"Don't forget, St. Petersburg used to be a swamp..." Insect Repellent Tip by mayafly

Insect Repellent, Saint Petersburg: 5 reviews and 2 photos

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In summer, definitely bring mosquito repellent! When in Russia, you might want to buy a small plug-in device (called a "fumigator") and the accompanying tablets (tabletki) that also help to keep these pests at bay.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
