Russian Rouble

14 Jun 2012 Morgan asked


Hi All,

Just trying to figure out what to do for the currency. Is it better to convert euros or GBP or USD? Has anyone done this tour before or have any idea what is the best option for spending 8 days in Russia.

    I just went to Russia. All the optionals are paid in euros so you’ll need them. Most people changed a few euros to roubles in Helsinki and then changed more/ took money out at exchanges in St Petersburgh. I think you get a better exchange rate in Russia.
