Oh…average European or American imagination about Russia is that you come to frozen-frozen, very frozen country. Walk to the Red Square and see people all around you in ushankas (national ugly head from 18th century) and running bears with vodka right behind you…
So it’s absolutely true! …Kidding of course it’s not.
Modern Moscow is much safer than Washington (USA), Chicago, Rome (Italy), Paris (France) and even London (UK) according to Crime index statistics in 2019 (https://www.numbeo.com/crime/rankings.jsp). And much safer than Barcelona (Spain), where every 3d person ready to sell you marijuana or thinking how to thief your last money.
Of course it’s not better to walking alone in far districts from center, not to leave your cell phone on bar counter while going to the toilet. Keep your common sense and everything will be okay.
Anyway we recommend you to keep your documents with yourself for any case as police may ask you and check it’s availability.
We will be happy to personally welcome you on our excursions and show how safe Moscow is:)
From Russia with love,
