"Not a warning per se, but my..." Language Tip by solyoung

Language, Moscow: 10 reviews and 5 photos

Not a warning per se, but my strongest recommendation - Learn the Cyrillic alphabet before arriving. Signs in Moscow are mostly in Cyrillic (other than the most important ones). If you're going to use the Metro, you NEED to be able to understand the map and figure out where you are. Likewise, using an English map of the metro is useless since there aren't any signs in the metro that are in English. It only takes a few hours to learn it... practice a few hours about a week before leaving and then practice again on the flight and you'll probably be ok.
