    Ordinary tourists should travel to sightseeing tours in groups. Russians them selfs are the same as us to recognize a foriegn tourist. Like if you walk a street alone after dayliite hours then you will be noticed and it wont matter what country you are from. So yes go but go with friends or join a siight seeing tour. Don't worry if you are a American. But be with friends when you go out at night.

    You will be alright. We have a lot of turists here in Russia, and they are all fine. We Russians will not harm you (why should we?). If you visit some non-russian areas of Russia like Caucasus, you may have problems, but everywere else, you will be fine.

    I wouldn't recommend it as a tourists, maybe if you go with an organization. Not every Russian reflects the views of its government (over there very few do), just like not every American reflects the views of its government. Your better off visiting Nordic Countries though like Sweden, with a "Right to Roam" law you can actually venture more of the country, it is a geographically prettier country that sports far less pollution, and the climate is similar and the culture less hostile. You may try Switzerland as well.

    If you aren't an arrogant American, you will not have problems in Russia.
