MOSCOW CITY GUIDE

I have lived in Moscow for a little more than one year and I work for Louis Vuitton. I think Moscow is known for red square and the Moscow Kremlin. I am in love with the city hope you fall in love as well.

Best Time To Visit

December and January because you learn about Russian winters. A lot of snow, Ice Rink on Red Square, Ice Slides at the parks. You will enjoy playing with snowballs and making snowmen. Winter is the favorite season for people who live in Russia.

Places I Like

Bolshoi Theatre

Moscow International Business Centre

Red square

It’s stunning! Very beautiful historical place with museums, shops, restaurants.

Cathedral of St. Basil

Just like the Red Square, St. Basil’s is another must see. And since its located on the Red square, you’ll kill two birds with one stone.

The Kremlin

The Armoury is an absolute must, but also make sure to wander the Kremlin grounds. It requires an extra ticket for sale at the same ticket office (350 rb)

Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure

Nice place for an evening walk and the view of the fortress beyond the lake

Old Arbat Street

Old Arbat Street is completely pedestrian, which means it’s great for people watching.

Ways To Travel Around

If you are tired of walking in Moscow, you can take the metro. The Moscow metro is the most beautiful and looks like a Museum.

In Moscow I love to walk on foot. In the center there are many beautiful boutiques, restaurants and streets. On foot you can see wonderful places. I’m very like this city – the city that never sleeps.

Winters are gorgeous but make sure you dress warmly and have enough layers on.
