Even the most experienced business travelers can get themselves into situations where they need some help from their embassy. So when you’re traveling it’s a good idea to know where the US Embassy is – just in case. It’s information you hope you don’t need to use, but if you do need it you’ll be happy to have it handy.
In particular, when you’re traveling to places where the local language is more than just a different arrangement of familiar letters but instead is an entirely different alphabet, knowing where you can go for assistance in your native tongue is especially comforting. And in Russia, unless you can read cyrillic, you’ll probably be a bit out of your comfort zone.
Here is the information you’ll need to find the US Embassy in Moscow, Russia.
