As one of the largest cities in the world, Moscow is a center for major cultural activity. It has one of the best public transportation networks in the world, which makes it easy to get around, and beautiful parks that you can walk through. The city is over one thousand years old and has incredible museums and old onion-domed churches that will give you a sense of its history, and is a very artistic place with incredible theaters like the Bolshoi Ballet. This is a great place to visit if you’re interested in experiencing the center of Russian life.
Try out one of the many festivals in the city throughout the year, including Victory Day in May, which celebrates the end of World War II, Taste of Moscow in June, and the Russian Winter Festival from December to January. Take in the theatre scene via your own planning or during the Chekhov International Theatre Festival, which is year-round. Take in the works of art that are the city’s famous churches and cathedrals, including Cathedral Square in the heart of Moscow, which is also known as the Kremlin or go see the incredible art at the Tretyakov Gallery. Learn about one of Russia’s finest creations at The Vodka Museum (tastings included). Nearby you’ll find the flea market, but beware of the risks of drinking and shopping!
Of all the beautiful parks in Moscow, be sure to visit Gorkiy Park, where you can visit the amusement park and see a place that is central to the city’s incredible history.
Though it is impossible to do this in a day, try to make time in your itinerary to head north to the White Nights Festival in St Petersburg. It takes place from May to July and features a carnival, traditional dance, historical reenactments and a full schedule of performances, including ballet, opera, classical music at The Mariinsky Theatre. From Moscow, head west to one of the Russian palaces, Arkhangelskoye Estate, for a peaceful day of strolling (and, if you wish, picnicking) amongst the sculptures in the beautiful park. In June, the property is home to the annual Usadba Jazz Festival, featuring jazz, funk, world music, rock, and blues.
