Muscovites do not smile and speak little English but they are helpful and friendly. Such is the perception of majority of foreigners who visit the city. One thing that really stood out for some of the tourists was the fact that some Muscovites actually decided to walk tourists to their destinations to make sure they find it alright.

One woman from Cape Town wrote on social media, “I was traveling alone and still remember and tell everyone at home, how the Russian men helped me carry my suitcase up and down the stairs without any requests for assistance! And, yes, they did it without a smile, in a business sort of a way!”

Moscow is Safe:
