Hallo, I think not your foto is the monument I have seen in Cheboksary. I have here a foto of the monument to the soldiers of the Great Patriotic War in Cheboksary where all the newly marrieds are making a little promenade. Cheers

I purchased some cool Cheboksary and Chuvashia Tourist Books and CDs from the little little souvenir shop next to the Beer Museum. Maybe you can find some for sale online. There are photos of all the local monuments. On the outskirts of the city there is a large Cheboksary sign where all the newly weds also make a journey to paint their names on the sign. Every year the Government has the sign re-painted.

Difficult to say. I will have much free time at the end of April. But I must spend this time preparing for my final exams at university which will take place in the first half of May. They are called 'state exams' in Russia as they are the last ones for Russian university students.
Anyway, I will find time, if you really come to Cheboksary.

What would be a good Russian wine? Are there programs in Russia where people are taught to be wine connoisseurs? They look at a wine and can identify it's texture and the year it was produced. They can also tell what vineyard the wine came from. Where are some of the famous vineyards located in Russia? Of course in the United States wine is produced in Pennsylvania and California. The NAPA valley in California is a known vineyard. I'm sure some Russians produce their own wine and beer. But it's interesting to know what type of correlations there are. Anyone from Cheboksary familiar with this topic?

Good Russian wine is:

Chechen counterfeit vodka + sugar + water coloring

Be careful what you buy. There are many fakes on the shelves.

The wine-making industry is in a bad condition nowadays. The most famous vineyards are located in the former Soviet republics: Moldova, Armenia, Georgia.

To Lemon. Are there any wines in Russia imported from the United States? The simple wines are Gallo, Almaden, Franzia, and Paul Maisson. While I'm not too familiar with wines because I don't drink anymore, I have found an interest in learning about wine production. Of course the grapes have to come from a good location and fermented in ideal conditions. Storage of wine also has to be ideal. But there are the simple ones I mentioned that can be stored in any condition. Do Russians drink more red wine than white wine? Of course red wine has more anti-oxidants which when consumed, break down the fat in the body. This is why heart disease is not such a big problem in France.

I don't drink alcohol at all. I don't know what wine is more popular in Russia. I don't know if they import any wine from the USA.

Was the Superbowl broadcast over there in Cheboksary? If it was it's good for those tourists who visit Cheboksary from America and can watch it in their hotel rooms. Are there any sportsbars in Cheboksary?

You see, American football is not popular outside America at all. Not everybody knows what it is. NFL games are not broadcast on our public television available throughout the country. There is a couple of sattelite channels in Russia which broadcast NFL games sometimes. One of them always broadcasts the Superbowl game live. Tourists from America had a chance to watch the game.
There are some sports bars in Cheboksary.
Re: For Real Cheboksary Tourism Questions

Well, djoeye, I wouldn't doubt it. A commercial to be broadcast during the Superbowl, costs the sponsor $ 2.5 million. That's just for one minute. This year it was a larger audience which watched the Superbowl. But I admit, the World Cup Soccer championship draws a larger audience. That's why soccer is growing in intensity in the US. With all the learning of football plays and manuevers, when a football player gets older, he experiences many degenerative diseases related to muscles and the nerves which suppoet them. In the soccer arena, I always root for the European team. I hate the teams of third world countries. But the last time I played football was in 1968 at a picnic in a park close to my home. The teams were divided into the men, and the women. The woman were allowed to stop the men by tagging below the waste. The men stopped the women by tackling them. This was fun. The men got to have their hands all over the women. It was no holds barred tackling. I enjoyed it. Some women ended up hating me after the game. It was a tie. 7-7. I always felt playing football this way was fun.

In the Miami Dade County area where I live, voters recently approved gambling slot machines to be placed in three locations. A dog track, a horse track, and jai alai fronton. I'm not a big proponent of gambling and I'll probably never operate any of the slot machines at the different locations. Are there any locations near Cheboksary or close by where people can operate slot machines? Is there any legalized gambling in Russia.

There are casinos in all the big Russian cities nowadays but very soon gambling will be prohibited on the terretory of Russia. Four special gamblig zones will be created instead in different parts of the country. They call them "Russian Las Vegases".
Re: For Real Cheboksary Tourism Questions
February 16, 2008 06:56PM
Controlling gambling generally is a good idea. I was in the Bahamas years ago and attendants at the crap tables were really attempting to cheat the people who were playing and putting their money down. There was nothing that could be done since you were in another country. Certainly in Las Vegas, the owners of the casinos buy off the local police who make sure the casinos profit handsomely. This is why I'm not such a big proponent of gambling. I suggest anyone wanting to try gambling should observe first and then decide if they trust the attendants are doing their job. Yes you can win at gambling but you have to be sure you know what you're doing. There are lots of people watching winners in casinos. Winners should not get greedy but leave after they've won a fair amount. .

While I've never been to Cheboksary, I believe there are good people there. I would never say I'm safer here in Miami, Florida than I would be in Cheboksary because I've been the victim of a number of crimes here. In most cases, I'm glad to be alive. Women in the United States are scammers sometimes and many times there are men behind this. About the only people facing the death penalty in US prisons are the poor people. I've never heard of a prominent wealthy person being executed. The system of justice in the United States can also be considered a scam because money, in most cases, buys a person's freedom. It's a shame. That's why I tread lightly because I know we here in America have a lot of big faults.

Why to drink water when beer is good enough? I'll come to Cheb when I financially recover.
I still believe vast majority of Cheboksarians are good people like Lemon, with some weeds
in between called Ekaterina/Katya/Kolya/Dima. I'll drink to it. Nazdarovie! smileys with beer
Re: For Real Cheboksary Tourism Questions

I drank tap water in Europe when I was there. If there are healthy Russians in Cheboksary, that means the water treatment process is pretty much the same in the developed countries. Miami is the place where a good water filter is recomended by myself who has worked with the water treatment department here in Miami. Pure water makes things taste better like coffee, soup, and vegetables cooked in water. Chloronation is the culprit that ruins the taste of the water. It can also produce tri-halomethanes which filtering can remove. My advice is, if you can't filter it, drink only enough to quench your thirst.

I have been following this thread for a while now after searching on the web trying to gather information about this fascinating place. I have seen quite a few pics here posted by few members and I am more curious to know and experience the place in person. However, I wanted to know from locals/tourists if it is safe enough for a black person to visit the place ? I am not visiting any girl there, its just my interest of knowing different cultures and places.

Thank you,
R.

It's good to get the input of locals before you go traveling to another country. If you come to Miami, try to stay somewhere east of US Highway 1. Usually you can find a good spot on Miami Beach. Coming during the summer is a better option because hotel and motel prices are cheaper. If you have a friend in the city, try to arrange to have the friend meet you at the airport if possible. Once arriving anywhere in the world see if there is a center which can answer your concerns about attitudes and situations in the city. If you can get American Express Traveler's Checks, this is even better. These can be replaced in the event of any type of loss. They can even be cashed at any bank in the US. I take them when Itravel abroad. I've never had a problem.
Re: For Real Cheboksary Tourism Questions

flyfar :-> There are white folks living in Bronx and Baltimore and majority of the police force in New Orleans is white. I think it is still relatively safe to "visit" those areas. Nobody can say racism does not exist and I believe US is relatively tolerant compared to other western countries and I am proud of my country for that.

I have extensively traveled western europe during the past 4-5 years, all countries leaving few like north of Netherlands and Italy. I have visited only major cities as could not afford to go for long vacations. I found London, Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels to be very friendly and welcoming and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. Last year I also made a trip to Prague and also ventured to slovak republic for less than a day. For lack of better words, I found a bit of hostility in those regions, not that the people are not nice, I think that they are not just used to seeing people of my color as tourists.
So I was curious to know how wise would it be for me to venture further east of europe to a place like Cheboksary, alone ? I would like to have an honest local opinion about this.

Thank you,
R.

I would tend to agree with Lemon. I don't think you should have any problems in Cheboksary. Rap, R&B, Reggae, and all other types of music I would say are also popular in Cheboksary. I believe more that there is tolerance of all types of people in other parts of the world. The real thug is the one who is looking to enrich himself. Money and materialism are the norm for such person rather than race. When I was attacked by two black youths in the Liberty City area, money and material items were what they wanted. They even tried to steal my car, but they couldn't drive a stick shift. They had guns but I cooperated with them and came out alive. I lost money and some other items but my life was more dear to me.
Re: For Real Cheboksary Tourism Questions

Nagybudai I have to say that I was extremely shocked by the amount of violence in your state. Every single day there was at least 1 murder in every town and always involving guns and nearly always it was between black men. I'm so glad we have no plans to legalise gun ownership over here although we have a problem with gangs of black men, it's very rarely white men, most of these have links to the USA and Caribbean. We ended up in a few dodgy looking places ourselves and saw a few men that scared the shite out of us just by looking at them so we soon got the hell out of there and sure as hell we didn't look behind us! I'd love to buy a villa out there but this kind of menace puts me off as I don't feel 100% safe.

To Mitch

I've survived out here since 1959. I can appreciate how you feel. I am saddened by one of the stimuli which I feel is responsible for most of the crime. I refer to Hollywood. We have talented producers like Stephan Spielberg, Leonard Stern, Laurence Tisch, Josef Sulzberger, Metro-Goldwyn Mayer and the like. These individuals of the entertainment industry produce movies and programs which glamorize violence, hatred of whites, and killing. In any form of media you will see where the white European is vilified. FBI statistics tell another story than the media wants to report. Ninety percent of interracial crime in the United States is black on white. Hate crimes are so rare they should not be given such inordinate attention here in the United States. I've learned where to go and not to go here in Miami. I do support the citizens right to own guns, but the gun crime statistics are grossly over reported. In Kennesaw, Georgia, where a city ordinance was passed requiring all residents to own a gun, the crime rate dropped fifty almost over night. There's more murder via the use of knives, beatings, arson, poisonongs, cutting a car's brakeline, and non-firearm implements than there is with guns. The FBI and local crime statistics bear this out. But getting back to the entertainment industry, the producers I mentioned are not talented if they inflame one race with movies and programs that vilify the white European. I never go to the movies here because I hate the violence that Hollywood tries to glamorize.
