The Traveller's Yellow Pages:
The Traveller's Yellow Pages and Handbook series is designed
especially to fill the need for an up-to-date, accurate "Yellow Pages"
telephone book for travelers and foreigners living, visiting and working
in Russia. There are currently editions for St. Petersburg and Moscow as well as CitiDex and Citidex editions for Manhattan and various towns and areas on Long Island.
The concept of a "Yellow Pages" designed especially for travelers
and foreign residents evolved from our 1991 proposal to the Leningrad Telephone
Company to do a full size "Yellow Pages" in Russian.
The first edition of theThe Traveller's Yellow Pages and Handbook for Saint Petersburg was published in September, 1992 and was an instant
success. The 1994 Goodwill Games Organizing Committee in Saint Petersburg
selected The Traveller's Yellow Pages and Handbook for Saint
Petersburg and its companion The Traveller's Yellow Pages City Map
to be the "Official Visitor's Directory" and the "Official
Visitor's Map" for the 1994 Goodwill Games. The first edition of The
Traveller's Yellow Pages and Handbook for Moscow was published
in October, 1994.
These practical telephone and handbooks each contain 1000's of telephone numbers and addresses of shops, restaurants, hotels, services, institutions
and useful information for visitors and residents of Saint Petersburg and Moscow respectively. All this information is classified under 500 categories
of goods and services, like the well-known "Yellow Pages" used throughout the world. Our books, written in English, are designed for the
world traveler with indexes in English, Russian, German, French, Swedish and Finnish.
