Moscow is a beautiful city just waiting to be discovered. It's a very simple city with a very efficient subway, regular taxi services, easy airport with city transport services and a very unique taxi. Unexpected events also contain an English-speaking hospital system.
Taxis – Traffic in Moscow is difficult, so there is a high risk of traffic jams. As a matter of fact, they want a financial trip, this is a chance. If the taxi does not have a meter, then come with the fare agreement before you arrive at the taxi. If the taxi does not have a meter, pay attention to the landscape and make sure it does not circulate around. English is not widely spoken, so the address of the destination is written in Russian and ask the hotel if they can give you ideas about upcoming fares.
Citizen Taxis – Another alternative to getting into Moscow is a private car float. Just stand on the edge of the road, the wave and the cars will stop. Tell the driver where he wants to go and negotiate a price. It helps to know some Russian languages to avoid misunderstandings. The incidents are obviously very rare, but they still help keep your self-consciousness away. Again, you have to enter the destination address in the nose.
Moscow subway station – Metros worldwide can easily access the map in any language and even more in Moscow. The cost of traveling on the metro is flat, no matter where you are traveling, so you can easily buy tickets in sign language.
Tip: If you want to buy two separate tickets for two people from a cashier, they both go to the counter, otherwise you can get a ticket for two tickets. You also have to pay for your luggage (the same per piece per person per person), but compared to the cost of travel it is still a cheap travel form.
Available in English on ticket machines. Not many English are available in the subway, but English maps are available. Station names are also not visible well within the train so they can count the stops. Each line is color-coded, so it takes only one or two days to get the voice of the Moscow subway.
Getting to the airport by taxi and airport – Recommended for light travelers (small suitcase). It could not have been easier. Aeroexpress is now available from the major Moscow airports to the metro. From the train station to the metro, we can walk a little trial so there is a copy of the metro map to show people in the right direction. Aeroexpress is a great alternative if your hotel in Moscow is located near a subway station http://www.aeroexpress.ru/en/index.htm
Waiting in line – The Russians spend a lot of time in queues so you have to wait to wait. – There is obviously a need to go overseas to go to a doctor. The American Medical Center in Moscow has English speaking staff and is ready to help. Phone in advance to make an appointment. There is a pharmacy on the corner. http://www.amcenter.ru/en/
While traveling, do not forget to take travel insurance. Consider the unpredictable. A trip to a doctor for a simple illness in Moscow can cost $ 300. Imagine a serious accident.
If you can not afford travel insurance, you can not afford to travel. I love Moscow. I'm also sure.
