Get Tips and Info on Life in Russia from Finnish Expats

Being an expat in Russia means much more than packing your belongings and taking care of paperwork. Keeping in touch with your Finnish compatriots is a big part of the expat experience and can help you understand the Russian people and their culture better. With InterNations, meeting other Finns in Russia is a breeze, no matter if you are in Yekaterinburg, Moscow, Saint Petersburg or any other expat magnet across the country. Just take our network of Finns in Moscow, for example.

If you are in the mood to speak your mother tongue again, to learn about the best spots to shop for Finnish food, or to discuss your favorite sports team’s latest match, join the Finnish InterNations Community:

  • In our huge expat network, you can easily find like-minded expatriates from Finland.
  • Our Russia Expat Forums are a great place to share experiences and advice – for example how to find a nanny speaking your language or where to get poronkäristys in Moscow...
  • The InterNations Places database for Russia helps you find institutions like the nearest Finnish embassy.

From the "Third Rome" to the "Venice in the north", we’ll get you in touch with helpful and friendly Finnish expats in Russia.
