St. Petersburg

For independent travelers, your hotel can be essential in helping you procure your visa, as you'll need a "letter of invitation" to apply (if you're on a tour or book through an agency, they should get this letter for you). This means that you'll want to nail down where you're going to stay before you send in your paperwork; plan accordingly, as even an expedited visa application can take several weeks.
