Trip Preperation and General Infromation
Some introduction services will send you alone into the great unknown to meet only a few ladies. You will be put into an apartment, exposed to great danger, inconvenience, and periods of isolation. This is not a trip! It's hit or miss at that point. At best, your local hosts will be grossly incompetent. If at all possible, please go within the safety and convenience of a trip where you will meet far more quality ladies.

Money & Costs
Currency: Russian Rubl' (RU)
Budget meal: US $5-15
Moderate restaurant meal: US $30-50 Top-end restaurant meal: US $60+
Budget room: US $10-25 Moderate hotel: US $30-60 Top-end hotel: US $60+
Food is ridiculously cheap in Russia, and accommodation isn't much more, especially outside Moscow. You can travel comfortably for around US $50-$100 a day, though prices are 15-30% higher in the capital. If you stick to mid-range * restaurants and hotels, you can expect to spend around US $50 a day. If you self-cater, share accommodation and rely solely on public transport you can reduce your costs even further. Exchange kiosks have the best rates, while hotels generally have the worst.
Hard currency can be changed into rubl' anywhere, but travelers' checks are only accepted at certain banks and exchange offices in a few larger cities, you can bring credits cards and use ATM machines, but please check with your bank if it operates in Russia and if you'll be able to use your card abroad. You'll need to bring wads of cash, the most commonly accepted being the US dollar and Euro. Using hard currency in restaurants and retail shops has been officially banned, but many services aimed at foreign tourists are exempt from this ruling and expect hard currency. At upscale tourist-oriented eateries, a tip of about 5-10% is expected; many include a 5% service charge in your bill, and you can add a bit more for excellent service. Haggling at the country's many food, art, souvenir and craft markets is expected and sometimes fierce.
Features of Russian etiquette
Here are a few simple rules of etiquette that may help you out of trouble or embarrassment when visiting Russia
- If invited into a family home, it is traditional to bring a gift: a bottle of wine, a cake. A bouquet of flowers is customary. IF YOU BRING
FLOWERS - make sure it is an uneven number of flowers. If there is a child in the house, it is appropriate to provide him/her with a small
gift as well.
- When shaking hands, take off your gloves!
- Be prepared to remove your shoes upon entering a home.
- To keep apartments or homes clean, most hosts will provide you with a pair of slippers called "tapochki". The "i" at the end of "Tapochki"
is pronounced as in "hit"
- On public transportation give up your seat to mothers with children, the elderly or the infirm
- At the entrance of upscale restaurants, expect that a coatroom attendant will check your coat, briefcase or baggage.
- When eating dinner at someone's home, casual dress is recommended.
- Be ready to give toasts at dinner, for guests are often asked to do so.
- Offer to share your snacks and cigarettes with those around you.
- Be prepared to accept all food and drink offered you when visiting friends or relatives.
- Russians are known for their generous hospitality when it comes to feeding others. Turning down food maybe considered rude.
- For business, dress should be conservative. Men should not take off their jacket unless asked to do so.
- In Orthodox churches women wear scarves or hats, and men take off their hats.
- Don't put your thumb between your first two fingers - this is a very rude gesture. It's called "Doolya" and has been used as a symbol of defiance against Russia's invaders and oppressors for centuries. If you feel you must make this gesture, be certain your hand remains hidden in your pocket!
Some things to know about Russians:
- Family ties are of great importance. Parents are addressed in plural as a sign of respect.
- Every hostess strives to impress her guests with a great variety and quantity of prepared dishes.
- The national cuisine is distinguished by creative use of salads, savoury pastries, onions, peppers, garlic, pickles, breads and tortes.
- We love pork fat (raw, salted or smoked) with rye bread and garlic.
- In the past and occasionally today (not in cities, of course) , in refusing a marriage proposal a girl would just hand a pumpkin to her suitor.
- Speeches and toasts are common during a meal: to the hosts, parents, guests, etc. The 3rd, the 6th and the 9th toasts are always to the ladies.
- We are great barbecue enthusiasts. Meat is prepared (marinated beforehand) ? delicious!
- Our Christmas is celebrated on January 7th according to the Julian calendar.
- Whether in a big city or in the countryside we like to own some land for gardening.
- Landlords often keep the best room in their country home (dacha) for guests, but never actually live there.
It is considered bad luck:
• To shake hands and handle things over a threshold.
• To pour drinks in a glass, which is held in hand.
• To whistle indoors (you will whistle away your good fortune)
• To open an umbrella indoors and hold it up.
