Tourists go to Moscow and Sankt - Petersburg. These are big, and very beautiful cities. Probably Sankt Petersburg is a little more beautiful and quieter, than Moscow. These Cities need to be visited. In Siberia the most developed and beautiful city is Novosibirsk. Here too is what to look. It is possible as to visit Sochi still in the summer. It is the Resort. Too it is interesting. These cities the most attractive. Sankt Petersburg is quieter and purer than Moscow.

More safely I mean it, for example, the country house is subject to ignition more often. Many houses burn. In Novosibirsk there are groups criminal, they are everywhere. But it is more than them, for example, on Kuzbass. Where coal, mines. There it is more favorable to them to be. It is a lot of crime in Moscow. In other parts of Russia, I don't know. The crime everywhere is.

I have always wanted to visit Yakutsk during the winter to experience what -50 to -60 is like. Is it a beautiful city too and are the people friendly?

Is driving in Russia generally this bad?!
Barryboys.co.uk • View topic - The Russian Dashcam Video Thread V2


Is it safe for a non-Russian foreigner to drive? Or will he likely be hijacked/carjacked or a target for police bribery/corruption?

I wasn't in Yakutsk. But I have many friends from Yakutsk. These people are very friendly and friendly. Very interesting, with them it is pleasant to speak. Because of humidity,-50 in Yakutsk, this one and too as in Novosibirsk - 35. So-50 it is usually cold winter. -50 Yakutsk =-35 Novosibirsk

I not absolutely understood that you asked. But I will try to answer. To Russia go absolutely on another than in America. Seldom who observes high-speed a mode and is guided by signs limiting speed. All go quickly. Therefore there are a lot of accidents. The police costs in certain places somewhere at the road. There is the special radar showing speed of the driver. If the police officer noticed excess by a radar, it stops the driver, and the penalty about $10 is formed. Penalty pay not to the police officer, and in cash desk. To avoid bribes. Bribes police officers take for large violation because of which the driver can lose the rights. But it is very rare. ------ If I didn't answer your question, set to me it a little on another, my translator not absolutely precisely translated your question

No. It is the remote corner of Russia. While there was no opportunity to be there. I was in the cities: Barnaul, Omsk, Yarovoe, Kemerovo, Moscow, Sochi, Volgograd, Novokuznetsk

I am an athlete and therefore I go on the cities on competitions
