Sometimes, there a power and water cuts. Sometimes for hours. And houses are poorly insulated which means you have lots of costs for heating but when it's really cold outside, you will feel it on the inside. Street asphalt or cobble stone is very slippery when rainy or snowy. They don't clean the snow like you are used to Western Europe. Better leave your car home and walk (if you have good shoes). Pollution is a big concern. - Nov 2016


My disappointment and regret in coming here is tempered by my age, travel experience (15 years as an expat), and my attempt to try to like the city and its people... all to no avail. You can judge a place by how it treats its poor and disenfranchised, its animals, and how it takes care of its environment with regard to making the city a cleaner, brighter place to live. But, sadly, I can only say they are in sore need of re-education in all these ares. - Jun 2016
