     Read this 1st ----------> You’ve probably seen movies or videos about Russia, where people drink beer in parks, but now it’s prohibited by law. Actually, you can only drink alcohol at home or in joints. Low-alcoholic drinks (like beer) are allowed in some cinemas and mall food courts, but only if you buy it there. The fine for drinking alcohol in a public place ranges from 500 rubles ($9) to 1,500 rubles ($26).

    years ago one could smoke almost everywhere: In airports, cafés, trains. But now you can only smoke in the street (but not closer than 15 meters from the entrance of metros and railways stations), in your own car, and in special smoking rooms (“ ” in Russian). The fine for smoking in these places is also 500 to 1,500 rubles. What about a balcony? Good question. In November 2017, Russia’s Supreme Court ordered some people who smoked on their balcony to pay their compensation. So it’s a bad idea. And don’t forget, in you can only smoke tobacco - not the green stuff.

    In Russia, a policeman can stop and check your ID or passport. Police have the right to hold a person (not only foreigners) for three hours to establish their identity. Remember to be polite with police: You don’t have to worry if you don’t do anything wrong. Here is the ultimate guide what to do if you’re stopped by Russian police.

    Imagine, your Russian friends invite you to a party and start feasting on tasty dishes and alcohol. According to Russian tradition, you should not eat after the first glass of vodka, and there’s no break between the first and second glass. The third glass usually goes down soon after the second. If you’re late for the party, Russians can make you drink a “penalty” glass. Russian parties usually last for several hours and include multiple toasts. Don’t compete with Russians at drinking! But if you do, make sure to line your stomach with lots of food first. Traditional mayonnaise salads are good for this.

    is no special way to address a man or woman in Russian, like “mister” or “misses.” So young people are often called “girls”/”boys” (“ ”/” ”) and “grannies”/”grandpas” (“babushka”/” ”) - but it’s not clear how to address middle age Russians. Somehow the address “woman” / “man” (“ ”/ “ ”) sounds offensive in Russian, so it’s better to find out the name of a person or just to avoid addressing them formally.

    Such talk is considered private in Russian. A woman can ask another woman about her age, but a man should not ask a woman how old she is. The same applies to salaries. You can discuss your own with Russians, but don’t expect them to open up about theirs.

    This is an unwritten rule around the world, and Russia is no different. It’s common practice to give up a seat for a senior person or pregnant woman. Actually, some Russian men don’t sit a woman is standing nearby. Such gentlemen!

    offers you a new iPhone on a street...maybe they really need some money, but most likely they’re trying to scam you by flogging a stolen device. If you want to buy a phone, visit an official mobile shop.

    The same thing with money. There’s no guarantee the money will be real if you don’t go through an official channel. Fake exist and if you use a back office in a street you might end up holding a load of duds. If you don’t go to the bank, hotels will change money but the rates might be a little higher.

    1. Smile too much at

    “don’t” seems bizarre only at the first glance. Russians only tend to smile to their close acquaintances and may feel uncomfortable if a stranger smiles at them.

    Why don’t Russians smile? Read this story and find it out.

    Depends on the law.

    Depends if the local police charge you .

    ALL of the laws of any country apply also to visitors in country. The penalties are not identical around the world for every possible bad thing you might do.

    Russian law would apply to you. If serious, such as drug charges, you may later be charged in your home country. Small violations such as speeding may be overlooked such as 47kph in a 40 zone. As an American, driving for 26 years in Russia, l have had a few such offences overlooked. I'll bore you with one from almost 2 decades ago. We were 450 km from home and I joined the cars in an artificial lane we created to by-pass trafic and making a left turn at a light. So I was speaking to the officer (in POOR) Russian-I told him my baby was in the ar. How old?, he asked. 9 DAYS, I said... he handed back my documents, reached up in his car, took down some documents from the visor, handed them to me and said "return these to the police in Udmurtia" (200 or so km away) as an officer from there had left them behind. So I took the task and did not get a fine. I feel ANY Russian with a 9 day old would have drawn a bye, though.

    Funny, it is or was illegal to smoke Cuban cigars outside USA a few years ago. So in addition, even if it is legal in another country (pot in Amsterdam) (prostitution in Thailand or anywhere...) you can be charged in USA if you post your activities on Instatgeek or Fakebook. not wise...

    That building that looks like Christmas candy is actually a prison. You'll be held there indefinitely with bears who have been retired from the circus due to aggression issues.
