Hey guys, welcome to my channel Guess where I am I’m in Moscow. This video will be about top 5 things you don’t know about Russia but you totally should know them if you want to come here or if you’re planning your trip just random facts you wouldn’t find on wikipedia or other sources when you googling like places to see in Moscow. or thing to do in Moscow. This is going to be my view of the city and the country in general So let’s start. Okay guys Here’s my fact. Everything is in Russian. You should learn Russian before coming here because all the signs in the ungerground are in Russian, all the names of the stations are in Russian And if you can’t read in Russian you should find somebody who speaks English and help you and not all Russian speak English actually, not many Russian speak English at all. Here is some exhibition in front of the main church in Russia. And it’s all in Russian. All in Russian. Behind me is the exchange rate of Russian ruble. They give you around 65 rubles for dollar. And 72 rubles for euro. The prices in Russia are really low. So if you take an Uber and it drives for like 20 minutes they would charge you 5 dollars. Maybe less. If you go to a restaurant we just went to a fancy restaurant, we had lunch we had sushi we had fish we had bread and drinks and it was less than 20 dollars for 2 people Russia is really nice in terms of food especially quality – price balance really good in terms of transport Sometimes it’s easier and cheaper for you to take an Uber than to take metro for example because 1 ride on moscow metro is little less than 1 $ So save your time and drive with comfort around Moscow. Be aware of traffic in Moscow too many cars I use google to navigate around Moscow. it shows you how crazy the traffic is everyone is so nervous they use horns all the time and also sometimes we have russian’s official coming and they’d close every single street and people will be standing and waiting for their security and these guys to come through. So just be aware and We crossed in red. You can hear.. I don’t know if it somebody’s coming or something’s happening. Don’t really take an Uber during the day especiallu from 5 to 7 wouldn’t be the best idea and in the morning. But 11 am and then till 5 pm should be fine. It’s 5 pm now and you see it’s getting really busy. Another fact that you’d probably known but haven’t realised the scale of it Moscow has around 11 million inhabitants. which means there are 11 million people in one city and if you’re from a small town you’d be overwhelmed with amount of people around here I feel a little scary sometimes because so many people in the underground you won’t be able to sit down in the train you have to squuize and find a place. Today is Saturday so it’s not that busy. But you should be aware a lot of people. Look at all the people So many people everywhere especially in a rash hour All of those guys who’ve just finished work heading back home so be aware of them. And everything is under construction ’cause they’re renevating the centre and hope that won’t renovate it for 70 years! And the thing I said about nice girls. Sometimes central Moscow looks really weird we’re really close to the centre and the houses are not that impressive and looks like they’re not taken care of And you can see all of different styles of architecture You can see modern houses, soviet houses and it looks a little weird because in bigger cities you see some style or the style that is used to decorate the buildings but here they’re all very different an appartment in such a house costs 1 million $ because it’s very central but the houses are not really nice.
