Moscow Travel Guide

Why? It was the remote, largely inaccessible headquarters of the Soviet Union for decades, but now a holiday in Moscow is not only possible but a top choice for all those whose imaginations were captured by life behind the iron curtain. Besides the 'must see' sights like the Kremlin and Bolshoi, Moscow has numerous other interesting attractions. Most who travel to Moscow, however, get the biggest kick out of just strolling its main neighbourhoods, seeking out points of interest and admiring the many newly-restored churches.

When? The best time to holiday in Moscow is during the summer months, from May until late August, which is the peak tourist season. Winters are best avoided except for the most determined tourists because they are bitterly cold and snowy with very short, dull days.

Who for? A holiday in Moscow is for anyone who enjoys seeing some of the world's iconic buildings and sights, and is interested in exploring the soul of Russia.
