Enjoy a Comfortable Life in Russia

Russia has always seen a wide variety of expatriate workers come to the country throughout its history, particularly in the two major cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg. With the west firmly ensconced in the traditions of Europe, and other regions having their own distinct identities, Russia is a fascinating patchwork of cultures and languages which can provide something for everyone to enjoy. A huge variety of industries are drawing expatriates, from the huge energy sector to finance, aerospace, and mining. Whatever your field of interest, you're sure to enjoy some of the excellent food and drink on offer, and when you're settled down, realize how friendly and welcoming Russians can be. With help from our members, you can make sure you avoid any potential problems and enjoy your experience in Russia to the maximum potential.
