mail.jpg (9706 bytes)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:

RUSSIA 103009
Do Vostrebovania
Moscow K-9
(YOUR NAME in Capitals)

The following companies offer quicker and more reliable incoming mail services:

10 Ul. Zorge
Tel: 956-2230
Fax: 956-2231

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.
