What to bring when travel to Russia
« on: January 10, 2010, 07:11:22 AM »
there are a lot of things you might want to brign to Russia.
There also a lot of things you can easy find in the shops in Russia.
So, it is a 21 century and if you really need something you just have to say about it in the store and most people will understand what you need and will be very willing to help you find it, even in the same store!

Some things you might consider to brign for fast and easy use.

- A power converter and adaptor for your noutbook computer. Russian standard is 220 Volts AC, 50 Hz. If bringing a laptop or other electronics from US, bring an RJ-11 adaptor for the Russian plug, preferably with two RJ-11 sockets.
- If you bring cell phone be sure it works on one of the these standards: NMT-450, GSM 900/1800 (not GSM 1900), AMPS/D-AMPS.
- Photocopy of your passport and visa. You may keep it separate in your suitcase, just for in case.
-  If using camera and films, APS, be sure to bring enough films, as APS films is not sold in many shops in Russia. They might not match your camera.
- Travel alarm clock  may be very useful if you have a tight schedule.
- Phone numbers of all of your Russian and American contacts. It would be better to have 2 copies on the paper and keep one in you suitcase.
- Phone numbers of the US Consulate in St. Petersburg and the Embassy in Moscow.
-  Flashlight

You can buy adapters in Circuit City or Best Buy
