They are generally overpriced and bland in comparison to the local restaurants, plus the experience will be memorable! Simply explore the backstreets and keep an eye out for local eateries where the locals are enjoying a meal – you will often save money and also taste authentic Russian food that hasn’t be adapted for the benefit of foreign visitors.
  • Use the Metro – Like your choice of eatery, follow the locals. The Metro is by far the best way to get around cities like Moscow and with clear maps (that might or not be translated into English) and cheap fares this is definitely the best transportation option you will find in the larger cities. As a backup, download the Russian version of Uber, this may come in handy for late nights and early mornings.
  • Dress for the Conditions – Do not think for a minute you can get away with a light jacket in Russia in the middle of winter. Different regions may be warmer than others bit it’s always best to be prepared.
