Before you go to Russia, do yourself a favour and learn Russian letters. It will be a big help when shopping and reading signs in the street, airport etc. Also notice that the way of shopping in Russia is quite different from other places. In many shops the process is as follows: Find out the price of the product you are going to buy. Go to the cash register and pay the price. You will get a receipt. Take the receipt to the counter, where you will get your product. Even though many things have happened in Russia since communism and it 's changed very much. I like to stay here and you will enjoy it too.
