Thanks Romaniac

+1 except that I’m going for the Egyptian team, will be staying in Moscow though

That's cool! Actually, I'm not into football, but I like watching it sometimes. If you need any help in Moscow I'd be happy to help. Maybe I will go to the world cup myself.  I'm sure it'll be cool! But I haven't bought any tickets yet.

Hi Maltsevalexey95,

That is wonderful you are coming to Moscow. You can find lots of interesing things here. There lots of museums and galleries.

@anouam4bubai > i don't think anyone will provide an invitation letter to someone found on the internet!

Hie.. I am a female solo traveller who is going to three places in Russia  (St Petersburgh, Kazan & Moscow) this July 2018. Kindly advice if it's safe for me to travel and walk around alone by myself. I am not going to watch football but just to want experience the World Cup fever.

Thank you ;-)

These three cities are safe enough if you take care. Do not drink alcohol with strangers. Avoid taxies who flock at airport and train terminals and metro stations, use Uber or Yandex.taxi apps. Read this website for more details. https://moscow-in-detail.com/
Pay particular attention to basic-information/security and basic-information/socialising sections.

It will help you plan you trip and save money.

Great advice was given by unclevova.
These are the most important things. I would say almost the same: never drink alcohol with strangers and avoid any conflicts with them (I saw a group of foreign football fans quarreling with locals - don't think this is a good idea). Use only official taxi services (the ones mentioned before) and reliable transfer ones (I can recommend this one https://kiwitaxi.com/en/russia). Private drivers may overcharge you (it is not a rare situation now). If you're going to use the metro, prepare some maps (for example, download them to your device) and attentively follow the signs at the stations in order not to get lost.

Another thing I would like to say is always respect the traffic rules. Thus, never cross the street when the light is red. Here, in Saint Petersburg, I've met some foreigners who did this. It's dangerous, and it's better to wait a little more than risk your life.
