"Learn to read Cyrillic before you go" Language Tip by sjvessey

Language, Moscow: 10 reviews and 5 photos

All the signs are in Cyrillic (Russian script), not Roman ("English") letters. It's relatively easy to learn the letter sounds of the Russian alphabet so if you have a couple of hours spare before you travel, I suggest you do so. It will make it a lot easier for you, particularly reading street signs. And a surprisingly large number of Russian words seem to be English ones that are simply written in Cyrillic. Like "stop" or "jackpot".

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
