#Russia — Travel Tips

Language

Russian is the official language across the country, but the 160 ethnic groups living here speak at least 100 other tounges, with the Russian Constitution giving individual republics and ethnicities permission to incorporate their own native languages co-officially with Russian. English is spoken to varied extents by those working in the tourism industry especially in Moscow and St Petersburg, but in remote regions it’s rare to find an English-speaker.

#Russia — Airports

Domodedovo International Airport

Moscow has three airports, with Domodedovo the largest and the main arrivals hub for visitors to Russia. Located 26 miles southeast of the city, the complex handles more than 25 million passengers a year at its single terminal, which is divided into domestic and international concourses. Transaero and S7 Airlines offer the most flights with domestic routes and international flights to Europe, the US and resort destinations.

Transaero is the main carrier from the USA, with connections via New York, Los Angeles, and Miami. The airline also flies to London Heathrow, along with British Airways. Other full-service carriers include Singapore Airlines, Thai Air, JAL, Cathay Pacific, Austrian, and Aeroflot. The terminal offers ATMs, currency exchange, facilities for families and the disabled, business lounges, car rental, and a good choice of retail shops, duty-free stores, coffee shops, bars, and restaurants. Onward transportation is via Aeroexpress train, bus, taxi, or limo.

#Russia — Transportation

Russian Federation Taxis and Car Rental

Getting around Moscow by car is, to put it mildly, hugely impractical due to the incredibly overcrowded, badly-maintained roads. The system wasn’t designed for the volume of traffic it gets today, and the Sadovoye ring road is often gridlocked for most of the day. Russian drivers aren’t known for their patience, and accidents are common. City parking is difficult, as spaces are often ’reserved’ for regular users, with unauthorized parking at risk of deliberate damage to the vehicle. If you’re planning a daytrip outside of the city, renting a car makes sense, especially if traveling in a group.

#Russia — Shopping and Leisure

Moscow’s central shopping area is clustered around the two major department stores, GUM and TSUM, whose extravagant design resembles that of a palace and is packed with luxury goods at high prices. For visitors, they’re a must-see destination due to their sheer impact, but purchases are best made elsewhere unless you have deep pockets. Popular souvenirs include beautifully-embroidered bed linen and traditional tunics for kids, the famous Russian lacquer boxes, and jewelry set with Siberian rhodonite, malachite, and charoite hardstones.
