Must-sees in Russia

  • Saint Petersburg
  • If it’s palatial architecture you’re after, Saint Petersburg is the place to be. From art and culture at the Hermitage Museum, to the 19th century Church of the Savior on Blood. The Winter Palace is a great example of the type of buildings former Russian Emperors called home.
  • Moscow
  • Russia’s largest city and the official seat of government known as The Kremlin, photo opportunities abound, due to some of the city’s magnificent architecture, such as St. Basil’s Cathedral, Red Square and the Moscow Metro, which is a national monument in its own right.
  • Siberia
  • The largest and deepest freshwater lake in the world, Siberia’s Lake Baikal has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996. With an abundance of unique flora and fauna, the region is popular for hiking and wildlife overserving.

A deeper look at the Russian rub

The ruble fell on tough times recently with thanks to the 2014-2016 Russian financial crisis and the economic sanctions placed on the country due to recent territorial disputes. However more recently, the ruble has proven a robust investment choice for emerging markets, due to the country’s high interest rates and struggling economies proving a worth competitor.

The rate could be better

The rate could be better, but most exchanges in Australia don’t have that good rates. It was nice to be able to pick it up at an Australia Post.

I have no hesitation in recommending …

I have no hesitation in recommending Travelex when buying foreign currency online. Pick up points from Australia Post and or Travelex offices/agencies make it convenient for most people. I strongly recommend that you make purchases online as I have found from past experience that the rates are better than direct with Travelex shop front agencies.
