Sending Mail in Russia
Russia has plenty of mailboxes and post
offices, but they're only useful for letters that don't need to arrive within a month and
wouldn't be missed if they never arrived. If you need to send anything else, you're better
off using an international or national delivery service.
Receiving Mail in Russia
You can receive mail slowly and somewhat unreliably at the post office inside the Central
Telegraph office on Tverskaya Ul. Use the following address:
(YOUR NAME in Capitals)
The following companies offer quicker and more
reliable incoming mail services:
10 Ul. Zorge
IPS, Independent Postal Service
Brestskaya 2-aya ul., 43
Fax / Telephone: 250-4272
Fax / Telephone: 251-74-87
Sending Mail from Russia
For important letters it's best to use a
private express mail service. If you're just sending postcards, they'll probably make it
if you drop them off at a large post office. Mailboxes on the street are less reliable.
