  The Russian Rubble (1,000 Rubble notes)
by darthmilmo

Favorite thing: The Russians currency is the Rubble. It is further divided into Kopeks. You need not worry about carrying large chunks of Rubbles as there is at least one ATM on all major towns in Russia. If you do get out of the beaten path in the Altai or an obscure Siberian village then yes, take money with you. Otherwise, be prepared to use your ATM often. Traveler Checks are accepted in the larger cities, but other then that they may be harder to exchanger.
