St. Petersburg to become Las Vegas style marriage capital for foreign visitors
Russian officals have now decided to offer “quickie marriages” to attract more tourists to St. Petersburg. Within 72 hours couples visiting St Petersburg will be allowed to get a marriage licence and have a ceremony in one of the beautiful Russian Catholic or Orthodox churches that dot this romantic city. This goes along so well with the law allowing 72 hours visa free stay for cruise and ferry passengers. New registry offices will be opened and new registrars will be trained to serve foreign tourists arriving for a wedding. It is also notable that this 72 exemption will not be available for Russian citizens.
While this idea is certainly a novel one, we believe having a wedding in St. Petersburg can be a memorable and romantic event. Why not to be married in St. Petersburg?! Please LIKE this news on Facebook and leave your thoughts.
