Hello Nagybudai and Everyone in Cheboksari,

I got to this site through a message and I found your postings very interesting to read.

Actually, I am the one that used to attend a college year in Chebok in 1978-79 (a long time agosmiling smiley sad smiley ) learning the Russian language from Hungary and still have very nice memories of the people and the place.

Unfortunately, I do not have too many photos of those experiences - and those are somewhere quite a distance from where I live now - but I will look for them and will scan and send them to you share with others.

Anyway, it is nice to hear from y8tiger... regards to you all anywhere in the world. I had wonderful experiences in Atlanta (Georgia, US) too in 2001 and 2006 - the Hungarian community is wonderful there.

And my best wishes to you, Nagybudai as your nick sounds very much Hungarian. Is it so? I would like to hear about your Hungarian and Cheboksary ties as this is what we can share, can't we?

My best wishes to the people in Cheboksary to where - I do hope- I can return on a visit in the near future. I am sure it will not disappoint me but, on the contrary, it will recall all my wonderful memories of my time as a student there.

Warm regards,
Maria

To Maria
I am totally Hungarian. My mother and father were born in Erdei. My father was born before World War I. My mother after. I have relatives in Szekelykerestur in Romania. I was born in the United States in the Midwest. Detroit, Michigan. I've lived in the Miami area since 1959. I went to high school, college, and professional school in Miami. I know how to speak Hungarian but English is my main language. I am very American but I am proud of my European roots. I have never been to Cheboksary but was led to this site when I did a little investigation about scams. I find the site and members postings refreshing. My full name is Peter Nagy. I'm proud of it. I encourage all people to be proud of their name and heritage. I like to get information about Cheboksary because in early 2007 I became interested in Russian cultures and norms. I was contacted by a Russian woman who actually just wanted me to send her money and disappear. I never sent her any money. But this did not sour my feelings about Russians. I studied about Russia in high school and learned interesting facts about it's 20th century history. I have been to Budapest once. In June of 1991. Unfortunately I never had an opportunity to do a return visit but that will come someday.I don't want to take up space on this forum to talk about non related things. I'd be happy to tell you more on my email nagybudai@yahoo.com, please contact me there.

Everything depends on every country's regulations. In order to get American or British visa Russian citizens are to visit the embassies and answer different idiotic questions of the embassy officers.

Probably.

No discounts.

The price for international passport is about 500-600 R.
I don't know what the price for 4 photos in Cheboksary now is. It is definitely more than 100 R.
The cheapest ticket to Cheboksary costs ~700-800 R.

800 Roubles equals about USD 34. That's pretty cheap in US dollars. This would equal 170 Norwegian Kroners. I know the dollar is a little weak but I can see the strength it might have as compared to other currencies. Of course the Euro is much stronger. This would be 22 Euros. Currency conversion is pretty interesting. I've never gauged the feeling about the dollar in Europe but I know there's a lot of respect for the Euro.

I cannot find hotel information. Names and phone numbers would be appreciated. Comments about quality - i.e. safety, cleanliness, possibility of non-smoking rooms, etc. I plan a quick trip there from Moscow over the March 8th holiday weekend.

Don't have the numbers of the hotels to hand. But you can check them out here. [english.vcheboksari.ru] or Google Гостиницы Чебоксар (Hotels Cheboksary)
The Chuvashia is right in the centre of town - its been renovated and looks OK . I presume its open now. The Diss and Rossiya are both a short taxi ride outside the centre, near the Megamall. Both are large, fairly modern and very clean. The Diss is more expensive of the two and has quite a nice Irish pub downstairs. The Rossiya is pretty soviet but cheap, get a superior room on the top floor. I don' know about non smoking rooms, you will have to ask them. Compared to Moscow, London and, NYC, Cheb is safe. You can fly, takes about 1 hour or take the express train from the Kazanski station. Its exactly 12 hours overnight. . Its not a great time of the year, Cheb is nicer in the summer when its hot, but the Beer Museum is open. I presume you speak a bit of Russian, or it can be difficult, but not impossible. Удачи!

I think it would be interesting to stay in the Chuvashia Sanatorium I stayed in a Sanatorium on Lake Issyk-Kul, Kyrgyzstan years ago and found it to be a very nice experience.

Here are some other ideas from the Chamber of commerce and industry of the Chuvash Republic site: Tourism

No way is J_Rasp translating Tigger (anyway he will tell us himself )
I have learned a lot by talking to Russian scammers ,they alone have inadvertently made me become interested in other aspects of Russia over a period of years .

Incidentally I have a feeling it is impossible to discuss Russia without discussing Russian women, so for those who praised Graham for ending the scam help forum I ask... where are those people now ?

No person speaks Russian AND Persian and visits India every year but me. The journey from Shanghai to Moscow gets easier every year, and the stop in Cheboksary was just like Amsterdam, and just like here. Not even sure of the way back, even though I know the place like the back of my hand. I once met Mohamed on a subway and "to ha'aje" he said, "it doesn't matter which way you go, but go you must." Even going with someone though, you go alone, and maybe arrive there together, maybe not on the same day, maybe never depending on the place, but eventually you will meet again, and again, maybe here and maybe somewhere else, after a journey...but never in a way that you expect, always like a bird without a nest.
