Is St. Petesburg Moscow by plane feasable for someone who doesn't speak Russian?
If not is it possible to book a train compartment for 3 persons? Also I cant seem to find where to buy/book tickets here: http://eng.rzd.ru/
I am considering two different sets of hotels for the two cities:
One more expensive: Marriot Courtyard Moscow City Center and Hotel Pushka INN
And a budget one: Hotel Sovietsky , Herzen House Hotel.
What do you make of them?
Also from what I read I get a lot of mix feelings about being able to visit both cities without a guide ( I dont speak russian). I have traveled through out Europe with no guide: Istanbul, Check Republica, France, Uk, Spain, Italy, East Germany (not much english spoken there) for instance and I only speak english, portuguese, spanish and a bit of french. Do I need one in Russia?
Tks so much in advance for your help
