You can not miss visiting Moscow when you travel to Russia. Even if it is a “more difficult” city with foreigners, it is here that you will really feel that you are in a different country from all those you have visited. In this post, we will give you practical advice on a really fantastic script about the city and everything you need to make a wonderful journey.
Red Square is the symbol of the country and is one of those places you can not visit. Here are some of the city’s most important sights, such as the colorful cathedral and St. Basil’s basilica, the historical museum, the chiquérrimo shopping gum, the Lenin mausoleum and the Krémlin.
Here is the most touristic part of the city and, depending on the time of year, you will need to have some patience to enter the places. It is worth spending at least part-time in the Kremlin, as there are many churches and places to visit inside. Already for the cathedral it takes 2 hours (counting the time to buy the ticket).
Now, visiting Lenin’s Mausoleum is the most complicated part, because the queues are always gigantic. I suggest you keep an eye on the queue from the moment you arrive at the Piazza, and when you think it’s down, run there. Another suggestion is to wait for the end of the day, which is when the queues become much smaller.
This is one of my favorite parks in the city. In fact, since it is farther from the center, the ideal is to spend the day there and eat in one of the restaurants that are located at the entrance to the park or even bring a sandwich.
The nice thing about this park is that it has a bit of everything. Here you will find married newlyweds, a very old cathedral, a splendid view of the city and even buildings recreated from the time before Peter the Great. There is everything here!
