"You only live twice" Taxis Tip by gussymons

Taxis, Saint Petersburg: 11 reviews and 3 photos

Buckle-up when you get into taxis.

I was in a car-crash with two other Westerners, and the driver, from Azerbaijan, was merrily chatting away to a guy (Spencer) who could speak some Russian.

Driving at 60mph past red-lights at 0100hrs is an invitation to dance with the devil, and sure enough, someone rammed into the side of our taxi.

We were all ok, but the driver had a bloody nose. Slightly pissed, we decided not to wait for the friendly militia to finger us for some green, so we coughed up the fare, and scarpered to the 'Tribune' bar opposite the Bronze Horseman.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
