Mistakes expats make in Russia

Hello everyone,

Did you make any mistakes when you first moved to Russia? What were they?

How did you address your mistakes? Did you learn anything from them?

With hindsight, what would you do differently?

Are there any tips you could give future expats in Russia to help them avoid these kinds of mistakes?

We look forward to hearing from you!


If you are traveling alone in Russia then please don't go any  tourist area near to border before approval. If you will go there then FSB will grab you that will be most dangerous for you.They are allowed to shoot anyone seems near to border.
