Zstravsvouïtié (sp)!
I'm a Brit living in France and have just got my Visa for a short trip to St Petersburg in October. I'm meeting up with my Anglo-French daughter who will be returning to Europe from Japan via the Transsiberian.
I'm revising the Cyrillic alphabet and the little spoken Russian that I know, but does the average Russian in the street speak English/French/German?
What about plugs, e.g. for mobile rechargers? and in fact would Orange France extend to St Petersburg? I doubt this, but you never know.
I've read that tap water shouldn't be drunk, but what about tea made with boiled tap water? Such silly details but it would be good to know in advance.
I'm looking forward to this opportunity to visit the "Venice of the North" and hope to have answers to my silly questions.
P.S. And, to any one thinking of visiting Russia, I advise passing through one of the Visa Agencies rather than going to a Russian Consulate for a Visa...

I'm sorry about that, but the previous poster had made some unkind anti-soviet comments which needed to be addressed. I merely ask him if he had visited our country.
