Public transport

The main mode of transport in Moscow is Moscow metro (subway). You may use an online interactive map to get directions. Other modes of public transport include bus, trolleybus and tramway. The optimal way to pay during short visits is Troika card, a stored-value card similar to Oyster Card or Metrocard. It is sold at metro cash desks and may be recharged at ticket machines. The card itself costs 50 rubles which may be returned back before departure. One ride in the subway costs 28 rubles, one ride at a surface transport costs 26 rubles, and also there is a combined fare of 44 rubles for 90-minute journey consisting of one subway ride and any number of bus/trolleybus/tramway rides.

General

  • Money: Roubles. Use bank offices ("Банк" in Russian) to exchange currency or use your own bank card from home at an ATM to draw money directly from your checking account. Also, Visa and MasterCard are accepted in most restaurants and shops.
  • Tipping: 5%-10% are expected in any cafe, bar, and restaurant.
  • Electricity: 230 V, 50 Hz with either Schuko or Europlug.
  • Telephone: Public phones are extremely rare. Use your own mobile phone or buy a prepaid SIM card if needed.
  • Weather: You will find the current forecast here.


Stay safe

  • Use common sense: avoid dark alleys and keep an eye out for pickpockets in train stations, on the metro, and in crowded tourist areas.
  • Keep your passport with you. The police might demand to see your papers.
  • Use pedestrian crosses to cross the street.
  • Do not drink the tap water.
