Hello everyone, I am planning a week to Moscow in October. Could anyone recommend things to do, places to visit and have lovely dinners?
My wife and I would like to experience, taste things, and discover unconventional cozy places to have a glimpse of how locals eat, have fun and enjoy life.
Hi! First of all, you should visit the Kremlin, then the Bolshoy theatre (of coarse, if you can afford that), or any other theatre. Try delicious food in restaurant Pushkin, Academia or one just new cafe Gipsy. The nightlife in Moscow is absolutely crazy, visit nightclub like Soho, Ray or Garage. There are a lot of interesting places here, just Google them) about 8 years ago
Hi! Wish you good luck in travelling! I can recommend you to visit The Red Square, The Pushkin Museum, other popular museums! I can also recommend you to visit some small towns near the Moscow. If you want to see some new parts of Moscow, visit The Moscow City part of the town. Good luck! about 8 years ago
Try Avgust cafe on Chekhovskaya, Dacha restaurant on Pokrovsky blvd, take a walk around Pokrovka, Solyanka and Patriarshi prudy, visit the Moscow Multimedia Art Museum (aka Dom Fotografii) and Mayakovsky's house, check places like Vinzavod for interesting exhibitions and clubs like Dzhao Da for interesting music, see if there still are fireshows at Bolotnaya on October nights, go to the Tretyakov, see some Dali in the Pushkinsky, have a walk in the Neskuchny garden and the Park Kultury next to it. about 8 years ago
So if u want to have a fun, first you should go shopping. It can be progressive, if u visit gum, okhotnii rjad, evropeiskii. Then you should visit of course red square, kremlin and museums. If you like it you can visit theaters. Big theater for exAmple. Vogue cafe is the best cafe where I've been. So it's ma opinion and ma recommendations.))) have a good travel! about 8 years ago
Forget Pushkin museum if you want to taste local life)) first go to Red October - this is an art and leisure center for the hippest people in town: go to Strelka institute, Gippsy, have a drink at Art Academy (an art gallery, book store and a restauant at one place), visit fotocenter and many other places you will want to see. And it has different athmosphere depending of the time - more quite in at a daylight and more cool and funny when evening starts
On the way there you can come over to a restored church of Jesus the Savior.
Regarding the Pushkin museum I would recommed to go to Private collections museum instead (next door to Pushkin) for the great exhibition of modernists and impresionists.
you should visit TSUM (a department store next to Big Theater) and see affluent russian people doing their shopping. And you can have a good luch at the caffee in GlobusGourmet supermarket on -1 floor.
If you want to have a dinner with a good view on a city go to White Rabbit restaurant in Smolenkiy passage. There is much better view on a city than in Hyatt, probably only the O2 bar on the roof of Ritz hotel can compete with this place (but book a table on the second floor and insist to be seated there - it's busy place even on weekdays)
Visit Park Gorkogo (Парк Горького) and Hermitage garnden - nice old parks where people love to walk and have fun.
If you have a chance go to Ragout restaurant. This is exeptional place that is run by Moscow slowfood experts who use organic market products.
Pushkin caffee - must visit for everyone. It's still very good after so many years. Just keep in mind that prices in menu depends of the floor you choose.
Good luck about 8 years ago
Don't buy souveniers in The Red Square. Too expensive. The best way is to buy a magnet to fridge :) 7-10 $ and get a lot of photos.
Don't take taxi in rush hour (8-10 am, 5-8 pm) use underground. And, by the way, the best way to get taxi in Moscow is to raise your hand. You will get russian car with Central Asia driver immediately :) minimum payment is 100 roubles (3,5$) maximum 600-700 from one side of Moscow to the other. Yellow taxi is expensive. almost 8 years ago
