Moscow Travel Guide

Moscow Hotel Overview

These days, Moscow has a number of good hotels to choose from. If you covet luxurious rooms, well-appointed spas and attentive service, you can find them all in Moscow. The only snag is the scarcity of moderately priced or inexpensive hotels. Moscow's top hotels are definitely expensive, but if you stray from them, you're very likely to receive substandard quarters and service—not to mention lax security. Some hotels include transportation to and from the airport in your room rate, and some include breakfast.

There are several classes of hotels, which must be specified when booking. First class often has a swimming pool, but second class is, in most cases, sufficiently comfortable.

Among the best bargains are the dachas (country houses) outside of Moscow—stays can be arranged at Moscow travel agencies upon arrival. Other options include bed-and-breakfasts and homestays, which can be arranged prior to arrival in Moscow.

Moscow, Russia, is changing fast. Once-empty shops have become expensive restaurants, designer boutiques and 24-hour convenience stores. Moscow's nightlife, which used to be restricted to cheesy singers at bad restaurants, has exploded into one of the most vibrant and decadent party scenes in Europe. Yet the most surprising thing about today's Moscow is its normality—after years of massive upheaval, it has transformed itself into something resembling a typical European capital city.   Click here to see the full Moscow report »

Moscow's heart and soul, as well as its geographic center, is the Kremlin—a triangular, walled citadel on the Moskva River bordered by Red Square and Alexander Gardens. Inseparable from the Kremlin as part of the historic and spiritual center of Moscow is Red Square. Surrounding Red Square are such attractions as the Historical Museum, GUM (Russia's biggest department store), Kazan Cathedral, the reconstructed Resurrection Gates, St. Basil's Cathedral and the Lenin Mausoleum.  Click here to see the full Moscow report »

Moscow was founded in 1147 by Prince Yury Dolgoruky, and, thanks to its position along some major trade routes, it became prominent among the independent states that battled for dominance in medieval Russia. Ivan III (also known as Ivan the Great) secured the pre-eminence of the region in the late 1400s and built much of the old Kremlin area that still dominates the city's skyline. His grandson Ivan IV (the notorious Ivan the Terrible) crowned himself Russia's first czar, a Russianized version of "Caesar," after conquering the Tartars, who had terrorized Russia for three centuries. In honor of his historic victory, he built St. Basil's Cathedral on Red Square in 1568—still the city's most famous landmark.   Click here to see the full Moscow report »

The best way to introduce yourself to the capital of Russia is to head straight for Red Square, in the very center of Moscow. There you'll find three of the most enduring symbols of Russia: onion-domed St. Basil's Cathedral, the Kremlin (the centuries-old seat of Russian rulers) and Lenin's Tomb, in which the embalmed body of the Soviet Union's founder lies.  Click here to see the full Moscow report »

Moscow's nightlife has undergone a dramatic revolution over the past few decades: It's now one of the wildest, most decadent cities in Europe with a wide range of clubs, discos and bars. It's also surprisingly sophisticated. There still are a few strip joints around, which are worth a visit for their historic interest. But the real style gurus hang out at excluzivny techno clubs and yuppie bars, students go to pulsing rave clubs, and the bohemian crowd flocks to underground squats and smoky dive bars. At the trendy clubs, be ready for heavy-duty "face control"—beautiful people are let in, and others are turned away.   Click here to see the full Moscow report »
