Guide to Living and Traveling in St. Petersburg, Russia
I live in a modern big shared flat (student apartment) with 8 rooms and 3 bathrooms and I pay $350/month. My place is right in the heart of the city as I got tired of looking for studios further away. I spent one week searching and living with Russian students which helps too. It's quite private and I have a big room.
Draft beer: $2-2.50
Glass of wine: $3-$3.50
Shot of vodka: $1.50
Alcohol is very cheap in stores (specially the local stuff like vodka).
