Hello, I hope this helps, I have spent over two years in Russian over the last 10.

1. Not to bad about 20% of younger women speak some English.

2. Crime is not to bad, just make sure you stay in a nice hotel. Apartments can be extremely dangerous. I have had lots of friends robed in apaprtments.

3. Take new hundred dollar bills, do not exchange them on street. ATM cards work and most nice places take credit cards. Travels checks are a big hassle to cash and they charge a percentage. then you also get bad exchange rate. So you can lose about 20%

4. Metro is the best way to get around, Jipsy cabs are much cheaper then regular cabs. Never take a cab sitting in front of a hotel or night club. They will charge you 10 times the regular amount.

Some good advice

Hello, if you want some really good advice. I suggest to call in a AFA's live phone conference. They have about 50 guys on each week many have travels to russia.
They can give a lot of insight to Russian women. I have included so of their text from their home page:


Announce a part of A Foreign Affair's only live telephone discussion group as our panel answers your questions concerning Russian brides, immigration issues, cultural differences and Russian marriage services/Romance Tours. Our panel will include Maria V. Jones, Immigration Attorney and Vice Chairperson of the Immigration section of the State Bar of Arizona, John Adams, President of A Foreign Affair, past Romance Tour clients and real Russian ladies who have married American men and are now living in the USA. You will be joined by up to 50 callers from around the world for an hour of informative, current and important information for anyone considering meeting and marrying a foreign bride.

Please join us every Monday evening from 9PM to 10PM, Eastern Standard Time. Participation is easy and FREE (normal long distance charges will apply).
