Russia Warnings and Dangers: 101 reviews and 74 photos


Be careful because of thieves. Our bus was robbed while the driver was standing next to it. But then go to the polivce because sometimes their know their people and wherer to look. We got EVERYTHING back within a few hours!
Carrying a plastic bag (put your camera in it) will attract less thieves than a daypack/backpack.
Don't cross fences, don't walk on red lights in Moscow 'cause this will get you into trouble with the always present policemen. It can get reduce your budget very well to pay 10$ fines everyday to get rid of them...
