Hard Copy Road Maps - North West Russia

Looking at heading into North West Russia next summer and have been wondering about road maps, can anyone recommend(or alternative advise which to avoid) any maps covering that region. Looking at something covering Murmanskaya,Karelia,Arkhangelskaya, Komi regions, been looking at the Hildebrand or Geocenter options but does anyone know of any others or have experience of these.

Opinions welcome please!:thumbup1:

PM me, I can probably help.

Not hard copy and not as good as modern RUS road atlas, but worth a look for general route planning-

Good zoom and roaming navigation. Zoom is on the bar, use the red square in the bottom left map to move about.

Interestingly, Georgia becomes blank if you try to zoom in on it. And they claim Russia is now a free country and has put the old ways behind them!
