Default Going to Russia!

I just got confirmation that I'll be studying in St. Petersburg all of next semester - anyone know anything about hookah culture there? St. Pete is a young peoples town, from what I hear, so I'm hopeful that I'll get to knock back some good russian shisha with some good Russian vodka.

Watch out though. European has strict tobacco laws. Such as the amount of sugar that gets put in the shisha. My ex brought me some back and it was as dry as shooting blanks

Russia is fun. I smoked Hookah for the FIRST time in my life in Moscow in a cafe, cherry flavor, the middle eastern guy was hitting on my Russian GF the whole time which was amusing. Russian girls make any trip to Russia definitely worthwhile. St P is a little more relaxed than Moscow, you should definitely have a great time there, just don't make it obvious that you're a tourist or from another country and you'll be fine. (Some NeoNazi groups like to kill foreigners for fun) So, don't run around drunk with ab ig mouth, just stay cool and have fun.

there is some middle eastern influence farther east. St.petersburg doesnt have many, but a few good ones. Moscow has a few from what iv heard. Grozny and Stalingrad are plentifull. I grew up in russia, lived there for 17 years I havnt been back in a couple of years so things might have changed.

there is not such a big hookah-smoking community in russia. as i know, you can find some al fakher and nakhla in some places there, but they dont have special brands you may not know.

i dont know much about russia other than the girls i know from Slovakia and the czech republic (the one i dated hells ya) seem to say that russian girls are sluts... and well lets just say as far as the czech girl was concerned she wasnt a nun so either its just the hatred for russians in those old soviet countries or they are a little open

Oh...guys, you're so funny, indeed =) I'm from Russia, and we also have some hookah tobacco brands, but not so awesome like SB or JM's. I'm going to visit St. Petersburg this month and maybe will come across!

Moscow and St. Petersburg in particular, are two major metropolitan cities (St. Pete is still referred to as the northern capital), and just like in the States, the boom of hookah popularity in Europe has been pretty big, there's no doubt you'll find lounges and af and nakhla there.
