Moscow, Russia travel tips

Top Tips view all
1 Don't be afraid to use the metro, which is efficient and clean.
2 Don't take photographs of police or other official looking people.
3 Don't keep all of your money with you. In case of pickpockets, it's a good idea to keep some in a separate location.
4 Mineral water is often served in restaurants. If you don't care for it, be sure to ask for "voda byez gaz," which is Russian for "water without gas."
5 Wine-lovers should sample Georgian wines while in Russia. They're excellent.
6 To experience a bit of Russian opulence, be sure to visit Arkhangelskoe Estate. It's a bit outside the city, but well worth the trip.
