RE: The Russia Thread
Just got a bang 30 minutes ago. Girl left quickly. Read about it here:

https://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-11951...pid1248208

Question: Girl was born in Uzbekistan and lived there for 10 years but is a Slav. Is this a flag? I'm kind of thinking it is not.

@trainwreck: I was reading your question as it pertains to Russia as a whole. You are probably correct about nightlife not being that big in Saint Petersburg. It is just how I interpreted the question. From my Experience Saint Petersburg has two nights, Friday and Saturday.

Reason why I even bother writing this up is that 99% of you guys will be too lazy to get yourselves a visa. But in case you go through with it, good lord...

Not true, getting a visa is the easy part ( a day of prep work and a 1 hour visit to the Visa processing center in Washington, DC) and I got my 3 year multi-entry visa last year, alas getting to use it is something completely else. Sometimes I regret the day I signed up to work for a large Western corporation in Banking/IT... even getting 2 weeks off is nothing short of a miracle.

Girls are expected to be late. If you've been kept waiting for less than half an hour, there's no reason for them to apologise.

But you should always be on time.

Yeah... not necessarely the fact of only getting a visa. It's also airfare, taking time off, etc. That's why low season like right now where it's cold but not too ball freezing cold anymore, is the best time to go imo. Cheap + rare specimen effect

RE: The Russia Thread
Alright, I leave in T-29 days and counting. Anything I should do as last steps so I'm totally prepared for a 30 day trip to Siberia?

Specifically, any recommendations on:

how much luggage is generally appropriate
any key phrases that I should know, specifically in a pick up context
any peculiarities about what to wear I should know about
specific situations to avoid / to gravitate to

Any advice appreciated

Like Roosh I also have Persian roots and sport long beard. This point is very true. I did night game for a week in Rostov-on-Don last summer. And I was grabbing girls in night club left, right and centre.

My Iranian face never was a problem. Because Rostov has a high population of Armenians, Georgian and Azeri community (where my father is coming from). However, long beard was definitely a head turner

Do you know any other Russian cities with a high population of people from the caucasus region?

2- Sochi
3- Volgograd

Haha! You really got me! tard


EDIT: Seriously though, can anyone give a breif summary answer, without resorting to passive aggressive sarcasm like homosexuals and Chaos usually do? I already have read the entire thread and studied Russian for 11 months, but maybe I've missed something important that one of you could point out to me. Anyway, thanks in advance for your help, if you're one of the helpful ones.

RE: The Russia Thread
I'm considering a 4 weeks Russia trip. I would like to stay at one place for 1 or 2 weeks to have intensive language class (I'm not a beginner) then travel for the rest of the time.

Travel agencies that provide language classes and accommodation seem very expensive to me, like 1070€ for two weeks in Moscow or Peter.

Does anyone know of a good alternative?

Like how expensive are group classes or private teachers in 2nd or 3rd tier cities like Rostov, Volgograd, Ufa or Nizhny Nowgorod? Do you think I would spend significantly less in those places organizing shit for myself than using the standard agencies?

As for accomodation, I wouldn' mind staying with a host family for the first week.

RE: The Russia Thread
What are your exact expactations regarding an intensive language class?

I ask because if you are fully aware of what do you want to get accomplished, then you could also book a private teacher and live in an Airbnb flat. On forenoon you do you classes and in the afternoon you can enjoy the city. Agencies are for sure more expensive.

What I would do is to mass-message teacher on italki and ask how much they would charge for an one-2-one lesson with a time span of two weeks. Watch out that you only message teacher with there location set on Moscow and that they are professional teachers. Professional teachers have to upload their certificates and stuff on italki to legitimate themselves.

Maybe they will tell you that they can only in the evening hours because they have to work but are really keen to help you and earn some money on the side.

Have you checked out Liden & Denz?

We have a forum member who took a language course in Belarus and lived during that time in a dorm. I'm not sure but I think it was "The-Linguarian". Contact him... On a different blog I also read that Belarus is the cheapest place in regards of learning the russian language, check it out here: http://haraldbaldr.com/top-5-cheapest-pl...an-abroad/

Hope I could help!

How about dating an English(?) teacher in a second tier city? If you are traveling through Russia you will most likely bump into those girls anyway.

I would not generally recommend hooking up with them, but if your biggest priority is to learn the language. Then why not.

RE: The Russia Thread
Where do you guys prefer to stay in Moscow?

I'm currently looking for an apartment for the summer months, and having been before, I'm looking for something around Gorky Park area/Park Kultury metro area.

Right now - I have a very good offer on a place next to Tverskaya, thinking about this as an option too.

Big city, things are a bit spread out - but accessible by metro of course. What's the opinion on best areas to stay?

There is some good advice on this from the Moscow vets if you use the search function, but the consensus is that you can't go wrong within the garden ring.

What's a good offer for Tverskaya? I stayed there last year and I liked it because of proximity to parks for daygame and it's walking distance to a few decent clubs.

I'm trying to do some planning for my Summer travel and looking for a place with lots of average Russian tourists as possible targets.

With Egypt and Turkey out of mix currently anybody have any idea where they might end up going to get some Sun ?
I was thinking like maybe Nha Trang (no visa), Thailand or Goa ?

I think the 100% secure russian hotspots are Barcelona and Tenerife.

Ayia Napa in Cyprus is also good. Plenty of young Ukrainians, Russians and Belarusians Banana

Reverze41, my favorite part of Moscow is Khamovniki. It's slightly outside (just one subway station) from the busy central area. Plus its located on the side of Moscow River opposite the Gorky Park that you can reach in minutes by crossing the Andreev bridge. The local embankment has been recently renovated and lots of people come here to rollerblade, jogg and so on during the summer months.
Luzhniki stadium with it's swimming pool, gym, street workout area is just minutes away. At the same time this place is very close to all the night clubs, restaurants and so on.. I think its the best neighborhood in the city. Really.
Here are some pics from my I phone.

Krasnodar. I also have a datasheet on it.
Krasnodarskiy Kray is actually where Caucasus mountains start.

2 out of 3 people in Pattaya were speaking English.
I went in one of this fish SPAs with my Thai girl there were 6 tanks. In 5 other tanks there was only Russian speech.
I stopped a girl on a street to ask to make a picture of us. She did not understand. I tried again in Russian, no problem.

Pattaya is your obvious choice!

@2011mckinsey Nice pics. It looks like you levitated to take them though Smile
