A Pakistani Tourist  (10 Answers)

Hi all
Hope you having good time
I'm planning to visit Kaliningrad this November (2015) as Its the only time off for me from my office for a week. one of my colleagues adores kaliningrad a lot compelled me to visit. but I have few questions anyone here would answer?
1) I'm an asian/Pakistani Brown skin guy, and honestly I ve been to many places around the world and found it bit weird to be in such place where people around you all are from a total different background stares you that annoy you and you do not enjoy your days off. so how's the local behavior towards brown skininned, single tourist on his own? (I'm really sorry if that sound offensive)
2)
I'm not a beach/club/pub/party kinda guy, rather trekking, landscapes, mountains, hiking alone, and discovering borders. So would it be easy to walk/trek alone in forests, mountains, fields, and wandering around the border area? having in mind that there are restricted areas for tourists. But I'd really love to visit and capture some snaps with the tri-point (lithuania-poland-and russia border.
Thank you all in advance

Entry and exit of Kaliningrad  (1 Answer)

Hello, I'm planning to visit Kaliningrad in july from Poland. I will only stay 1 night at Kaliningrad.

I want to go by bus Gdansk-Kaliningrad on Friday (I think that you can only pass the border during weekdays Mon-Fri) and return next day, Saturday, to Poland again by bus.

My questions are:

1.- Can I exit Kaliningrad to Gdansk on Saturday or only weekdays (Mon-Fri)?

2.- What about the safety in the city? Somebody say "be careful", others say "it's a safe city for tourists". What do you think?

Thank you very much and sorry for my English.

Arranging a Visa for UK Citizens visiting Kaliningrad by bus from Gdansk for 2-3 days  (5 Answers)

I am planning a trip to Kaliningrad from Gdansk, probably by bus. Plan to stay in Kaliningrad 3 nights maximum. I am a UK citizen. If I am travelling independently i.e. not with a tour company what is the best way to get a visa? We have previously travelled to Russia- St Petersburg but for a longer stay and organised our visas through the Russian consulate in Scotland. I am not sure whether visa arrangements are different for Kalinigrad / or this short stay. Please could someone advise me? Many thanks in anticipation.

Ferries!  (3 Answers)

Hi,
I've searched to no avail (probably badly...)afetr finding an oblique reference to this, but.....Is there a ferry at any time through the year from Kaliningrad to Copenhagen?

Failing this, a ferry to elsewhere? I enjoy overland (and water clearly!) travel so like making getting somewhere part of the experience.

Thanks for reading.

What to do in Kaliningrad  (4 Answers)

Hi - I'm off to Kaliningrad at the end of February (23 - 27), and i'm looking at things to do while I'm there. I've seen some decent museums, plus would love to spend some time at the Curonian spit. I've not heard much about what to do in the evenings though - does anyone have any suggestions? I also wondered if anyone had any ideas about what might be happening for Maslenitsa? Finally, has anyone heard of any ideas for adventure/extreme sports activities that happen out there? Am hoping to be able to change pace after a very cultural day!

Thanks!

Visiting Kaliningrad - bunch of questions..  (7 Answers)

Good day to you all
I was thinking about making my first visit to the Russian Federation by visiting Kaliningrad.
My plan was to get a train from Gdansk to Kaliningrad. From checking the net, i see that there are trains every morning at 6am and 8am. Is the train the better way to cross the border? As in, shorter waiting time then a bus?
I was thinking 2-3 days in Kaliningrad would be enough. Can anyone advise on this? I'm not really sure what there is to see in this mysterious area.
I'm big into history and historical architecture so if anyone can recommend stuff worth seeing in K. then i would be very happy.
Also, after visiting, i thought i might travel on by train from there to Lithuania. Can you tell me if there is a train to Klaipeda, Kaunas or Vilnius from K.?
Visa requirements, how much time should i give myself to apply for and receive my visa? I was thinking of travelling in the middle of August, so if i apply in the next 10 days, will that be enough time for all the red tape to be sorted?
I don't speak any Russian so i presume i will be at a huge disadvantage if/when i do cross into Kaliningrad.
Lastly, this might seem like a silly question, but is going to Kaliningrad just a bad idea and not worth the hassle?
I've never been to Russia so i honestly don't know what to expect. There is precious little info about Kaliningrad to be found in books or on the net from what i can tell
Thanks everyone
DG

Cycling in Kalingrad and beyond  (4 Answers)

Dear Sir/Madam,
Perhaps this is not the correct forum but I can find no other source of information!
I am an ancient cyclist and intend to cycle from Gdansk along the coastal route E10 to Tallin but what I would like to know is if I can go along the coast/spit through Russian into Lithuania? DO I NEED A VISA and if so from where do I obtain it?
Is there a way of just "turning up" and being able to pass along the coast? Or can I put my bike on a train/bus?
Thank you for helping me.

Kaliningrad day trip from Nida, Lithuania  (2 Answers)

This may seem like a silly question.. but is it possible to visit Kaliningrad from Lithuania on a day trip?

Looking at the Eurolines bus schedule; **Klaipeda LT - Kaliningrad, RU**

From Nida (LT) there is a bus that leaves at 8:09am and arrives in Kaliningrad (city) at 11:02am

Then in the same day there is a bus departing Kaliningrad (city) at 16:30 (4:30pm) arriving back to Nida at 19:28 (7:30pm)

In theory it looks possible..

but considering a three hour journey each way, only four hours to walk around the city, and the cost/hassle associated with a Russian visa and border formalities/delays.. etc.. Would this be worth the trouble?

Is it even possible to obtain a Russian visa and/or enter the country for just a few hours??

Are there any tour companies that offer a one day trip to Kaliningrad from Lithuania?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Many Thanks!
George

Border Crossings to/from Kaliningrad by car  (3 Answers)

Hi there !
Does anyone have updated information on waiting times and difficulties of border crossings from Lithuania into Kaliningrad (Curanian Spit) and exiting to Poland ? I have read stories of smugglers virtually blocking the RU/PL border. I am planning to pass thru on a 48 hours transit visa and I do not plan to spend those hours in a line at the border. ;)
How about going north thru Kaliningrad from Poland to Lithuania ?

Thanks for any advice !

St. Petersburg - Kaliningrad.... boat? Visa situation

I read in the Lonely Planet guide about the Georg Ots, a boat plying the Baltic sea between St. Pete's and Kaliningrad - direct. Does anyone know what the implications of taking this boat would be on the visa situtation - ie. chance of not needing a multi-entry visa, as I wouldn't be leaving Russian territory? I have a three month, single entry business visa, which is registered in St. Petersburg. I'm travelling within Russia until the middle of August, when I have to come back to St. Petersburg to work, and then I need to get to Germany before the 1st September. This seems like an option, as apparently tickets are a mere twenty pounds sterling. Anyone any ideas / experience? Many thanks for your assistance, Tim x

Russian transcription!  (1 Answer)

Hey, Anybody knows what would be the name of Czerniachowsk / Tschernyachovsk / Cerniahovsk / Tserniachovsk - the city in the Kaliningrad region formerly known as Insterburg or Wystruc? I cannot find it on the VT - probbaly because of misspelling, and there is no list of all destinations any more!
