Awarded ‘50 Tours of a Lifetime’ by National Geographic Traveler Magazine.
Moscow is a must-see for all Russia tours, as this cultural wonder is packed with amazing events and sights that just can't be passed up. As one of the largest cities in the world, the checklist for what you'll want to do while there can be overwhelming. However, there are a few sights that you just can't pass up. Here are three things you should check out while visiting Moscow.
Take a bite out of Georgian food
Georgian food has been popular in Moscow for quite some time. There are a number of amazing restaurants such as local chain Cafe Khachapuri, which is known for its different variations of its namesake, khachapuri, a traditional Georgian bread stuffed with melted sulguni cheese.
Georgian food is just one of the many great things to eat while in Moscow including borscht, a hearty winter soup, and blini, which are very similar to French crepes with sweet and savory flavors.
Enjoy the view
Those looking for the best view of the city should go to the City Space Bar, on the top floor of the Swissotel Krasnye Holmy. This bar has an amazing view of the city - not to mention, it also has great service and some pricey, yet fantastic cocktails. There is another terrace that has a great view, but is best in the summer. The Sky Lounge on the top of the Russian Academy of Sciences has an amazing view. Even though the cocktails are not as inventive as the City Space Bar, there is more to chose from in terms of food.
Take the subway
You have likely never seen something so beautiful as the train stations in Russia. There are a number of stations you must see including Novoslobodskaya, Komsomolskaya, Mayakovskaya and Ploschad Revolutsii, among many more. You can either visit these various stations on your own or you can take the Moscow Metro Tour. No matter what, you are going to want to take the train just to see them. These stations have high beautiful ceilings. In addition, just as gorgeous as they are, they are also efficient. You will likely not have to wait more than a couple minutes for the next train to come.
As your small motorboat slides onto the sandy bank of a deserted beach and your attentive guides set up a gourmet seaside picnic, all that’s left to do is allow the turquoise waters of this remote paradise wash away your stresses.
