Questions and answers:

Walter asks: Hello again. How long it takes to travel from Moscow to Saransk by car? Is the road ok? can we trust google info?
Expert's answer:
It takes about 11 hours to go from Moscow to Saransk by car, the distance is about 689 km. We don't recommend long distance traveling around Russia by car. This is not safe, the quality of roads leaves much to be desired, plus drivers in Russia are not very disciplined. The safest and cheapest way is to go by train. Free trains will be available during the World Cup.
Walter asks: I want to travel to Saransk from Moscow, do you know if new flight connections will be added for the World Cup?
Expert's answer:
I haven't found any info about additional flights during the World Cup, but, at the moment, there is already a number of daily flights from Moscow to Saransk available, from all three major Moscow airports (Sheremetyevo, Domodedovo, Vnukovo). You can find the timetable of flights on the site of the airport of Saransk. You can use this service to translate sites.

Shura asks: How well can one live in Vladivostok on 11,000 Rubles per month? How well on 54,000 Rubles per month?
Expert's answer:
11,000 Rubles per month is not enough to live in Vladivostok. In 2017, the average salary in the city was about 50,000 Rubles per month. So 54,000 Rubles is a decent salary there.

william asks: I'm looking for Theater street in Ivanovo Russia 153000. Is there such a street?
Expert's answer:
Yes, there is Teatralnaya Street in Ivanovo, you can see on Google Maps. Also, as we receive a lot of similar requests, our advice is not to send any help to a person in Russia before you are absolutely sure that this person is real. Otherwise you are doing it on your risk.
Robert asks: Is Rostov a safe place to visit?
Expert's answer:

Rostov-on-Don is among top 10 most criminal cities in Russia. So from this point of view it is not a very safe city. However, if you are concerned about safety during the World Cup 2018, then during this time, special efforts will be made to ensure security, so a visit to the city will be relatively safe.

I would recommend that you still follow such simple precautions as always keep your documents, tickets, cards, cash with you because thefts are still very possible. You should also avoid walking alone in the evening/night time especially not in the central part of the city.

The following taxi companies in Irkutsk offer their services in the local airport: first, second. You can use this service to translate sites automatically. The cost is about 5-10 USD. The airport is located within the city limits, relatively close to the center. You can also make a request to your hotel, maybe they can provide shuttle service.
