Knowing what you know now, would you still move to this city?

Yes, but I would have brought proper air masks with me and been better prepared. - Sep 2019


Absolutely! It's the one posting I've had where I think I could live happily forever! - May 2018


Yes. - Apr 2018


For sure! - Dec 2016


I think it is a good post, on the whole. I did not know how hard the winter and the pollution would be for me personally, and if I had, I might not have come. We are leaving after two years, and that will definitely be enough for me. However, I would say that if you are OK with a really LONG DARK winter and do not have a history of respiratory issues, it can be a very good post. I know many people who love it. - Mar 2016

Sure; I can deal with the problems easily. If you are doing it for the first time, just dont take things personally. And be very alert in whatever you are doing in public. - Aug 2011


Definitely. I love it here. - Mar 2011


No - Jan 2011


in a heartbeat. Only sorry we will one day leave. - Dec 2010


Absolutely! - Feb 2010


Absolutely. People come back here again and again. - Aug 2009


We would go there, but we would take a long break from the winter. Just when you think it might be spring, the temperature drops again. - Jun 2008


Provided I don't have to go through FSI language training again, I would say yes. While I haven't been here long, this has been the smoothest past couple of months I have had at a post. - Apr 2008


Yes. - Feb 2008
