It’s only natural for first-time visitors to a place not to know how things work there. It seems that when it comes to visiting Russia, there are quite a few things to keep in mind.
Visiting Russia? Look Out For These Things

DO dress up for a night out
Muscovites’ “face control” is notoriously strict, so you’d better make extra effort to look great when you hit the clubs, posh restaurants, and theaters in the Russian capital. For women, high heels and nice dresses are a must, while a total black look usually works fine for men.
