Lonely Planet St Petersburg (Travel Guide) Reviews
I loaded this guide onto my Kindle Fire. The double-click / spread-finger zoom works fine on the maps. Our trip was to multiple cities, so getting kindle versions of this guide book and a few of the Rick Steves guidebooks gave us all the advantages of these guides without the bulk. The Lonely Planet guide took us to a couple of great restaurants and all of the key attractions in St Petersburg. With tips from this guidebook, and if you're brave enough to figure out the metro and/or deal with taxis, you really don't need a guide. Good guides certainly have their place for those who want background and history. However, we're a pretty independent family and we do some research on places before going, so we found no need for a Russian guide other than our Lonely Planet guidebook.
This book should be in your preparation for a trip to Russia. It is very well organized by topics. The color photographs capture the beauty of the area. The included maps provide a useful reference for locating places. There are an abundance of useful tips on how to communicate and find what you will need there. One of the best compact references I've found.
Downloaded for recent trip to St. Petersburg. Tried several of the restaurants. Good advice. Gintarus, Zoom Cafe, Lev.
Kindle version is not as good as the physical book. I bought the Kindle version 3 weeks ago before my trip and ended up with a buddy who had the book version. He had more maps, and the Kindle version was harder to navigate with the links they set up for viewing the book. It was super convenient to have the book on my iphone, but I think having the paper back book is much more useful. I'd give 5 stars for the paperback copy.
Thanks as promised
I've been using Lonely Planet for 20 years and will continue until I'm disappointed. Thank-you for a great resource on St Petersburg. Absolutely loved the city and this guide led us to what we wanted to see. The streets and street signs can be a little confusing when getting off beaten track but the maps in the LP guide are good.
We spent a week in St Petersburg and found this guide invaluable. It had good maps, great suggestions about what to see and do.
