Know your footwear fundamentals in Russia

Posted by Fodor's Editors on July 1, 2011 at 1:00:00 AM EDT | Post a Comment

Shoes are particularly important in Russia and must be kept clean, even when the weather conditions make this difficult. In some museums, galleries, and palaces, such as the Tretyakov Gallery, you may be asked to put on plastic booties similar to the kind surgeons wear over your shoes before entering the gallery. When entering a Russian home, always remove your shoes at the entryway. See our Russia coverage.
