Russia: Tips, Tricks & Travel - water issues

In this episode of our new series “Russia: Tips, Tricks & Travel” we’ll see if you can drink from the tap and find out what to do when your hot water is turned off in summer.

Travelers are often told “not to drink the tap water” in exotic locations, but does this rule apply in the land of snow and bears? How reliable is the hot water in Russia?

Tim will answer all of these questions in this episode of Russia: Tips, Tricks & Travel.
