<p>Learn the Cyrillic alphabet!
</p><p>During our visit, we took the trouble to learn the pronunciation of the Cyrillic alphabet and it really helped us to get around. It isn't too difficult to master despite many of the letters being pronounced differently to English. You will be surprised to find that many of the words that you decifer turn out to be similar to their English translation. </p><p>There isn't much written in English in Russia so it really helps if you can read Cyrillic signs even if you can't understand them
