Hello to all of you! [newcomer from Estonia, russian speaker]

Hi all!

So I've just moved to Zurich from Tallinn, Estonia. My native language is Russian though, but I also speak some quite good Estonian.

Came to work in IT field. This was a bit crazy step for me, since I don't know a single soul here. So I guess it's all about if I'm gonna make some new friends in this country. Otherwise it seems like a very nice place to live (good salaries hehe )

I'm staying at a temporary serviced apartment, which I got for a mad price So I got to find something more reasonable fast. Starting to get the taste of the flat hunting mayhem here When I came to see a flat and a whole line of people was already standing there )

And I'm really looking forward to exploring this country and the rest of the Europe, which should be quite easily reachable from here. It just would be cool to have some partner on this with me

OK so thanks a lot for this very useful resource, I spent a couple of days just reading threads here Tons of useful info. Hoping to make some contributions
Will be seeing you

Hi andreik,
welcome to Switzerland and the Forum.
Yes, a huge step to make, but by the sound of it, you are on the right road to having a great time here.
Hope you find yourself a suitable apartment soon and likewise, hook up with some friendly souls to explore the place with.
All the best,

Ros

Welcome to the Forum.
An ongoing problem with the housing situation here - in spite of each town having its own selection of cranes, showing that houses and appartment blocks are in the making, the population seems to be increasing faster than the building is going. Good luck on your hunt.
