    More newbie questions

    How many roubles does it cost for a bottle of Vodka? Are they the 750ml size? Also, how many roubles for a can of Russian caviar? What is the standard size?

    Can I bring these back to the USA?

    I am very excited to make this trip and see some of Russia. My father, grandfather, great grandfather were all born in Russia.

    A bottle of Russian vodka ranges from around 110-400 roubles with 400 being on the expensive side. Imports like absolut, etc will be around the same price as US costs. You can get decent vodkas for 150-200 though. (like 5-7 bucks)

    A bottle of vodka costs from 45-50 rubles. It is a bottle of 0,5 litre. Caviar costs about 130-140 rubles for 100 grammes can.

    You have to declare all food and liquor when going through US customs. I think you are allowed a certain amount duty free but I don't know how much. Two weeks ago when I came through they kept asking me if I had caviar and wouldn't take no for an answer. I finally started yelling that I didn't have any caviar because I HATE caviar and they let me through. I'm kinda surprised they didn't search my bags. I really didn't have any caviar but if you get caught with undeclared goodies it is a huge fine.
    Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.
