Some venues, like museums or galleries ask for permits, most are fine, just no flash in any case... Russia, on the Viking cruise, the ship's concierge told us there was a 52mm lens objective limit, well, I had an alternate 50-70mm with a legit objective... But at the first stop, I look around, see lots of big glass, swapped back to my 18-270mm never a problem. Back aboard I tried to talk to the concierge about it, he reverted to the rules, apparently it's a agreed on company rule, so they have to say it, but in practice, it's ignored No the permits, tho, docents watch, make sure, one stop in Moscow there was no obvious permit kiosk, but up on the floor a couple docent got uptight, but one of our guides gathered the rubles, got us permits, no problem... So ask, play the game...
