Room for rent, short term

Private Room , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Kandalaksha, Murmansk Oblast, Northwestern District
Room for rent in Kandalaksha, 5 min. walk from the train station and 15 min. from the city center. The room is somewhat rundown and decorated in the 1970s style but all works. Shared bathroom, shared kitchen (and you are welcomed to whatever you find in the refrigerator), washing machine, WiFi, two bicycles and whatever else you may need for comfortable living.

A very relaxed household, no particular rules except no smoking indoors please.

$25 per person per night. Someone who is looking for the best bang for the buck well be happy here. If you aim for luxury, probably that's not quite it.

The whole apartment may be free June to September.

Kandalaksha-related questions are welcomed. One of our jobs is maintenance of the English version of the Kandalaksha site, and poking our noses all over the city and area is part of it. So...

Additional Rate and Availability Information
$25 per person per night. More if you need serious support. Less if you come here for a reason that evokes our interest/sympathy. $25/night is a very good deal as it is. No, we are not into price negotiations but if you give use your budget and explain circumstances I'll make every effort to make it easy for you. Just make sure you spare me bargaining Indian or East European style, when the process eats up more than the issue is worth. Thanks for understanding.

About the neighbourhood
The area immediately surrounding the apartment where we are offering you a room is of nondescript small-town Russia type. Four or five story buildings put up just before the war (ours was build in 1939) or in the 60s or 70s. A huge crumbling military compound - a whole city in fact - very close by. But close to a huge park that makes one massive with the real forest. Guess the area will suit a connoisseur of things weird and out of this world. Photos of the immediate neighbourhood and the wider area will be posted soon.

How to get there
Airport: Murmansk: 3,000.0 km
Kandalaksha is a transportation hub. Several trains from central Russia a day but it is ~36 hours from Moscow. The drive from Mosow is long but will give you a cross-section of the country more, probably more intense and historically significant than the famous Trans-Siberian. Circumstances permitting I'd start in Kiev as this is where Rus has started according to most accounts, and make Novgorod another key point. I've travelled by car with a camper in tow several times between Kandalaksha and Moscow and will be happy to advise you, or even to arrange such a trip. For the practical it is train. The cheapest ticket is around $70 from St. Petersburg and $100 from Moscow, and about twice that for something semi-decent. The area is suitable for walking and cycling, and you can borro... more
