St Petersburg NOT via a cruise

Jump to last reply

I know no Russian and have no Russian contacts. But the airfares look half decent to St Petersburg, a place I always wanted to go. It seems like most people go there via a cruise but I wanted to go on my own. Is this "done"? Other than getting a visa, are there concerns/issues/pitfalls I should be aware of going sans cruise? It will be myself and DH (both in mid 40s).
Thanks.
