You have to register if you're staying for longer than 7 days during the first 7 days. The hotels and hostels and B&Bs should usually do it for you. Or the landlord of the apartment where you're staying.

Each new city you have to register again but only if you stay there longer than 7 days – but the authorities can only know how long you stayed from your own words.
