Shopping

International students often wonder where they can buy food, clothes, footwear, household items, and where the good stores are.
The 2GIS reference system can help you answer most of these questions. The 2GIS app can be downloaded for free onto any mobile device (2GIS for mobile devices) and onto any computer. You can also visit the website at www.2gis.ru and get your information online without downloading the app.
The Pribyvalka app for your smart phone is also available for those who want to know when the next bus or any other public transport is scheduled to arrive at the station where you are waiting. Here’s a little secret: this app was created by SSAU students who wanted to make it easier for Samara residents to move around the city.
