Does anyone know whether Russia uses the same plugs as Continental Europe?

I am going on a Russian river cruise. I know the ship is Russian, so I assume it has the same electrical outlets as they do ashore in Russia. Don't know whether the standard Continental European plugs are used in Russia or not.

    The standard socket type in Russian Federation is TYPE F, which is used in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Portugal, Spain and most East European countries. Some Soviet-era sockets still feature narrow, outdated TYPE-C pins, but it's rather hard to find those nowadays - so rest assured, you're safe :)

  • Yes, Russia uses the same plugs as Continental Europe. Ukraine also uses the same plugs.
