The city features a perfect system of cashless transfers. International credit cards are accepted in all scale shopping centers and restaurants. Cash will be in use only at the open markets and shops located far from the city center.
Currency should be exchanged in banks or private currency exchange offices. A transaction fee should be specified in advance. One should avoid currency exchange service offered by individuals no matter how profitable the exchange rates may seem.
The city is convenient to cruise by underground as it helps the visitors to easily reach any part of the city. The electric train network joins the city and its suburbs. The trains depart from railway stations in short intervals several times per hour. All the means of public transportation are available in the city. However during the day the traffic on the roads is rather challenging.
Car rent is reasonable only for those tourists looking to visiting suburban areas of the city rather frequently. The city roads are relatively free only during early morning hours or late at night.
The most expensive boutiques, eating houses and hotels are located in the city center. The more distant a hotel or a restaurant from the city center is, the more attractive pricing it will offer. Prudent tourists are advised to choose a hotel in the suburban areas of the Moscow city as in this case the cost of check in will be much lower. Suburban areas are also a perfect destination to buy some foods as this way of saving cost is in practice not only among travelers and city guests but among local folks as well.
