About Russia

Russia is a country with rich cultural and scientific traditions, historical heritage famous for its museums and magnificent architecture. It is the only country in the world which is the place of West and East connection and harmonious confluence of two different worlds. Russia is fertile land for scientific discussions of scientists from all over the world.
The capital of Russia is Moscow, the country’s largest city, its major political, industrial and cultural center. First tribes appeared on the territory of the future Moscow in the Neolithic epoch. The reference to a Moscow, as to a town, is found in the old manuscript of 1147.  Today Moscow is one of the world biggest megapolises and the biggest city in Europe. Its population is about 15 million people.
The second largest Russian megapolis with almost 5 million people inhabitants, St Petersburg is really a unique place to visit. The city was founded in 1703 by Peter the Great, Russia's first and the most famous Emperor. For more than 200 years, St. Petersburg was the capital of Russia and the main residence of 13 Russian Emperors.
The participants of the conference will have a chance to visit two capitals of Russia: Moscow (during Conference) and St. Petersburg (during post-conference tour), to enjoy the beauty of their magnificent historical monuments.

Currency
The currency of Russia is ruble. To see the rate of exchange you may visit http://www.xe.com/ucc.
By law, you can only use rubles to pay for goods and services in Moscow and other towns in Russia. There are many currency exchange offices in the center of the city, though you should pay attention to the fixed commission being charged and consider the special rates offered for the exchange of large sums. As a rule, the worst rates are available at large banks and Sberbank in particular. Do not exchange money with private individuals – you may get ripped off in the process of exchanging the money in the street. In addition, the exchange will be illegal.

Try to have the right change when traveling in route taxis as drivers often refuse to accept 500 ruble and 1,000 ruble bank notes as they have no way of checking their authenticity.

Banking facilities

Cash machines accepting the main credit and debit cards – Visa, Master Card, Maestro, American Express – are fairly common and can be found at shopping centers and large shops, hotels and metro stations. 

Shopping
