Safety recommendations for Travel to Russia. ⛔ Dangerous and safe areas for sightseeing or living in Russia ✅ Travel requirements and restrictions. ⚠️ Is it dangerous or safe to travel to Russia [Current information].
There are risks in terms of citizen safety in Russia, as in all countries. Robberies and scams occur, the target of which are foreigners. Therefore, it is recommended to pay attention to personal belongings in crowded places, avoid using unlicensed cabs and exercise extreme caution on night trains. Travel in the very outlying districts of large cities outside normal hours should also be avoided.
It is recommended to avoid any travel, unless necessary, to the North Caucasus Federal District (Dagestan, Ingushetia, Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachayevo-Cherkessia, North Ossetia and Chechnya). This region remains unstable and potentially dangerous.
On the other hand, there are restrictions on travelers’ access to certain areas or cities due to their location or economic function. The list of areas with restricted or limited access may vary, as may the criteria applicable in each case. Travelers should inquire in a timely manner about the specific requirements of their destination at the time of visa application or with the authorities themselves once in Russia.

The richness of its history, which has been shaped over the centuries by Mongols, Vikings, czars, Bolsheviks and communists, a cultural and intellectual heritage as rich as its surface and breathtaking landscapes are just some of the trump cards with which Russia plays to seduce travelers.
The experience of touring a country that stretches the length and breadth of two continents is the perfect opportunity to live an unforgettable experience. However, as we have already mentioned, Russia is not free of risks, many of them a direct consequence of its peculiarities. Issues such as security or health care can be a problem if you travel without having taken out appropriate travel insurance for a destination that will require a significant budget. While it is true that your vacation investment will be protected by cancellation insurance, Russian regulations require that your policy must have extraordinary guarantees, so you should at least take out travel insurance with basic medical coverage.
