Which currency should I take to St. Petersburg ?

Hi,

Planning 5 days in St. Petersburg.

Which currency should I take to St. Petersburg ?

Are there readily available ATMs to withdraw local currency ?

Thanks.

The currency exchange places all take US Dollar and Euros. But note, make sure the money you bring are in great condition, i.e. no tear, no cut-corners, no stamp chops on it etc. We just returned last week, and our friend's notes are all rejected due to a small chop on their bills. And we brought only $100 bills, as we have heard they may not take smaller bills. Side note, consider bringing your passport when exchanging money, we managed to get 1 exchange with the copy, plus a genuine ID card, but that's after 10min of struggle with the bank staff's broken English, and she's not happy.
