Confident, cash-rich and civilised, Moscow is the city that's come in from the cold, and then some. Nowadays, there are an estimated 40 billionaires in Moscow, all enjoying the strong ruble, whilst being driven forwards by sky-high oil prices in a city with a real attraction for investment banks. Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs now compete with the natives, Renaissance Capital and Troika Dialog.

Sheremetyevo International Airport is Soviet and quite dreary, it is located 20 miles northwest of central Moscow 2. You could take the express train into town. Or you could try one of the 'fixed price' taxis from the stand in the arrivals hall. Be warned that the 'fixed price' can be rather flexible...

When considering business etiquette in Russia bear in mind that many Russians assume that Westerners know next to nothing about Russia; so a few key phrases and some historical/cultural knowledge will go down very well. Dress smartly and remember that business wise it is usually quiet in Moscow in the summer -- however this does not mean that the traffic will be much lighter.
