Hi everyone - Thanks for the great information on taking a boat and information if you stay for only 72 hours you don't need a VISA.
I have a question and need some help.....
I am coming to Helsinki in July and wanted to visit St. Petersburg.
I have read much on the forum here - and read if you take the boat in to St. Peterburg with one of the tour companies mentioned here you do not need a visa.
My friend and I wanted to take the boat and then can we fly out to Stockholm?? or do we need a full visa for this.
I am thinking that we may just fly in and fly out - and it is my understanding then we will need a full visa - and then will need a travel invitation. Can anyone provide the best tour or agency that you can recommend if flying in and not taking the boat.
and can we buy are flight there from a travel agent in St. Petersburg to Copenhagen?
or is it a better idea to book it before my departure via Kayak or something??
