Communal settlement in Russia?

Hi, I just started looking into moving to Russia, from Finland.

What is an easy way to get involved in a community?

For exemple via humanitarian work or with a community settlement/ collective?

(Need somewhere to sleep and some food only)


So that i can continue my efforts from there and find a job, and friends.


Anywhere in Russia will be good.

Thank you.

The main thing is to speak Russian, at least A1. If you do it, it will be easier to find connection. If you are coming as a tourist you will not be allowed to 'work', even if it's volunteerism or community work. For that you will need a work visa. To stay for more than 3 months you will need a temporary residence permit, which is not easy to get.
