Air B and B St Petersburg

+1 vote
My cousin and I are 2 Australian ladies in our 60s
We have some walking difficulties and would like to
visit St Petersburg as tourists next May 2018
We would like to rent a 2 bedroom apartment rather than a hotel
Can we do this?  If so, how do we organise the letter of invitation for our visa applications?
Thank you

Hi, you can get this apartment through AirBnB and then get your visa support through http://waytorussia.net/Travel/VisaSupport.html

Just make sure your apartment is on the ground floor or that the building has an elevator. Frankly, in your case, maybe a hotel is a better option, so you wouldn't have problems with accessibility.
