An Expat Talks about Moving to Moscow, Russia

Submitted by Zorillo420

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Moscow

Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.

Only hard to find food items like peanut butter, nothing significant.

What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

Do not come here if you don't speak Russian. Expect to robbed and ripped off, so don't complain when it happens. You must make a lot of contacts with locals to avoid this. This is not like America. There are no "bad neighborhoods".

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

A 2 room flat. I don't know if this is typical. I do not associate with expats.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

The internet

Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?

Much higher. I could rent a house on the beach in South Carolina for the price of a 2 room flat here. Expect to pay $1200-1800 a month if you live alone.

I think Zorillo420 may have quite a negative view of Russia, my experience has been much better than this.

HEY GUEST, I do not have a negative view of Russia. I LOVE MOSCOW. What makes you think I have had a bad experience? I guarantee my life in here is much more prosperous than yours! GUEST, you really say nothing helpful to anyone, why did you waste your time posting?
