"Pictures not allowed / Pay to take pictures" Kondopoga Favorite Tip by ealgisi

Kondopoga General: 4 reviews and 1 photos

Favorite thing: While traveling in Russia, please note:

In some places, shopping centers, souvenir places etc... pictutes are absolutely not allowed at all and you will find some advertising at the entrance of the place too.

It can also happen, for example in churches or little museums, that you will be asked for additional money to take pictures.
What happened to me for exemples i was asked to pay 100 Rubles to take pictures inside a museum.
Well to be honest 100 Rubles don't change my life at all if you think how much they are in your country so i gave them.
Same experience into a church, i was asked to give an offer to take pictures, but it was worth, the Orthodox churches are really beautiful.

On the other side, in another church the lady didn't ask me for money, but anyway i gave an offer, just to be polite.

This is just to remember you to be polite, and always ask if you can take pictures before taking them.
