Invitation from an accomodation in Moscow for a visa

by durenkamp

Hello,

In May 2009 we are going to Moscow. I am going to use a visa service in the Netherlands to get me a visa. The hotel however I want to book myself.

Does anyone have tips on booking a cheap hotel or other accomodation, a bit in the centre of Moscow, which provide you with an invitation letter ?

Thanks for your answers.

As regards booking a cheap hotel online, I would recommend that you either go for Expedia.com or RightReservations.com. I have found these sites to be quite cheap (specially the later one - when it comes to final grand total) for online & phone hotel reservations. I am not sure about the invitation but you might consider calling their U.S. Toll Free numbers to see if they can help you with that. Alternatively you can choose a hotel on these sites and then call that hotel directly to check if they would arrange an invitation for you. You may not be able to get a lower rate when booking directly with the hotel, but you'll most likely get the visa invitation information from them.

Travel Tips for Moscow

Moscow Tip

by ianrmillard

The office with which I worked was off Leninsky Prospekt, not far from the well known statue of the cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space
In the warmer weather it looked better! One could buy and drink horrible-tasting kvass from a whitecoated old lady operating a little wheeled tank.Another favourite memory is that of swimmming daily, almost alone, in the vast 'Moskva' outdoor swimming pool, the largest in the world, since used as the site for the rebuilt Christ the Saviour Cathedral, an exact replica of the original 1912 cathedral, blown up on the orders of Stalin in 1934. The plan had been to build a 'Palace of the Soviets' to outdo the American skyscrapers. When the ground was belatedly found to be too soft for such a massive and heavy construction, the site was -- 20 years later -- turned into the huge circular swimming pool I recall well.
The Kropotkinskaya district starts close to the Kremlin walls and is now a conservation zone (whatever that may mean in today's Moscow). This was the traditional aristocratic quarter of the city; Tolstoy and many other famous figures lived here

Sightseeing

by tini58de

Something that every tourist should go see is the Kremlin, the Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral, GUM, the metro and the Lomonossov University. There is so much more to see and so many aspects of Moscow, that it really depends on the time and the way of travelling.

If you go to the Red Square, you will have 70% of the "must see places" within walking distance - and you will still need a lot of time just visiting those! Standing in front of St. Basil's Cathedral - a dream had come true!!!

The Spaso-Andronnikov Monastery

by kris-t

The Monastery was founded in the middle of XIV century. The famous icon-painter, Andrey Rublev, was this monastery's monk at the end of XIV - the beginning of XV centuries. Fragments of A. Rublev's frescoes remain on the walls of the Spassky Cathedral, which belongs to the Monastery. On the Monastery territory there are a lot of graves of great and famous Russian cultural and art figures, whose monuments have been kept. Nowadays on the Monastery territory there is the Museum of Russian Ancient Culture and Art named after
A. Rublev, which contains a unique collection of old icons from all over Russia. In the Museum you can acquaint yourself with the process of making icons, the technology of making boards and paints, which interprets the meaning of a certain icon, and with the history of various schools of Russian icon-painting of different epochs

Visiting Moscow Sites during a Wedding

by pinik

Usually after visiting the registry office on a wedding day and before the wedding dinner at a restaurant (cafe or just at home) newly-married couple, their freinds and relatives are going for a walk around Moscow. There are some traditional places (points) for such wedding walks. Vorobievy Gory view point is one of them. On a Saturday (especially during summer or early autumn time) there are a lot of weddings there drinking champagne, eating chocolates, taking photographs of the couple with Moscow at background.
Some people find it interesting to come to the place, to compare wedding dresses of brides and guest's costumes :)
Usually, brides wear white dresses but sometimes it's possible to meet a bride in a red dress (by the way, the red colour was the traditional wedding dress colour in the ancient Russia)

Weather.

by mwe

All my Moscow pictures are taken with a 1999 Rollei Prego 90 35mm compact & Fuji Reala 100 film. It was hot (30+C/86+F) & sunny when I visited Moscow in July, 1999.
Of course Moscow in winter (like Canada & the northern & northeastern USA) continues to debunk the idea of global warming & still has 'proper' winters.
