Moscow City Guide

Brief History

Moscow, like the larger Russian nation, has a long and storied history. No one knows exactly when Moscow was founded, but we know from historical records that it was a thriving city as early as the 12th century. Since then, it has been at the heart of many of Russia’s upheavals over the years. It was briefly sidelined in 1712, when the capital was moved to Petrograd (St. Petersburg), but it returned to the spotlight following the Revolution in 1917. As the capital of the Soviet Union and now of the Russian Federation, it is a major seat of power and a crucial player in world politics.

Transportation

Moscow, a massive city that houses no less than 1 tenth of all Russian citizens, is served by 3 different airports. People seeking flights to Moscow can choose from Sheremetyevo International Airport, Domodedovo International Airport, Vnukovo International Airport. These airports will vary in price, but not necessarily in any predictable way. In all cases, there is some form of public transportation to take visitors into the city – at least a bus, and in most cases a train as well. There are also taxis, which are faster than public transit, but also more expensive.

When it comes to public transportation, its hard to beat the Moscow Metro. It covers all areas of the city, is quite cheap and reliable, and passes through beautiful and ornate subway stations that are worth seeing in and of themselves. Like all major subway systems, it is confusing at first sight – it’s a good idea to spend some time with a map during your flight to get an understanding of the system before you arrive. Moscow is also a surprisingly walkable city, considering its size. Its residential areas are spread out, but most of the tourist attractions are clustered in the central neighborhoods near the river. Moscow also weaves together many layers of history that can only be seen on foot.

Popular Attractions

  • There are two must-see sites in Moscow: The Kremlin/Red Square, and St. Peter’s Basilica. The Kremlin is a large and historic palace that is the Russian equivalent of the UK’s 10 Downing Street, or America’s White House. St. Peter’s Basilica is an iconic and somewhat whimsical-looking cathedral with large, colorfully-decorated domes and spires.
  • For a unique experience, check out the Museum of Soviet Arcade Machines. Here you can play games developed by the same Soviet designers who invented Tetris, and get a sense for the playful side of the USSR.
  • For history buffs, the Lenin Mausoleum is a must-see. The embalmed body of revolutionary leader Vladimir Lenin is on display for the public.
  • The Institute of Russian Realist Art has many exemplary pieces of this unique and distinctive style of visual art.

Food

Most food in Moscow is global and cosmopolitan, but there are a few local treats that are worth trying. One of the most popular is blinchiki, which can be described as Moscow’s take on the French crêpe.

Tips for Travelers

  • Russia has very strict visa requirements for visitors from nearly all countries. You will need to have a visa in advance, which often takes several weeks. Tourists should not plan on getting visas after their flights to Moscow land at the airport; you will probably not be admitted into the country if you do this.
