The Moscow Times is a city newspaper catering specifically to expats and foreigners residing or traveling in Russia. In light of the Fifa World Cup 2019, I was asked to write simple but helpful city guides for those visiting the country.

I researched the basic information about the cities, transportation options, medical facilities, and shopping areas. There were 5 guides in total: Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Kazan, and Sochi – filled with essential survival tips so needed by foreigners visiting Russia.
