10 must visit places in Moscow | Russia
Hello everyone! My name is Daria!
There are hundreds points of attraction in Moscow but I guess if you have only couple of days you haven’t so much time to visit all of them, that’s why for your attention I will show you my favorite places in Moscow. I see the best time for visiting Moscow since April because for example in this March we had terrible spring with 10 degrees below zero. If you don’t want to be frozen and want to walk more welcome since late spring. All of the places which I’m going to tell about are in the center. Let’s get into it!
1. Red square
The Red Square is the most popular and that’s why most of the time crowded city plaza in Moscow but despite this fact I like to be there and set a meeting point near Ohotny ryad station. It absolutely should be the
first place in your travel rout. Red Square is a beautiful historical place with many interesting buildings and monuments around. I like the atmosphere which you can feel walking along the streets.
2. St. Basil’s Cathedral
Собор Василия Блаженного
On the Red square you may see a colorful unusual cathedral. It’s a St. Basil’s Cathedral. It was built in 16th century and now works as a museum
This is a unique cathedral, mix of details has no analogues in Russian architecture.
More info you may find here
The ticket for adults is 350 rubles.
It’s on Red Square, as well, near St.Basils Cathedral. This is a huge beautiful shopping mall in neo-Russian style where you can walk inside, eat an ice-cream and visit Stolovaya No 57. It’s a canteen which offers Russian Soviet Food.
4. Bolshoi theatre and places around
Большой театр и места вокруг
The Bolshoi Theatre is a historic theatre in Moscow and one of the huge in Russia, which holds ballet and opera performances and which you may see on 100 rubles banknote.
You will see Bolshoy theatre, Maliy Theathe (Малый театр), TsuM ЦУМ (it’s a premium shopping mall mostly with expensive brands) and go to Kuznetskiy most street. You will find plenty of bars and cafes. I adore this district because It’s full of live. In spring and in summer musician bands play on the streets. Their performances and genres are different and you will enjoy just sitting on a bench and listening to music.
5. Old Arbat st and New Arbat st
Старый Арбат и Новый Арбат
There are 2 parallel streets. Old Arbat is one of the oldest street. Moscow intellectuals such as Pushkin, Blok, Tolstoy, Gogol, Chehov and many others lived there. New Arbat is a modern designed street with contemporary installations, benches and buildings.
6. Cathedral of Christ the Savior (view point)
Храм Христа Спасителя (смотровая площадка)
The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour (Храм Христа Спасителя,) is a Russian Orthodox cathedral in Moscow, Russia, it is the tallest Orthodox Christian church in the world. More info about this one is here, check it out.
The entry is free but if you want to go to see a view point the ticket cost as I remember around 200 rubles.
7. Kitay-Gorod district, Maroseyka st
Район Китай-города, ул. Маросейка
I love this street for its wonderful atmosphere. You may feel an old Moscow here. There are plenty of nice buildings, cafes with terraces outside, churches. Order a cup of coffee and watching people walking by.
8. Gorky park
Has a huge territory. It’s a very popular place in the capital. In warm time of a year, you will see many people of different ages, cultures, styles , you may take a participation in dancing classes which are held on the embankment of Moscow River, watch movies under the sky, listen to music bands, have a rest near lakes or river, ride on bicycle or other strange vehicle.
9. Zaryadye Park
I add this one, because it’s a new park which was finished in 2017. This project was a new and innovative for Moscow. You will see the “floating bridge”, amphitheater with futuristic roof, media centers. I think this is worthy of your attention.
Ulitsa Varvarka 6, Building 1
10. The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts
Музей изобразительных искусств имени Пушкина
This is one of my favorite museums. It looks like an ancient temple of Greece but in the center of urban life. Art Collection is different, you will find sculptures, paintings, and graphics of outstanding European artists of different centuries.
This building is more than 100 years old.
Mostly there are many people want to get there and avoiding waiting in a line you may buy tickets online.
300 rubles for adults
Moscow, Russia, Volkhonka 12
These were 10 places where you can go and feel real Moscow life. Thanks for your attention. Welcome! Bye!
