The 1 month visa issued in 5 days costs 40$, issued in one day 80$
(you applied from 9.30 am to 11.00 am and get it ready from 15.00 to 16.00 of the same
day). Take into account that if you don't have the original voucher, as it was in my case,

STUDY SOME RUSSIAN: Russian is by far the most common

about the Cyrillic alphabet will not make your travel impossible, but for sure harder.
CASH: dollars are more accepted than euros, but the latter
are anyway commonly changed.
PHOTOCOPY OF THE PASSPORT: have with you a photocopy of
your passport and in case being stopped for a check while in the towns, show it claiming
the original has been kept by the hotel.
