View Full Version : changing money - unusual currencies

12-11-2012, 11:36
Can someone recommend a good bank in the centre for changing unusual currencies - for example the Israeli shekel.

I think there are a few banks on Old Arbat street, no?
Would this be the best place for someone that does not know Moscow at all?

While at change booths you really need US Dollars or Euros, is it the case that in banks any currency will be fine?

I don't know any bank, but there is an exchange office where they have 49 currencies on offer. The place is called Obmen 49 valiut (Сеть обменных пунктов "49 Валют"). The address is: ул. Пушечная д.3(в арке) тел.(495) 621-82-93 (street Pushechnaya, No3 (under the arch)) and Ленинский пр-т, д.62/1 тел. (499) 137-7676 (Leninskyi avenue, No62/1).
The exchange office on Pushechnaya is open from 10:00 to 19:30 on weekdays, and from 10:00 to 17:30 on saturdays. The one on Leninskyi avenue is open from 9:00 to 19:00 on weekdays and from 10:00 to 18:00 on saturdays.
