HASH(0x9d74dcd8) out of 5 stars A Guide for 17,000,000 Square Kilometers Nov. 3 2009
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
So you have already seen the present (Moscow) and former (St. Petersburg) capital, and now you would like to see the "real Russia", or you have an airplane conference to attend in Kazan, or you have adopted a child from Murmansk, or you are meeting a prospective bride from Magadan (don't laugh--whenever I answer questions from people who are traveling to regions outside of Moscow/St. Petersburg, 80% are going for adoption or marriage!). There are almost no current guidebooks to regions such as Perm, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Volgograd, Crimea, Minsk, and the Far East. The 'Lonely Planet Russia and Ukraine' has the largest area coverage of any guide currently published in English.

It is also ideal for those taking a river cruise between Moscow and St. Petersburg.

The coverage of the famed Trans-Siberian route is ok, although I think the 'Trans-Siberian Handbook' and 'Siberian Bam Guide : Rail, Rivers & Road' do a better job for those particular regions.

The Moscow/St. Petersburg sections are ok as well, although anyone spending more than a few days in each of those cities should look into guides that cover only those cities.

Restaurant, hotel and travel information are good, although could use more details. The history sections are adequate considering the scope of the book. Also, the twice-yearly updates at Lonely Planet's web site, although lacking in breadth and depth, provide some more timely information than what appears in the book.

HASH(0x9d82f0f0) out of 5 stars Needs a Little More Work Aug. 15 2010
By SF Guy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A good first try for an interactive book, articles are hyperlinked throughout, with external links to some very interesting websites. On the negative side, detailed maps do not have enough resolution to read easily, and zooming doesn't help. The inclusion of the index is puzzling, as it serves no purpose as implemented. The entries do not have page listings and they are not hyperlinked, so the index is a huge list of topics leading nowhere, and at nearly ninety pages it is too large to search through easily.
HASH(0x9d82f3cc) out of 5 stars Was a great help both before and during our trip to Russia ... July 3 2014

Was a great help both before and during our trip to Russia until it was stolen with my fanny pack in St. Petersburg. We were warned about ripoffs in Moscow (where we had absolutely no trouble) but not in St. Petersburg ( where we did - after several foiled attempts I might add).

Just the information that I needed and more for a future trip that is being planned for the summer of 2-14.

HASH(0x9dbca0c0) out of 5 stars excellent book Nov. 4 2010

Format: Paperback
My husband and I bought this book originally because we are planning on adopting a child from Russia and wanted to make sure we knew as much as possible about customs, and such prior to leaving the US, it has lots of good information.
