Tourists, witness. I have not called a single faceless individual a nasty name, but because I share my opinion about Glasgow being the miserable pit that it is, I've been called vile, bitter, ill-informed, scumbag and now a B***ard. I think the inmates protest too much.

Just imagine the reception you'll receive when you try call the front desk to complain about the heroin needles in the hotel shower.

As usual you completely ignore the figures listed in previous posts stating the number of visitors for specific events. You are a total waste of space.

And you make a habit of yelling obscenities at empty space then? Funny, you're not the first I've seen in Glasgow doing precisely the same thing.

Folks, I rest my case.

You have no case, you don't like Glasgow and that's fine but plenty of people do including Lonely Planet and TripAdvisor, two of the most trusted and respected travel sites.

I believe you called all citizens of Glasgow scumbags. You've been nothing but nasty and vile, bashing a city I enjoy and in-laws and friends live in. What do you think I'm going to call you, sweetheart?

I stay overnight in a city centre hotel frequently as going to concerts at night makes me miss the ferry back home. My hotel rooms are always clean and needle free. Do you really think a junkie could afford a Glasgow city centre hotel?

Oh, duh, I must be thinking of the types of hotels you use. The kind that people use for an hour and money exchanges hands.

You either need to pay a tour company that works with Russia, and go on a tour (food and lodging are paid in advance to the tour co., then you'll be eligible for the tourist visa), and the tour co. will arrange your visa. It's the same procedure if you go alone as a tourist. The other way to go is to have an official entity (museum, university, Academy of Sciences, or other officially approved organization) send you an invitation to lecture, or do research, or collaborate with them in some way.

I don't live in Glasgow, eejit. I'm a country girl, never live in cities. Cities are for visiting.

Lonely Planet also ranks Rovaniemi at the Arctic Circle as the best winter destination in Europe:

Could be a bitter blow, but a minnow provincial capital competes with an English metropolitan region.
