Money


The national currency of Russia is rouble (divided into 100 kopecks). The coins (1, 5, 10 and 50 kopecks, and 1, 2, 5 and 10 roubles) and the notes in 10, 50, 100, 500, 1000 and 5000 roubles are in circulation.  The Central Bank sets the exchange rate to foreign currencies on the daily basis, but any banking establishment operating at the territory of the country has a right to set independently the currency exchange rate: usually it is displayed at the entrance to the exchange point.

The simplest and safest method to exchange money (usually Euros or US dollars) is to go to the banks’ branches (some of them operate 24h), but standard working hours – 10:00 to 19:00. Currency can be exchanged in the hotels or to receive roubles in cash via ATMs, which accept the cards of all the main payment systems (Visa, MasterCard etc.). You may use the cards for purchases in the cities, since many cafes, restaurants and shops accept them for payment. The main rule of safety at currency exchange in the Russia – do not use services of private persons, and exchange your currency as may be necessary without exchanging big sums at once.

You may find a current exchange rate of rouble to main world currencies on the official website of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (www.cbr.ru, English version is available), and addresses of the nearest exchange points can be advised in the hotels.  As a rule the ATMs of the most known banking establishments in the Russia can be found in hotel lobbies, underground stations and in large shops.
