    What's so special about being an Au Pair in Russia?
    We believe staying in a family and working in it as an Au Pair is a wonderful opportunity for many to be able to experience the country from inside. It is certainly something new and different to discover it.

    A few tips that might be helpful in planning your future Au Pairing:

    • Russia is much cheaper than other European countries
    • Russia certainly is much safer, than it is often thought: In many of the cities one can safely walk late at night or early in the morning in the down town area
    • people in Russia are generally shy, but really hospitable and kind
