During the epidemic, I have nothing to do at home anyway, and I want to write all the unwritten ones, so that I can have better memories when I get old in the future, and it will also be helpful to everyone.

English is one of main international languages ​​in the world today, also is the most widely used language in the world.

The depreciation of the ruble has reduced the cost of travel, and it is indeed quite cost-effective to travel to Russia now. English is not popularized in Russia, which invisibly adds fear and mystery to friends who want to travel to Russia. Many people will ask me some questions that they feel confused about her. Please ask The most important thing is food, housing and transportation, and language barriers. In order to meet everyone's needs, I will write down what I know in detail in an easy-to-understand manner.

The distance does not matter whether it is convenient or not. Saving money is the goal. The individual distances are not too far, and the four of us only take a taxi when we feel that it is cost-effective to take a taxi.


Every time I go to the supermarket to buy what I need in advance by train, I will focus on buying fresh and cheap local products.

The climate in Russia is dry, and the eating habits are not suitable. I want to drink some porridge for a long time. As long as time permits, no matter how tired I am, the little girl and I will insist on going to the vegetable market or supermarket to buy our own food. Traveling abroad is hard work and eating Not good, it will definitely affect your mood and itinerary. It is cheap and delicious to make your own food.

Russia mainly supports group tours.

If you take the train to Manzhouli, there is a shop on the first floor of Manzhouli Shopping Center that specializes in exchanging Russian rubles.

For those who choose to travel by air, there are cash machines and exchange places in the airport lobby. Many large supermarkets, shopping malls, and accommodations can be swiped by card. Huaxia Card does not charge a handling fee for the first payment. In some places in Russia, there are few cash machines, which is still a bit troublesome. It is done in advance at home, which is trouble-free, convenient, and safe in bad places.

This time, I have a strong immune system and took the medicine once, which shows that my physical fitness is not bad. Let them take all the medicines I have used it, because the weather is dry, the beauty has a bad cold and hoarse voice, my medicine is still not cured after taking the medicine, and the medicine bought in Russia is not effective, because Russian medicine generally does not contain antibiotics.

There are very few public toilets in Russia and there are charges. It is a difficult and annoying thing for travelers. There must be one near the train station. As long as there is a ticket, it is free. There are large supermarkets, coffee houses, hotels, and KFC. And it's free. When I encounter such an occasion, I must drink more water to solve it. Older people can't bear it like young people.

I usually drink as little water as possible when I go out. It is so painful and the most unbearable thing to find a bathroom in an emergency. If you find a routine, everything is OK.

Traveling poorly in Russia, why don't we choose international trains and choose to take Russian national trains after leaving the country?

Introduce the international train:

There are two international trains from Beijing to Moscow, K3 and K19.

Train K3 departs from Beijing Station at 11:22 and arrives at Moscow Station at 13:58 (Moscow time) 6 days later, via: Beijing, Zhangjiakou South, Jining South, Zhurihe, Erlian, Zamyn Uud, Saiyin Sandar, Joel, Ulaanbaatar, Zonghara, Darkhan, Sukhbaatar, Dodzolny (technical parking), Naushki, Jeddah, Ulan-Ude, Slyudyanka, Irkutsk, Jima, Nizhneudinsk, Ilanskaya, Krasnoyarsk, Malinsk, Taiga, Novosibirsk, Balabinsk, Omsk, Ishi Mu, Tyumen, Sverdlovsk, Perm, Baretsino, Kirov, Gorky, Vladimir, Moscow.

Train K19 departs from Beijing Station at 23:00 and arrives at Moscow Station at 17:58 (Moscow time) 7 days later, passing through: Beijing, Tianjin, Tangshan, Shanhaiguan, Jinzhou, Shenyang, Siping, Changchun, Harbin, Angangxi, Boktu , Hailar, Manzhouli, Zabaikalsk, Borja, Karemskaya, Chita, Shilok, Ulan-Ugye, Slyudyanka, Irkutsk, Jima, Utzes, Ils Kaya, Krasnoyarsk, Marinsk, Taiga, Novosibirsk, Balabinsk, Omsk, Ishim, Tyumen, Yekaterinburg, Perm, Baretsino, Glazov, Kirov, Nizhny Novgodero, Vladimir, Moscow.

To purchase this train ticket, you need to apply for an international visa to Moscow and a transit visa through Mongolia in advance.

After you understand the situation, you will understand that our choice is right. International trains need to apply for transit visas. The procedures are troublesome, the fees are high, and the time is long. Stop and cook for yourself. It can be described as comfortable, delicious food, low cost, good mood, seeing the most scenery, and learning more about folk customs.

International trains can only go to Moscow and we go to the Arctic Ocean in the northernmost part of Russia.

It’s really fun to spend the same money, why not do it!

Let me introduce our itinerary by train in Russia

Chita—————Ulan Ude 1343, 1 ruble (about 700 kilometers away) September 6

Ulan Ude——Irkutsk 606, 30 rubles (450 kilometers) September 7

Total train fare: 1343+606+2748+3303+1592+1751+2748+1272+2135=17498 rubles

Murmansk-Teriberka (a small settlement on the Arctic Ocean, under the jurisdiction of Murmansk Oblast), 150 kilometers away, 2,000 rubles for four people, 500 rubles per person, 1,000 rubles per person for a chartered car.

The traffic in Teriberka is inconvenient, because we booked the air tickets online in advance, and the time for visa application is approaching. In order to prevent the trouble of not being able to find the car on the return trip, we asked for the driver's phone number when we chartered a car for fear of being in trouble.

Most people in Russia feel to me that they are serious about what they do, and they will do what they say.

When we planned to leave, we contacted the driver the night before and arranged to arrive at 8 am the next morning. I went out to see if the driver had arrived. The driver arrived on time just after leaving the house. Because the driver kept his promise and arrived on time, we flew back to our motherland smoothly.

Introduce the Russian train:

Russian trains are all soft sleepers, which are divided into three classes. The third-class carriages are crowded with locals, safe, and the price is low. The crowded carriages do not feel cold.

Disposable bed sheets are charged, and the cost is more than 100 rubles. You can choose whether you want it or not. If you don’t want it, tell the conductor that you don’t want it when you buy a ticket. If you need to get on the bus, you can ask the flight attendant to buy it.

I bought a blanket for 20 yuan in Manzhouli in advance, so I don’t need to buy disposable sheets. The blanket is light and does not take up space, and it is very useful. Sometimes it can be used as a shawl when it is cold.

Bus, taxi, tram fare:

125+150+50+510+800+18+18+20+125+50+60+40+30+20+30+30+35=2111 rubles

Tickets: 900+700+600=2200 rubles

One-day tour of Lake Baikal 900 rubles (equivalent to RMB 90)

There are also high-cost tour groups in the local area. I am looking for a one-day tour with the accommodation owner. I have a meal at noon, five scenic spots, walk around Lake Baikal, stop at five different places to watch and take pictures, and get off at the fourth scenic spot. The car stays for an hour and a half, the driver starts to cook, and the meal is ready at the meeting time. After the meal, we go to the last scenic spot. It takes one day for a day trip. The car is leisurely and comfortable, and the price is reasonable.

A two-hour boat ride on the Neva River costs 700 rubles per person (equivalent to RMB 70).

St. Petersburg is a water city, composed of dozens of large and small islands and bridges, also known as the "Venice of the North". The Neva River is a major river running through the city of St. Petersburg. The Neva River originates from Lake Ladoga, flows from east to west, flows through St. Petersburg, and flows into the Gulf of Finland. The length of the river is 74 kilometers, and 32 kilometers lie within the boundaries of St. Petersburg.

No matter day or night, whether you are strolling along the river or taking a boat up and down the river, you can enjoy the scenery along the river, or taste the various bridges. If there is an open bridge, the two spans in the center of the bridge are suspended in the air, and the huge steel bridge raises its front hooves like a galloping horse, allowing the stranded ships to sail smoothly to the Gulf of Finland. The impression left is indelible.

Hermitage 600 rubles (equivalent to RMB 60)

It is worth seeing. There are detailed introductions on the Internet, so I will not introduce them one by one. Tickets are 600 rubles, and tickets can be bought at 10:30. There are automatic ticket vending machines at the gate, and you can also queue up to buy tickets.

The total cost of this trip to Russia, including food, lodging and travel: 8726 RMB

A few points should be noted:

1. When you leave the country, you will be asked to fill in a form. Be sure to put it away, and it will be collected when you return home.

2. Every carriage of the train has a door. Russians have a good habit. From sensible children, they know that the door should be opened lightly, and the door should be closed casually. Try not to let the third person hear you when you talk in public places. When you see someone resting It’s better not to talk, if you really have something to do, you can keep your voice down, so as not to affect the people who are resting, it’s convenient for yourself, and it’s also convenient for others.

3. Whenever you go to a new place, you must first read more and ask more questions, and abide by the local customs. No matter where you go, please queue up consciously when there are people.

4. Waiting for the bus in the waiting hall of the railway station, the seat is for people, and the luggage must be placed underground. The ground in Russia is very clean.

5. In places with many people, especially in prosperous areas, you must be careful about your mobile phone and bag. No matter where there are many people, there will be thieves. Do not go to places with few people when you are alone or when there are few people. Try not to go far in the dark, because the language barrier.

6. When you are walking, you must get out of the way when you see other people taking pictures. Small things depend on the quality of people.

7. When you need help, or ask others to help, please say: "Ni Hao". If you don't know English, you can use Chinese.

Once I was on a train and met a Chinese lady who had something to do and went to the train attendant and asked directly, "Hey, where is the thing?" Just after leaving, the conductor pouted to express his dissatisfaction.

When we go abroad, we represent a country. We are rich, but also spiritually rich. When others look down on us, do we also check our own behavior? A small action represents the civilization of a country. When you don’t understand, read more Learn, have time to look at social etiquette.

8. When traveling to Russia, you must be careful not to bring these things. The spicy chicken feet I bought before I left, I asked the driver what can I bring and what can’t I bring during the border inspection? He told me: meat, eggs, seeds. It’s really a lot of minds to ask in advance. If the border inspectors find out that it will not only be confiscated, but will also be fined heavily. I have to put it in the car. .

When we were waiting for the security check, we found that there were a lot of idle staff sitting there. It’s okay. When it was my turn to check, two staff came to check my bag seriously. It seems that these idle staff are specially targeting Chinese people, right? It's better to be careful everyone.

The overall national quality of Russia:

1. Russians are a nation that pays attention to gentlemanly demeanor, especially St. Petersburg people, who can be seen on various occasions, both men and women are neatly dressed. In the elevator, a man will offer to help you with your suitcases. No matter where you go, as long as there are people, you will automatically queue up, and no one will jump in the queue.

2. Please rest assured when walking on the roads in Russia. When crossing the roads and crossing the zebra crossing, not all cars in big cities will take the initiative to give way to pedestrians. The roads in Russia are wide, so you can relax safely.

3. I saw a mother with a girl on the bus, put the paper towels in the clothes bucket, and wrapped the apple cores in paper and put them in the children's schoolbags. They never littered. This time when I was flying back to China, I observed carefully and found that there were a lot of rubbish under the feet of three Chinese girls, and they were checking that there was no rubbish around foreigners. This problem really needs to be changed. Small things represent a country, love yourself, love the motherland, start from yourself, and develop good habits.

4. I went to the revolving door and observed carefully. When people pass by, I gently push it away.

5. They have a strong self-esteem. Some people say that Russians are a nation that does not like to admit mistakes. If you go to Russia, you will find that although some young people also worship foreigners, Russians generally do not worship foreigners, let alone be obsequious, and even have a little reservation. The smell of chauvinism in a big country, so that English road signs are rarely seen on the street (not very conducive to tourism). But they are also sometimes blindly proud and very stubborn.

6. Impatient mood, Russians like to drive fast and impatient. The cars of the Ministry of Internal Affairs on the street are galloping on the busiest street at a speed of at least 120 kilometers. At night, I really dare not walk on the street, because it will be unsafe than during the day. The speed is scary, and the sound sounds like a sports car.

7. On the Novosibirsk-Yekaterinburg train, I encountered a kind of impatience. We bought the middle berth, and we went around all day and wanted to eat some hot rice at night. The entire carriage was full of Russians who couldn’t find a place to sit. See There was an empty seat and I just sat in a corner to eat, and the people who came over asked me to go away with indifferent expressions. This is also the first time and the last time I encountered such indifference, a kind of impatience, a kind of helplessness, so I had no choice but to go to bed without washing.

To sum up, our friendly neighbor is a nation with high quality. Some things are beyond our reach. China's reform and development, such as the industriousness, intelligence and flexibility of the Chinese people.

Is Russia safe?

I personally feel very safe. There is only one beautiful woman who lost her mobile phone while taking the subway.


I often travel abroad and slowly sum up some experience from my experience. Traveling is mainly about equipment. I pay special attention to the equipment, which is demanding. The purpose is to make travel more enjoyable. If you are away for a long time, you need to consider the four seasons of the year. For example, when you go to Vietnam for the first time, the winter is so hot that you have to consider that mosquitoes need electrified mosquito coils. When you come back to Lijiang, it is like winter and you need to prepare enough clothes to keep warm. The less things you need to do when you are away from home, the better. You need to think carefully To not only less but fine but also to meet travel needs.

Umbrella use: Umbrellas can only protect against the sun and rain.

(2) Take a rest after washing and drying your hair to prevent headaches.

(3) If you feel uncomfortable after running for a day, blowing on Zusanli will help your legs recover.

For people who often suffer from neck pain, blow on the neck and temples at night to treat cervical spine headaches. Where to blow hard, a good way to promote blood circulation.

6. An outdoor flashlight.

7. Electric mosquito-repellent incense: odorless and effective in killing insects.

daily necessities;

1. Take a small piece of soap for bathing, shampooing, and laundry. It’s not too late to buy when you need it when you leave the country, so you can save money on consignment.

2. Stewing pot:

The vacuum smoldering pot series can be used for daily diet, porridge, soup, various dishes, It can be used for making desserts, and can be carried with you when you go to work or travel.

It's cold in Russia, and I get a sore throat just by drinking cold water.

This time with several uses:

1. Boil water.
