A must-have for travelers and armchair travelers, “Russia Survival Guide” discusses all pertinent topics – from the country’s architecture to the traffic – in a chatty and thoroughly enjoyable manner.

As an expat living in Russia since 2005, Maya Krivchenia knows the different things that make this country remarkable. In December 2013, she and co-author Alexander Rodionov, founder and director of Russia’s leading Destination Management Company, published a compelling handbook designed especially for those who want to know more about Russia and make the most out of their travels there. “Russia Survival Guide” has arrived just in time for the upcoming Winter Olympics which will be held in the Russian city of Sochi.

“Russia Survival Guide” is different from other travel guides out there in that it is conversational in tone and is written by two people who live in and have fallen in love with Russia. It is a treasure trove of historical and cultural facts and figures which are made more immersive by the authors’ personal stories. It is also a great reference guide for anyone planning to travel to Russia, providing answers to questions regarding the visa process, what to expect upon arriving, the modes of transportation and what cultural spots to visit, to name a few.

“Russia is an exciting, interesting, and dynamic country, but sometimes the differences that people come across are extremely frustrating and confusing,” says Krivchenia, “Our goal is to explain some of Russia’s unique qualities so that our friends, clients, tourists, and all others can appreciate this amazing country.”

A must-have for travelers and armchair travelers, “Russia Survival Guide” discusses all pertinent topics – from the country’s architecture to the traffic – in a chatty and thoroughly enjoyable manner.
