Must have travel guide for anyone travelling to Eastern Europe

Have been using this app every time I went to former Soviet countries. It has everything you need to find from local ‘hidden’ spots to chic hipster talk of the town joints. App has a very convenient offline feature that lets me navigate the map without any need for internet!

Great app

We have recently visited Saint Petersburg and Moscow and could not have done it without this app. We used the map functionality to navigate around the cities, and visited the places it recommends, all which were brill. Thank you!

Excellent travel guide! Totally transformed my recent trips to Voronezh and Saint Petersburg. So many excellent suggestions for places to eat and great bars we would never have found on our own. We saw so much more of each city using this app
