GO TO PLACES WHEN YOU ARE IN MOSCOW

The Red Square and Kremlin.  Although busy tourist spots, they are unique places in terms of architecture where the Russian style, as we know it today, was formed.

FAVORITE UNDER-THE-RADAR-NIGHTSPOT


Denis Simachev Shop & Bar is a long-time favorite nightspot.  A more underground location is Rabitsa. The crowd at Rabitsa may be on the younger side, but it is where all of the fresh and creative force is concentrated.

FAVORITE RESTAURANT

Café Pushkin is a must for Russian food.  More contemporary spots include the newly opened Technikum and Uilliam’s, which is perfectly located in the Patriarchy ponds area.  Other favorites include Ugolek and Severyane.  If you like Georgian food, try Patara or Sakhli, where the best Khinkalis (Georgian dumplings) are made.

Your impression of Moscow for New Visitors
"A city that actually never sleeps, everything is possible and accessible 24\7, from food to blowouts and manicures."


Favorite item to take back home
"Either caviar and smoked sturgeon (which can be found at the Dorogomilovsky market) or an Orenburg shawl."
