  • Published on: 07 March 2016
  • In the south-east of Estonia, there's 800m of road where you can drive through Russia without a visa. We drove it. BONUS PARK BENCH: We Got Pulled Over By The Estonian Military: https://youtu.be/KCR2kHrr4oA

    If you ever have a question about Russia, the shortest answer is don't screw with them. They say don't stop, then don't freaking stop, or look like you are stopping, or pretend you are stopping, or yell out the window that you are stopping.

    You are dramatizing the difficulty of getting a visa for Russia at least from the US. Fill out the application correctly and honestly. Follow the directions. Nowadays you can get an "invitation" over the internet easily. I usually stay at hotels and they register the passport for you. But give the process plenty of time. There is now a three year visa which works perfectly.

    Aren't Finnish people also allowed to use the Saimaa canal without a visa because Russia leases it to Finland?

    57.8 degrees North. I live in Northern Scotland at the same latitude and it's crazy how much more Artic it is in Estonia.

    Haha, it's like the Berlin underground in the communist era that ran under West Berlin - just never stopped at the West-Berlin stops (that used to be in use before WWII) - on which the people of East Berlin could legally cross the East German / West German border without any kind of document or visa - and, also, any chance to exit the metro car of course :)

    It is weird how Russia is getting more western each day.And somehow, for some reason, North America seems to get less western. Now, i'm not an expert (by any means) but nowdays, most i see from the NA compared to other 'better hald of the world, is that seems most keen on keeping secrets, violence, hiding weapons, ignorant stuff like abortion laws, stupid healthcare systems, racism & just really weird social structre...... Not to mention the religious nuts "over there" & the "i got a right to bear arms!"-nut cases.It's a silly place.*

    Russians are ridiculously brutal racists they will shoot us immediately if we cross the border in the sea between Hokkaido and Kuril. They do let you go and they dont shoot you because you are whites thats all. We really hate Russia.
