Communication by Letter
Sending your letters to Russia by regular postal mail gives you unique opportunities to be more personal and creative as compared to sending your messages via email. You can create romantic opportunities for surprise and excitement when you send your lady something in the mail especially if you are using other methods of correspondence. Imagine her delight to receive an unexpected letter, greeting card or pictures from you in her mail. Think of the Russian postal carrier as your personal messenger to tell your lady that you are thinking of her and that she is special to you.
Postal mail to most Russian cities can be slow and sometimes unreliable. Letters can take one to three weeks to reach their final destination. Letters with a final destination of Moscow or St. Petersburg typically take 7-10 days where more remote cities will take longer, up to 3 weeks. A reply from Russia can take just as long so it may be awhile before you know if your first letter was received and appealing or not.
If you only have a postal address to write to there are mail forwarding services that can expedite the delivery at a reasonable cost.
