Your Destination —
You’re perfectly located to discover all Moscow has to give: explore an enigmatic city with a rich history and vibrant culture.
Politics, science, history, architecture, and business all meet here in this Russian capital, bursting with life. In this fascinating city, the ancient and the modern exist side by side.
In addition to the famous sites of the Red Square, the Kremlin, and the imposing nine domes of St. Basil's Cathedral, Moscow boasts an emerging art and music scene, and plenty of galleries and cafes, full of Moscow's cultured crowd.
The dining scene is equally vivacious, with everything from elegant haute cuisine to family friendly establishments.
Christmas in Moscow
The celebrations start in late November, when advent begins for the Russian Orthodox Church, and continue through to January 7th – when Christmas is most commonly celebrated in Russia, in keeping with the Julian calendar. This means there’s plenty of time for holiday spirit to build throughout the city, where there are plenty of festivities to keep you celebrating throughout your stay. We also recommend a stop to Manezh Square, where the largest Christmas bauble in the world and a 17m high Christmas tree lure visitors each year.
The Christmas market on the Red Square is unmissable. The crisp winter air is made warm with the scents of Russian delicacies: crepes with caviar, pickles, Russian gingerbread and mulled wine. The painted faces of the blushing babushka dolls line the stalls alongside other handicrafts, such as Orenburg shawls and Khohloma toys. There’s even an ice rink open in the square – why not skate with a loved one at night under the bright, decorated Christmas lights?

The Moscow Metro is generally acknowledged to be the most beautiful public underground transport system in the world. It is a real subterranean city with palaces decorated with marble, bronze, granite and gilt, as well as having modern stations.
The first line of Moscow metro, with 13 stations, was opened in 1935. Now, there are more than 150 stations and Moscow metro is the main means of municipal transport in the city. Old stations were built according to Stalin’s plan of communist propaganda. Planners pretended to prove the superiority of communism by fantastic amazing design and decorations of marble, bronze statues and mosaics. Some stations look like real underground palaces. During the tour you visit such stations as «Mayakovskaya», «Komsomolskaya», «Ploschad Revolutsii».
