Sherlock Restaurant Pub in Voronezh, Russia

I was walking down the streets in downtown Voronezh reading the store signs in Russian and found this one. Hey! I recognize that word! It's the Sherlock Pub.

And here is the decorative facade of the building to fit the theme...

I didn't have time to stop in and try some fish and chips and a pint. But, I am tempted to try during some future visit.

They have a Sherlock PUB Voronezh community on VK.

Maybe some Russian language learners will find the Russian shop signs tag useful.

Learning Russian for iPhone Users - Handwritten Greetings in Messages

Learning Russian for iPhone Users

If you've installed a Russian keyboard on your iPhone, when using Messages you also get this handwritten image option to add common words or phrases in Russian as well as English.

Admittedly, I didn't read any tips about the messages app, so I didn't find this option until I accidentally tipped by phone to the left while using Messages.

Learn Russian through Shop Signs in Saint Petersburg Vlog

When I travel to Russia, and take a bus anywhere, my neck gets sore from trying to read all the signs. By the way, it isn't stupid not to know the word for "shop sign". That isn't a word (watch the video to see) that I have ever seen on an actual shop sign!

I definitely I know how enjoyable it is to travel to a foreign country and do something as simple as read shop signs. It's a great way to see words we know put together in new and interesting combinations. If you can't travel to Russia, perhaps recreate the experience by finding famous Russian stores on the Internet and reading their websites and sales offers.

This is a great channel for Russian language learners of all levels to follow on YouTube. Even though I have been studying Russian for years, have spent many months in Russia, and I still watch everything Angelos Georgakis publishes because I can always find a few new words, or see words in new combinations. Also, he uses subtitles.
