Rental apartments in Moscow can make Manhattan's prices look cheap, with unfurnished luxury two-bedrooms averaging $4,600 a month. And the imported goods and services that expats commonly want also command a premium. A gallon of milk costs an average of $7.59. Even a cup of coffee -- averaging more than $8 -- doesn't come cheap.

It looks at the cost in U.S. dollars of over 200 everyday items, such as monthly rent for a luxury, 2-bedroom unfurnished apartment, a movie ticket for an international release, a fast-food hamburger meal, and more. All cities are compared to New York City and currency movements are based against the U.S. dollar.
