Currency

The official currency in Russia is Russian Rouble. There is no limit on the amount of foreign currency that can be brought to Russia. However if you plan to bring more than US$ 10,000 you need to declare the amount at customs.

US dollars and Euros can be changed in banks, exchange offices and international hotels. The current exchange rate is available at the web-site (http://www.cbr.ru/eng). Credit cards are accepted by most hotels and big stores. However we recommend you to check whether the type of a card you have is accepted before you make a purchase.
