What to see & do
The capital of Russia, Moscow, is now transforming into its “park life” vibe, with more green spaces and a hip and active culture. Street cafes, bike paths, and outdoor theatres and sports clubs have sprung in the city that reflects the new youthful spirit of Moscow, despite remainders of becoming a Soviet state then.
The Kremlin complex, for instance, is an existing reminder of the Soviet Union as it still towers in the centre of Moscow City. Tourist attraction is centred at the northern bank of Moska River. Thus, the 860-year-old capital Moscow serves as a global icon to the Russian Federation.
Moscow is becoming the next “city that never sleeps”. Unlike the usual glamoured high life, the city’s night experience, however, can be enjoyed by people from all walks of life. Moscow has a club or café suited for everyone’s taste.
Travellers should visit the heart of the city, the Red Square, which is located at the centre of Moscow. Situated at the Red Square are other tourist attractions such as St. Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin’s Mausoleum, the State History Museum, and part of the Kremlin brick walls. Although the cobbles are not coloured red but black, the square was named after the Russian word “krasnaya”, which means “beautiful”, but now means “red”. There is also the Lenin Mausoleum which is meant for the body of Russian politician Vladimir Lenin.
The Kremlin, another tourist attraction that cannot be missed, highlights the diamond collection in the armoury and several churches around the complex. Visitors can also witness ballet performances at the Conference Centre offered in very cheap tickets. Other shows can be watched at the Bolshoi Theatre.
For tourists looking for souvenirs, walk around the Old Arbat Street for unique merchandises and hole-in-the-walls.
Learn about Moscow’s history and heritage by visiting the Tretyakov Gallery, one of the world’s greatest museums, and the Pushkin Museum, that showcases impressionist and post-impressionist collections.
How to get around
Although Central Moscow can be travelled by foot, the easiest way to get to long-distanced places is through the Metro system, which is relatively affordable to passengers. Moscow has three types of tickets for their transportation: the paper tickets, the “TAT” or magnetic stripe for on-ground transportation, and the “Ediny” or a smart card for the Metro.
Another way of getting around is by bus and trolleybuses. Moscow’s wide streets have trolley wires where trolleybuses are plying. The extensive electric tram system could also be another means of travelling around Moscow. Rental cars and taxis are other options in exploring the city.
