Flights to Moscow

The Red Square – home to Lenin’s Mausoleum, the Kremlin and the 16th century St Basil’s Cathedral – draws visitors from all over the world on flights to Moscow, and seems to reverberate with the footsteps of military parades. The centuries-old Russian capital was once the heart of the Soviet Union and evidence of this is everywhere.

However, the city is not without its modern charms. Even the Bolshoi, Moscow’s oldest theatre, has had a contemporary facelift, although it maintains its old-world charm.

Near the historic Red Square lies the GUM, a huge shopping complex where locals and residents come to splash their cash. It certainly doesn’t hurt to have a bank-busting budget – you’ll need it for nights out. A huge amount has been invested into the city’s fine dining restaurants. Turandot, for example, is a must-visit eatery said to have swallowed up $40 million dollars with its interior design alone. Then there’s O2 Lounge at the Ritz, a trendy lounge with prices almost as dizzying as the views. .

Fortunately, there’s another side to the city that does not require Romanov-like riches. In recent years, Moscow residents have embraced a more outdoorsy lifestyle, and there are some lovely green spaces. At Izmailovsky Park, set in a 16th century royal estate, you can browse the market for souvenirs. Alternatively, Gorky Park, named for the Soviet era author Maxim Gorky, draws visitors and locals alike as soon as there’s a hint of sunshine.

What to do in Moscow

Relax at Sandunovsky Spa

There’s nothing more relaxing than steaming away your troubles at the banya, or Russian sauna –so long as you don’t embrace the local tradition that involves being beaten with birch twigs. Sandunovsky (also known as Sanduny) is Moscow’s most famous and luxurious banya. Take a local friend along if you’re not familiar with the etiquette.

Skate (or stroll) at Gorky Park

Gorky Park is a space for all seasons. In summer it transforms into an on-site amusement park, complete with Ferris wheel. But the magic really happens in winter when the ponds freeze over and it becomes Europe’s biggest ice rink.

Visit Red Square

The Red Square is an absolute Moscow must-see. A visit to this icon can encompass not only the square itself but also other stunning icons. This includes the 16th century St Basil’s Cathedral, the State History Museum, the Kremlin and Lenin’s Mausoleum (which is only open on certain days – so it’s best to check ahead). You’ll also have a chance to see the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Once you’ve seen the sights, take a stroll along the nearby Moscow River.

Where to eat in Moscow

Piccolino (Italian)

As you’d expect from a restaurant whose name is Italian for small, Piccolino is rather cosy. But while the place is small, the portions are generous – hearty, home-cooked Italian food, served in a setting designed to resemble a rustic country house. This is a welcome antidote to some of Moscow’s glitzier venues.

Delicatessen (International)

This trendy restaurant is a hidden gem – in fact, the entrance boasts a sign that says, “Thank you for finding us”. More than worth the search, the food is outstanding, with the eclectic menu scribbled on the walls. They serve everything from pasta and pizza to oxtail and ceviche, plus the best burgers in town.

Café Pushkin (Russian)

Dining at the ever-popular Café Pushkin means booking well in advance, but it’s worth it. A restaurant, 24-hour cafe and rooftop terrace, everything from the decor to the uniforms has been curated to feel like you’re dining in pre-revolutionary Russia.

Red October Factory, Moscow

“Krasny Oktyabr”, as it’s called by locals, is a 4.72-hectare mixed-use complex located on the westernmost part of Bolotny Island, not far from the Kremlin. Plans to convert the 19th Century complex into residences were stymied in the face of a faltering economy, but it wasn’t long before the creative community moved in to transform the area into one of Moscow’s coolest neighbourhoods. Today, the red-bricked labyrinth is home to design studios, production houses, restaurants with terraces and artisan boutiques Read more Red October Factory, Moscow
