It used to be the USSR thread

Also, it would get very confusing when asking questions regarding Crimea

What is the better option for Shabbos? Moscow or St. Petersburg?

Both have shuls within walking distance to the prime hotels. Moscow has a larger local community but St Petersburg has beautiful Paris style gardens and etc to visit on Shabbos afternoon

I always bring in $500 - $1000 cash & exchange some of it somewhere in the city (not the airport) after checking the official rates, just google "1USD to RUB" for instance.

For everything else I use my Paypal debit card (many ATM's worldwide do not charge fees, Paypal takes $1.50 per transaction, but I found their exchange rates to be reasonable)

AmEx is not commonly accepted, but Visa & Mastercard should be fine.

I always have 100 ILS, 50 EUR, 50 GBP, 200 UAH etc - all in smaller bills & coins in a small wallet that I keep in my backpack. It has saved me several times already.

Taki Da in Kiev has great food and prices. A google search will pull it up. What type of place you looking to stay in?

I see there's a lot of  4 and 5 star hotels that are available for bargains Like 30 to $50 per night What would be the best hotel to choose? the best would be not to far from the Synagogue on 21 Osipova St.
