Budgeting in Russia
When planning a trip, especially a Trans-Siberian adventure, one important factor is how much money you'll need when you're actually there.
In a country as vast as Russia, and especially the Trans-Siberian which spans three countries, prices can greatly vary. If you're visiting large cities, like Moscow, Beijing, St. Petersburg, you can expect things to be more expensive but it is still easy to make your budget work.
We've put together a short guide on the average amount you can expect to pay for some everyday expenses and services while exploring the cities and adventuring along Russia's railways.
