Overall impression

Proximity to the sea: Depending on where you live, it’s from a five-minute walk to thirty minutes by car.

Attitude to foreigners

I’ve got no reasons for complaints.

Impression of local population

Cheerful, friendly, sociable.


It’s not really hot, but it’s still nice. I consider it’s better than in Moscow. In summer it’s around 20-22 degrees, in winter – 5-10 degrees below zero. Autumn may be quite rainy, but there are no many heavy downpours.


Education is free in state universities even for foreigners. The quality is good.

Quality of medicine (quality and cost)

Fortunately I didn’t have to experience that.

Transport (road access, quality of roads, level of driving, gasoline cost, public transportation)

The roads are good, the drivers too. Public transport is very developed. There are many buses, trains, and the metro is good too. All public transport works on schedule and almost around the clock.
Travelling abroad: Schengen Area.

Prices (cost of living, food, entertainment)

Prices vary – something is cheaper than in CIS countries, something is more expensive. If you know places you may buy food and clothes at low prices. Electronic gadgets are much more expensive than in Russia.

Job (search complexity, level of salary)

It is hard to find a job if you don’t have a direct contract or local residence.

Housing (cost, availability, rent, purchase)

It is very expensive to rent a flat, so it’s cheaper to buy it on credit. Rental fee depends on the flat itself and the district where it is situated. One bedroom flat with furniture on the edge of the city costs around 400-500 euro per month.


I’ve never faced it. Police can be seen once in a year, which is a sign of public peace and order.

Women \ men (for dating)

Women are not as beautiful as eastern Slavs, but are still pretty.

Internet access (availability, price)

100 Mb/s - 40 euro per month.
