Russia. Guide for caravanners
 
 In the XIV century travellers told, that in Moscow live only giants covered by the wool. Then, for a long time, everyone thought, that in Russian cities wander bears on the streets, and all Russians – are gloomy mans, wearing cap with ear-flaps. After the reorientation, bears were replaced by bandits and mans from KGB. Of course, this all facts about Russia didn’t attract tourists. And for the long time Europe and the whole world didn’t know so much about such a country, named Russia, where wild people live and whence the sent missionaries not always come back. Till now foreign tourists go for the rest to the other countries. The reason for that is – the tours to Russia are very expensive, but the quality of services is not so good. Until recently Russia has been closed not only for traditional tourism, but also for one of the largest tourist groups in the Europe and America – caravanners. Not so many people go to Russia on the motorhome, because of bad roads and absence of the developed infrastructure. But someone understand, that Russian roads are not the worst roads in the world. The staffs in the majority of hotels, and usual rural facilities have already got used to the unusual tourists on the motorhomes, and give with the great pleasure the necessary service for them. If you don’t need the electricity, then you can spend the night everywhere, where you like: on the edge of a wood, in the forest, or on the bank of the picturesque river. And, please believe, that to sleep in the motorhome in Russia isn’t not so much dangerously, than in the whole Europe. And there is enough places, where you can stop, fill motorhome with pure water, connect it to the electricity and so on. In the near future the problem with Russian roads will be hardly solved. Though in many directions was outlined the positive dynamics. The situation with the campings construction seems to be better. A lot of bases of the rest and hotel complexes already have begun the construction of campings and making places especially for motorhomes. But some time will pass, until Russian campings will be like in Europe. Now, there are a lot of hotels and motels with parking places for motorhomes. Also, there is a lot of free-of-charge parking. In the advertising release of the guidebook across Russia, which we have prepared specially for Caravan show in Düsseldorf, we have collected the information necessary for those people, who gathers in a trip across Russia on the motorhome. In this release we have collected the information about all paid and free-of-charge parking on the line Е 105/M10 between St.-Petersburg and Moscow. In the edition you can find the exhaustive information about the services on campings, bases of rest, hotel complexes. In the near future the Russian Club of Caravanners together with the “ Autocamper “ magazine and the company « Auto travel » will let out the full edition of the directory. We plan to create the exclusive edition, which will be useful for everyone who travels with motorhomes and cars. Uniqueness of the Russian guidebook on campings will consist, that we’ll give the information, concerning the Russian and European parking and campings. In this guidebook you’ll find the information about Russian and European campings, beginning with the description of an entrance, a place, various details, and finishing with the contact information. Also, we are starting the Internet-project. On a site www.avtotravel.com you can find the interactive card with paid and free-of-charge parking. On the site, it will be possible to find a suitable camping under the name, place or region. With the help of an expanded search, users can find camping, which will satisfy to all conditions. The site will find for you campings, which you can thoroughly study: to see photos, to read the responses, to learn camping equipment, to find parking phone and coordinates, for hammering it into the navigating system. We invite to cooperation tourist complexes, hotels, campings, tourist bases and tour agencies, which organize trips to Russia. The additional information about the guidebook it’s possible to receive in an edition of the “Avtokemper” magazine or on the site www.avtotravel.com.  
 
Thank you for information!!!   Dank U!!!
 
Please inform me about this guide.    I was travelling from Amsterdam to vladivostok on my own  without any guide .    The only campings I found on the road were  the TIR places for trailers dirty as hell  bur payable.    I mostly stayd ovenight at platnaya stoyanka and try to find the dryist place. But the motels on the road are very good and cheap. I was amzad that there was enough food and gazoline on the road . Even the dirt road (1500 km) from Chita to Chabarovsk was wel equipped. The best place was  Petr 1  somewhere between Krasnoyarsk and Irkoetsk. They even had a toulet (platnaya) with hot water. In the middle of nowere.   It took me total 2 month  and Kazakstan is out of the question they dont have asfalt.
 
Hi, Jaap.   I think you had a good journey through Russia. I think it could be interesting for the readers of the magazine Autocamper.   If you want, you can describe it and give us photos, we will publish it in the magazine.      We don't have a lot of camping places in Russia. We have not so many camping places of european type.   As you said, there are a lot of motels in Russia. Parking places near motels are very comfortable for caravanners.    We will put it together in the Guide for caravanners. Also we will put this information on this site.    We will inform you about our Guide.        
 
Hi, CNN.      How many people usually travel together in different cars?
 
Good day)   Most of the foreigners travel through Russia in groups. It could be 20-40 campers.   European people prefer to travel through Russia in groups, because some of them think that it could be dangerous in Russia. Some of them don't want to travel through Russia alone, because there is no infrastructure. We dont' have camping places, our roads are not so good. So it's easear to travel in group with guide, who can solve all the problems.   Not so many european people go to Russia alone in their own car (RV).       When people travel through Europe they don't need to be in group, they don't need the guide, because there is eveything you need for caravanners and autotravellers.
 
Situation is getting better with campings in Russia. Moscow and Suzdal campings are very well equiped.And Russia is so big, so it's her nature. In our trip in spring and summer this year (2012) we stayed a lot in the nature. Super. No way we would stay on TIR parking, when there are so many nice places in Russia.
