Currency

The Russian monetary unit is the rouble. There is no limit to the amount of foreign currency allowed to be brought into Russia. However, all money brought into the country (including traveller’s checks) must be declared upon entering the country.

Tourists can exchange any amount of hard currency for roubles at any authorized Russian banks, Intourist exchange offices, foreign currency offices or ATM located in major hotels, shopping malls, international airports and sea ports. Exchange rates between the rouble and hard currencies are set by authorized Russian banks within Russia and by authorized banks within each of the independent republics. All major credit cards including American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard/Mastercard, Visa International and others are accepted for payment in shops, restaurants and banks in Moscow, Saint-Petersbourg, Kazan and other big tourist centers
