Moving to Zug this summer

Hello English forum,

my name is Elena, i'm moving to Zug (area) this summer together with my family - husband and two daughters.
we're russians, but have lived in Europe for some time.

Many thanks to forum members for all the useful information i found here.
I am a bit anxious about our relocation, but hopefully it will be OK.

It's true, you won't be alone. You will meet many Russians here.
Good luck with your relocation.

Hi Elena,
Welcome to Switzerland and Zug!!

Baar is definitely a great place to live. Others will argue, but
I find Baar the best.

Re: Moving to Zug this summer

Thank you guys!

I'm reading the forum, gathering information, contacted the Helpdesk for foreigners.

cdcdoc, thank you for your welcome.

Faustisis, i actually could speak German some time ago, and i'm willing to learn, yes!

The_Love_Doctor, Russians usually try to avoid each other outside of Russia.
I'm kidding, i'm kidding

IzabelaInZug, hello! Hopefully you will not be overbooked in summer, as I would like to make an appointment for massage too. I've seen all the positive feedback people left for you

HollidayG, my husband is going soon to Switzerland and will look for an apartment, so i will tell him. I've heard (i mean - read on this forum) that Baar is a nice place. Thanks for the tip.

So far people are very nice, i contacted department of education and helpdesk for foreigners. I apologized that i can't speak German, and everybody was very friendly and helpful.
