    Friendly Neighborhood in Moscow

    Wanna rent an apartment for a year or so for an Indian couple.
    1. Are there any university towns like USA in Russia where people are more open to foreigners?
    2. Something near a library or a university will be nice.
    3. Rent range is ~ $500/month.

    You won't get much for $500 a month! We have lived in Akademicheskaya for many years and is a very nice neighbourhood .

    As everywhere in Moscow, expensive or very expensive. The option is un-f@$#ing-believable expensive. Browse www.cian.ru .
    There's nothing that I have been told by him that would lead me to believe that anything is different than when it was prior ©

    Found quite few nice apartments under the budget near metro line. But most are for Slavs only. http://www.cian.ru/rent/flat/150305703/

    Which areas has diverse population and safe for decent rent paying tenants?

    if you think like that you might as well stay where you are and not come here. Russians are SLAV people and if you do not like it or accept that as your neighbors, go to ROSINKA the american compound where you are all nicely and safely walled in. be amongst yourselves, with foreigners only. but for 500 $$$ you can rent there the dog house. that is all you will get there.

    $500/month is what I pay, so in total, my flatmate and I pay $1000/month. I'm not sure if one bedroom apartments are cheaper, but in general, you're not going to find prices that low in Moscow. Maybe Moscow region would have something cheaper, but that opens up a whole different discussion about commuting.
