I've seen ads for apartments where 50,000 RUB per month looks like the cheapest available. Yet this is more than double what teachers seem to make. Nevermind all one's others expenses. What am I missing?

Maybe if you want a place in the center with all the amenities. Hell you can likely find something on airbnb for 50k a month.

Thank you. Could you point me to a source of what might be considered more modest accommodation? What might be an average 1-bedroom amount? Thanks.
