Movie Reviews

Some good basic information
P. Carr | Ohio | 07/17/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Having been to St. Petersburg I think some things could have been added about the city and added some more historical places such as Yusopov Palace and Catherines Palace at Pushkin just to name a couple. But at a high level this video was good and the places that were visited were a good choice and the video footage of them were very well done. If you are looking just to get some basic exposure to Russia and little about Russian Culture, then this video is for you. If you have travelled to Russia before and taking in a new city. It is just enough to give you some good sights to see your first few days."

"I enjoyed the DVD. I found the host to be a bit annoying, as he seemed to make every effort to be funny, which was not necessary. However, I also found the information he imparted to be interesting and quite helpful for someone planning to visit Moscow and St. Petersburg. It gives a taste of life in those cities, including the local people, food, and places they frequent, along with the normal tourist places you would want to see."
Globe Trekker hits the mark on this one.

"This is one of the better Globe Trekker Videos. Ian Wright manages to pull this one off by showing us beautiful sights in Moscow and St. Petersburg. The onion domes are a beautiful sight. I cannot wait to explore the Izmaylolsky Sunday Market for old soviet souvenirs.

I really enjoyed the blank expression on the face of the grocery worker when Ian decided to buy some bread. It was priceless!

Overall, this was a great introduction to Russia. A job well done."
