Russia's second largest city, St. Petersburg, is home to approximately 5.5. million people. The city has cold winters and cool summers (highs in upper 60s to low 70s). The cost of living in St. Petersburg is relatively low, but you will find some rentals that compare with New York and London rates (don't fall for them). If you're moving here, find a trustworthy Russian friend to help you search for an apartment and get settled.
