Hello Peeps,
I have a question or two about Moscow. Is it possible to buy at the subway a subwayticket with cash at a window (counter)? In staed of using a machine for that?
And, When I arrive from Brussels at SVO, where exactly do i find the space where i can pick up my bags? Is this room for lugage pick-up located in a space you enter before that you pass the customs, or is the luggage pick-up located in a place you enter AFTER you pass customs?

Yes, it's possible to buy tickets at a counter window instead of the machine although this proved difficult for me as I don't speak Russian. There appeared to be counters at every station.

I flew into SVO but had hand-luggage only; from what I remember seeing though, the baggage collection area was immediately after immigration. Customs is after you've collected your baggage.
