Transport

It's common to travel by trains in Russia. To go to Belarus / Ukraine the best option is to take a night train to the border and cross the border by other transport / by hitch-hiking (crossing a border makes a train ticket cost 2 times more).

Visa

Russia has an extended system of bureaucracy.

Most nationals of Western countries require invitations for a visa to Russia. Most EU states can now (June 2014) obtain a visa without an invitation, but through a travel agency. For example, in Berlin this costs €85 (June 2014) for a German passport and €105 (June 2014) for a UK passport.

Countries with visa free entry are Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, most former Soviet countries (except the Baltic EU countries) and Balkan countries.
