Aminamina is on the money...just got back about a month ago and everything...I mean everything was hyperinflated. But one will still be shock to see the number Birkins and Kellys (mostly black or etoupe) in the fancy restaurants. Russians love to flaunt their riches...ostentation display of wealth is an understatement. We did stop to price things out at the Hermes store at GUM (which was quite big)...scarves (90 by 90)were about 125-135 USD more than New York price...just to give you an idea. Still a great place to visit and enjoy the sights...hope you friend enjoys Russia as much as we did!
