Preparing your trip to Ekaterinburg: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

1. Tourists should not forget to monitor their belongings closely in crowded places. Do not leave your coats and bags unattended. Scammers and thieves can work in stations, markets and other public places.
2. Currency is better to be exchanged at banks that can be found in each district of the city. The exchange rate in private areas can be less profitable. In no case should travellers use the services of individuals, no matter how favorable the exchanging rate seems to be.
3. Travelers who want to stay in a private apartment during their stay in the city are recommended to use the services of special agencies that offer apartments for rental. An apartment rented from a private party may be in poor condition, and search for a new place to live will take a lot of time and effort.
4. The city is distinguished by a well-developed public transport system. Visitors can reach simply every area of the city by bus or subway. Travelers who decide to take a taxi are recommended to book a car over the phone. In this case, the rate will be most beneficial.
5. When going out, do not take large sums of money and other valuable items without any particular need. Many large department stores and restaurants accept payments by bank transfer. Visitors should also not forget to take a copy of an identity document and a map with them. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. Motorists need to follow traffic rules carefully. Pedestrians who break the traffic rules can also be fined, so do not forget to cross roads only where it is permitted or use underground passages. During the daytime there are always big traffic jams on the main streets of the city, so if you have an important meeting it’s better to go out beforehand.
7. In spite of the fact that one can find various dining facilities right at every step in the city, experienced tourists recommend visiting to well-established and trustworthy restaurants and cafes only. Dishes that are offered to customers in numerous kiosks and food stalls of the city are not always of high quality.
Guests of Yekaterinburg can successfully combine sightseeing with visits to various entertainment facilities. Every evening visitors are welcome to attend numerous night clubs, casinos and … Open
8. Budget travelers are recommended to go to open air markets in order to shop souvenirs. Quite often sellers in such markets have the same products that are offered in shopping malls, but at much more attractive prices. However, expensive items are better to be bought in stores because in markets it’s easy to buy a poor quality fake.
