Russia is largely a safe city for tourists. Much of the country relies on tourism to bolster the economy, and local governments take great pains to ensure safety for foreign citizens. Crimes against locals and foreigners drastically reduced over the last decade. That’s not to say certain minorities shouldn’t take precaution, but the chance of getting accosted walking down the streets is pretty slim.

Moscow

The mega metropolis and capital city of Russia is famously opulent and expensive. A large police presence in the city makes for a safe place to explore. While they can be strict about visas here, you’re generally safe as long as you have your papers on hand.

 

St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg is often regarded as Russia’s most progressive city, thus making it a great choice for anyone worried about the current political climate. The city boasts more than 2,000 libraries, a bohemian atmosphere and friendlier-than-average locals. As one of the most-visited cities in Russia, pickpockets do pose a risk. As long as you’re aware of your surroundings you should have no problems.

 

Sochi

Sochi, site of the 2014 Olympics, is Russia’s largest resort destination and arguably the safest city in the country. The picturesque seaside retreat brings in millions of tourists each year and boasts luxurious accommodations and countless attractions. Like any popular tourist destination, there’s a slight risk of pickpocketing and muggings, but if you stick to populated areas and don’t wander down back alleys at night you’ll be fine.
