Should we go:St Petersburg in current Russia vs World crisis

My sister and I are traveling to Finland and Estonia in June. We had been planning on going to St Petersburg but we could do Riga instead.

We are not scared to go to Russia but we would hate to buy visas and then not be able to use them.

Any thoughts?

When applying for your visa be sure to ask for the 3 year visa so your plans would become much more flexibly and as with many, you will want to extend your visit since there is so much to see and do that even two weeks is barely scratching the surface of things that would be of interest to you, regardless of your interests. If there are any restrictions coming here for Americans, it would come from the US state department, not Russia, which tends not to be so driven by politics.

visas existed well before the current political events. Russia does welcome tourists and there are no restrictions for tourists.
