How to say in Russian "Where is ..?"

Introduction
how to say in russian where is
People in Russia are open and hospitable. And in most cases you will get answers on questions, directions, explanations and other help. But there is a small problem - you do not know the Russian language, and not all Russians understand at least the English. What to do?

To get advice it is really better to ask young guys and girls. More chances, that some know English and can help. But it is even better to learn a few phrases and expressions in Russian. It's much easier than it seems!

Take the first step! You will find that someone will probably meet you half way!
