家,俄罗斯的餐馆都不会过于丰富。为了怕你认为俄罗斯食品包括什么,但鱼子酱和罗宋汤。我对你-pelmini,俄罗斯风格的饺子一个字。这些配有各种馅料,包括牛肉和羊肉。然后当然还有酱牛肉,一盘菜那是在大多数美国家庭一个共同的夹具,但完全是俄罗斯的起源,因为它是由世纪中叶,19一计数酱牛肉背开发那里。

当我在那里我有牛肉pelmini的美味的午餐,然后对我来说是新盘,pirozhki,俄罗斯酥皮这在我的情况下是一个美味的一种(也可以是甜的)。d确实有酱牛肉,虽然我们在俄罗斯发现,酱牛肉配土豆泥,面条不作为是美国的情况。至于甜食,我们尝试了薄饼,俄罗斯风格的煎饼,这是我一直听说(即从阅读了有关俄罗斯移民岁月足够的历史科幻小说)。

当然还有伏特加酒,喝醉了由鄙人。

圣彼得堡is an amazing city, of all the cities I’ve visited in the world, it blows my mind to think of how much it has witnessed in its relatively short existence (as European cities go) since it wasn’t founded until the 18th century. I look forward to the day when I can return and explore in so much greater detail and depth.
