Favorite thing: Starting in 2007 Russia introduced the 5,000 ruble note.
Now the paper money coms in 5000, 1000, 500, 100, 500 and 10 rubles.
The dolalr has fallen in value against the Ruble and the Euro for several eyars now, in fact since the Euro was introduced.
Check teh current conversion rates:
Yahoo Currency converter
5000 rubles = about $200
1000 rubles= about $39
500 rubles = about $19
100 rubles = about $4

Fondest memory: Russian coins come in 5 ruble, 1 rubles and then kopeks, 50, 10 5 and 1 kopek.
100 kopeks = 1 ruble, so the kopek is really small in value, about 1/30th of a penny.
