Euros and US dollars are exchanged in all exchange places. Other currencies may cause difficulties (bad rate or currency is not accepted). At the moment, the average rate is 37.20 RBL for 1 euro and 23.60 RBL for 1 USD. Keep in mind that some banks and exchange places use the following cheating trick: outside the exchange office they advertize a "good" exchange rate but "term and conditions apply": usually you have to exchange more than 499 dollars (euros) to have this good exchange rate.

Be careful and do not exchange the currency NEAR the exchange offices when the private persons offer it.

Personal and Traveller's checks, as well as credit cards, are usually accepted at all major banks in the city. VISA and MASTER cards are accepted in some shops and restaurants.



In order to use the metro you must buy tokens. One token costs 17 roubles. In buses, trams and trolley-buses you must pay to a ticket-collector. One ticket costs 16 roubles.

There are also commercial buses (marked by letters T or K) There, you also pay to a ticket-collector. In commercial minibuses you pay to the driver. The price is usually indicated on the front window and at the entrance (about 20-22 roubles).

Please be very careful with your luggage, bags, purses, credit cards, etc., especially on the transport and in shops!



By the way, eating places in Russia are usually called cafes $K A \Phi E$. So, a "cafe" is a small-size restaurant or a diner, not a coffee-house. The word "restaurant" usually implies that this is a luxuary or expensive eating place, so no wonder that many diners try to avoid calling themselves restaurants. There are very good cafes and not-so-good cafes, the same applies to restaurants.



There are public phones in the city. Some accept coins, some accept phone cards (it depends on the phone). You can buy phone cards at metro stations.



The weather is variable. The average temperature in June is about 15C. So, usually it is about 20/22C during the day. It may be rainy.



Like in many other tourist centers in the world, there are pickpockets and thieves who target foreign tourists. Don't carry large sums of money with you. Always have the phone number of your bank to be able to quickly block your credit card transactions in case they are stolen.


Looking forward to meeting you in St. Petersburg.
