Moscow – Summary

We had a very nice 6-day stay. We were lucky to have a very nice Airbnb. It was our first Airbnb experience and it was great. The apartment was spacious, very centrally located and very quiet.

Our highlights:

  • Kremlin
  • Saint Basil’s Cathedral
  • Our 2 evenings out: Nikulin Circus & Bolshoi Theatre
  • Park Gorki
  • Interior of Cathedral of Christ the Saviour
  • European gallery of Pushkin museum
  • Resto White Rabbit
  • Church of St. Nicholas in Khamovniki


Our general impression:

  • Very clean
  • Efficient metro (although it takes a couple of days to get used to it…)
  • Changing weather
  • Large boulevards
  • Difficult to find (mostly underground) pedestrian crossings
  • Most of Moscow sidewalks are under renovation
  • Safe
  • Live music bands in streets (at night)
  • Russians do not smile a lot (they don’t show much emotion)
  • Booze takes nearly half the space in the supermakets


To visit during next stay:

  • Red October
  • Zvenigorod
  • Izmailovo (flea) market
  • Sanduny Baths
  • Danilovsky Market
  • Komsomolskaya metro station
