English Currency?

Having brought some English pounds with me on my trip, I thought it would be easy to exchange them in the city.

I have been in at least 10 banks and they do not offer a facility to exchange pounds at all. Even a call to the bank telephone line could not tell me if any bank in Yekaterinburg could change my pounds.

If you are planning on travelling with cash it seems only dollars or euros would be useful.

Sberbank happily buys all major currencies, and you surely can find one nearby... Pounds are surely not the currency of first choice, sorry.

Just checked Gazprombank buys pounds, and has several offices at Yekaterinburg. Hope this helps.
