Obtaining and exchanging Russian Rubles and other CIS currencies is not nearly as difficult as even a few years ago. Many small cities and towns now have bank machines plus most banks within the former CIS are adopting better western-style customer service.

 

Currency exchange is possible at most banks plus at currency exchange kiosks in the center of large cities, in hotels, at airports and train stations. Another possible solution is to ask friends or acquaintances if they need to exchange money. Although paying the bank's exchange rate may be insignificant to you, the savings of foregoing the this extra expense may be much appreciated by a local resident.

 

If you need to change traveler's checks simply look for a big respectable looking bank. Many hotels, restaurants and retail stores now take Visa and MasterCard, however American Express is not very popular. There are occasional incidence of credit card fraud throughout Eastern Europe, so you may want to think twice before charging it.
