A majestic city, Moscow has something to do and see around every corner of the city.
You can’t go to Moscow without seeing Red Square, the Kremlin, and St. Basil’s Cathedral -- all located in the heart of the city. Head to the ballet at Bolshoi Theater, or watch a performance in the same hall where Tchaikovsky once performed some of his iconic pieces. Other top sites include Lenin’s Mausoleum, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, and The Visit the chaotic Kitay-Gorod neighborhood in the center for the nightlife, or if you want the trendiest cafes and restaurants, head to Zamoskvorechye or Khamovniki. Find all the cool architecture and good food in Patriarch Ponds.
Russians tend to be very honest, even brutally so, and are friendliest to those who speak some Russian, as many don’t speak much English. They also tend not to smile when greeting people, but don’t take that personally.
The best time to visit Moscow is late spring to avoid the frigid winters.
