Moscow, Russia, a vast metropolis of more than 17 million people. Russia – a fast developing economy, but still relying heavily on expat expertise. So the result is an estimated 150,000 expats living and working in Moscow.

Moscow expat Life was created to provide the entire expat community in Moscow with a high quality and informative magazine addressing all aspects of living and working in this great city.

Moscow expat Life is printed quarterly and is carefully distributed to ensure excellent coverage amongst the cross-cultural expat communities in the city. We report on the diverse and dynamic activities and cover business, social and charitable events. We produce articles which are both interesting and informative both for people that live here and for people who are thinking of making the move to Moscow. Moscow expat Life has become an important source of useful information for the entire community.

Moscow expat Life has become integrated with most business and social clubs in Moscow reporting on developments amongst our community. Moscow expat Life also created the highly successful Moscow Good Food Club providing lovers of food and wine the opportunity to enjoy wonderful evenings of high quality in Moscow’s better restaurants.
