Doesn’t matter what you’re interested in, Saint Petersburg has it. It’s the largest «small» city in Europe. Such a large population, but everything you want in nightlife and action is packed into several districts. Best city in Europe for nightlife. Not sure why nomadlist has «safety» as a con because it’s safer than any western europe city and every american city. Cheaper than Thailand, but winter is COLD.

Came 14 yrs ago from Germany for a visit — and stayed. Is 1 of most beautiful cities on earth, and I was almost everywhere in my younger days.- Cost of living extremely cheap if you know the basic rules.- Opened my own travel agency 10 yrs ago and pay only 6% taxes no matter how much I earn.- Average internet speed is 77 Mbit/sec.- Red tape is on the down side. You really need a Russian lawyer if you want to stay for years.- Winters can get very harsh, my lowest was -34 C in 2016.-

Extremely beautiful and liveable city, not very expensive either, for the most part. People were very friendly too. Good public transport and working spaces (coffee shops, coworking spaces).

Ask a question

I have two passports from different countries and am trying to understand where can I travel now. Is there a publicly available map of countries open for visitors by passport country that I can use to see what are my options? I was pretty sure such a thing should exist, but cannot easily find any.

Maybe at least there’re maps for specific passports? Mine are Russian and American.

If there’s no such thing, I’d be down to build one, let me know if interested to collaborate 🙂

I understand that you are not EU, but this exists for EU (search for Re-open EU on Google)

I don’t think that the problem is building it; it’s updating and maintaining it as laws could change day by day. For example a while ago Germany restricted entry from certain provinces of the Netherlands, but not the entire country. So if you had a website you would have had to update that, not for the whole country, but for some regions.

Check this one too (search on Google for skyscanner covid restrictions)

Oh, this looks like what I was looking for:

Not sure if this is by passport or country of departure though, likely the latter.

Thanks Amin. Agree this would take effort to maintain. But given good data sources, shouldn’t be very hard, just labor intensive.

Province-level details make it more complicated though 🙁

Oh, this is great, thanks! I wish they’d have a map to show countries by your passport.

So far I found a map on Kayak (/travel-restrictions) but it doesn’t allow to pick my passport country, I think, so is pretty useless.

I am an English/American currently in Israel, and heading in a week to Georgia/Armenia for two weeks and then want to head to Russia for a week.

As I am only in Israel for another week, would it be possible to apply for the visa in Israel and ask to receive it in Armenia (my last stop before I want to go to Russia)?

Or perhaps there is another better option that I have available?

I can’t speak for Israel but I was in Bangkok once at the Russian consulate and they said 5 days turn around time. I said I needed my passport to fly back to phuket and can’t wait that long and the manager said for 20$ he will do express next day. Probably best to check with the consulate you intend on going, and give it a try in person too.
