Prices in cities of Russia
The most expensive prices are in the cities of the Far North (Anadyr, Magadan, etc.). Then, prices come in such cities as Moscow, St. Petersburg and Khabarovsk. For example, in Anadyr the cost of living is more than 55,000 rubles a month, and in Moscow it’s more than 46,000 rubles a month. Of course, all these figures are very conditional, because everyone has their own expenses.
The most expensive housing is in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Khabarovsk. And, of course, in the cities of the Far North.
For example, renting a one-room apartment in Moscow will cost from 28,000 rubles a month, and in Orel city it will cost from 8000 rubles a month. As you can see, the difference is quite significant.
By the way, with a long-term lease, you will also have to pay for utilities (electricity, cold and hot water, sanitation, garbage collection, etc.).
The cost of public transport varies greatly depending on the city. In Moscow, it goes up to 57 rubles for a single metro trip. If you want to reduce costs, pay attention to transport cards.
It is better to order a taxi through apps. Otherwise, the risk of fraud is too high. And be careful, fake money is widespread in Russia.
Food prices in Russia are approximately the same, except cities of the Far North, where prices are much higher.
The quality of food in Russian stores is far from ideal. Buying good food is not an easy task. By good food, I mean something meeting the following requirements: fresh, natural, with high quality ingredients (for a number of products), stored properly.
The situation is especially bad with many fruits and vegetables, because they are grown using a lot of chemical fertilizers. Also, GMPs are often used.
There are problems with sausage. Bad products are added into sausage and meat products, in order to reduce production expenses. Alas, this is normal in Russia.
