    It's true. But usually it's one or two days before it starts, and often some hooligan will tear down the notice.

    Better to know several weeks in advance, in case you want to plan your vacation around it.

    Thanks for the hint about scrolling down, because the one where you type in your address just has not been working at all.

    For god's sake, people, even if you rent your place, talk to the landlord, spend 250 USD and a get a water heater. Or quit whining like the little spoiled girls!

    16-25 June.
    seems to be an improvement on the site, just had to write in the street name and after 4 letters he found the rest...(Russian language of course). so i did not even go down to the -alternative variant- where you type district,street and building....
    But as i wrote, years ago we bought a little Stiebel Eltron water heater,size of a shoebox,and gives enough,instant hot water for ALL our needs in sufficient quality.
    a note of caution though: if you live in an older building, let only QUALIFIED (the electrics of the local housing estate. NO PRIVATE friend, -know all-, -master of all hands-, if something goes wrong, you pay and can be costly indeed) people do the wiring. we had to install an extra line directly into the distribution box out on the corridor. our building was constructed during the 70's and the lines are not strong enough to take on that load of electricity,special when also the washing machine and the oven are on at the same time.
    and the little heater comes in handy also during the year, it did happen that a pipe burst they were digging and had to switch off the water....
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....

    From the other hand summer hot water shut-off is good way to practice cold-water showering)))

    Us(not all of us ) expats like to bitch and whine about things in Russia, and the yearly hot water cut off is one of the last things we have to complain about..
