Russian Street and Directions

When you know Russian street words, it will be easier to navigate around the city and ask for directions in case you get lost. The easiest way to find your way around is to ask Где...? (Where's...) and possibly follow with Покажите, пожалуйста, на карте. (Please, show me on the map.) Don't forget to check out the Russian picture dictionary to learn Russian words on other topics. Also, you may find more practical information in the Russian culture section.
