SO HOW MUCH WOULD A ROUND OF BEERS AND A PIE COST IN SIBERIA?


I don’t know what it is I just have this fascination with Siberia. I mean, it’s not enough to book a ticket there, but just enough to be mildly curious about it for the rest of my natural born life. Come to think of it, in the 80s I was subjected to a healthy diet of "Cold War-laced action movies" which might've had something to do with it. 
So first off, if I was in the land way, way, down under where would I go for PIZZA? To that I’d say (according to Lonely Planet) the best pizza place in Siberia – Mama Roma.  Located somewhere um here…
Thankfully they have a website that has a translator. So let the itemizing begin (based on the fact you're dining with 3 friends.) 
4 pints of Heineken costs 720 rubles (Russian currency) or $25.50

1 Margerita (Tomatoes, Mozzarella) pizza costs 255 rubles or $9.03

Total cost of a night with friends in Siberia? Priceless or $34.53

  1. You forgot the cost to buy all the clothes needed to keep your ass from freezing.

  2. Laughing at oilfield trash! That sounds cheap for pizza. Not sure if that's cheap for beer, is it? And if there are 3 people and 4 pints, who had the extra pint... you?

  7. I'm shocked they have a pizza place. In my mind it is one big concentration camp.

  11. For some reason I'd thought it would be cheaper but it's still reasonable.

  12. The beer is expensive there. I wonder if that's why Vodka is popular?

  13. Siberia? It's cold enough for me in Wisconsin! That's a good deal for a pizza, though.

  15. Don't get the pizza, it sucks. The burgers are okay though.

  16. You know we are all wondering now if it would just be cheaper to get vodka rounds up there. Might make the pizza, which I can only imagine is super high quality, taste that much better.

  18. I'm a Canadian girl, and even I wouldn't want to be visiting Siberia....methinks it would make where I came from feel like Florida.

  19. That sounds like a seriously good deal. Let's go.

  20. I recently watched a movie called The Way Out. Based on a true story it was about 4 men who survived an escape from a Siberian labor camp during the war and WALKED all the way to India...by way of Mongolia and Tibet. Richard Harris and Colin Ferell (sic) were in it. It was really an intense movie. Anyway, Siberia looked nice when the spring finally came.
