Traveling in Moscow

Moscow is a beautiful city waiting to be discovered. It is a very easy city to navigate with a very efficient metro, regular taxis, easy transport to urban transport and rather a unique taxi taxi. Even the English-speaking hospital system, if unexpected.

Taxis – In Moscow, traffic is renamed to be heavy, so there is a high risk of being stuck in traffic jam. As for financial management, there is also a chance. If your taxi does not have a gauge, you will arrive at the fare agreement before you get to the taxi. If your taxi does not have a gauge, beware of scenery to make sure they are not in circles. English is not widely spoken, so your destination address is written in Russian and ask your hotel if it gives you an idea of ​​the approximate fare.

Civil taxi – Another alternative to getting around Moscow was private cars. Just stand on the side of the road, the waves and cars stop. Tell the driver where you want to go and negotiate the price. Helps to know Russian to avoid misunderstanding. The incidents are obviously quite rare, but they still help keep you confident. Enter the destination address again in Russian.

Moscow Metro – Metro all over the world is an easy way to get around the map in any language and more in Moscow. The cost of a metro journey is flat, no matter where you are traveling, so it is easy to buy a ticket using the sign language.

Tip – If you want to buy two separate tickets for two ATMs, they both go to the counter, otherwise you can get one ticket valid for two trips.

You also have to pay for your luggage (the same price per piece per person), however compared to travel costs elsewhere it's still a cheap way.

English is available at checkout. There are not many English available in the metro, but maps in English are available. Station names are also not clearly visible from the inside of the train, so it helps count stops. All rows are color coded, so it takes only one or two days before you reach the Moscow subway.

Arrival and departure from the airport without a taxi – Recommended for light passengers (small suitcase). That could not be easier. Aeroexpress is now available at the main Moscow airports to the subway. Walking from the train station to the metro may take some time to negotiate, so you have a copy of the metro map to show people to show you the right direction. Aeroexpress is a great alternative if your hotel in Moscow is located near a metro stop

Waiting In Line – Russians spend a lot of time on the queues, so be prepared if you have to wait.

Is there a doctor there in the house? – West, the need arises when overseas see a doctor. The American Medical Center in Moscow has English-speaking staff and are ready to help. Make a call in advance and order a meeting. The pharmacy is just around the corner, also

When traveling, be sure to close your travel insurance. Expect unexpected. A trip to a doctor for a simple illness in Moscow can cost $ 300.00. Imagine if a major accident occurred.

If you can not afford travel insurance, you can not afford to travel

I loved Moscow. Sure, you too.
