Day-to-day Living in Russia

How do I get around?

There is a good transport network in Russia, with 87,157km of rail network, which also operates rapid transit systems. There are rail links with the following adjacent countries to make travelling easier: Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia and North Korea. There is also a highway network of 948,000km, enabling easy access by car. Bus routes span all over Russia, with very low prices for travelling. However, ticketing processes, queues, low quality, poor comfort and Russian-only speaking operators mean using buses is hard for foreigners.

How do I get there?

Many operators run low cost flights to Russia, prices can be around £200 return from the UK. Many flights are around 3 hours in journey time.
