The best place to get that organised is from the Concierge at your hotel. They will have a list of licencensed (or at least reliable) tour guides who speak your language and can show you around.

Normally, July is the warmest month of the year in Moscow. End of June should be warm too. But you never know. Have a jacket (just in case)

Travel Tips for Moscow

Moscow Photos

by Muscovite

If you would trade stones for people, your next step would be the Metro, that's the Underground , or Subway, or the Tube, I do not know how they call it in Kuwait. Today you would need 11 roubles one way, but they are going to raise the tariff in the New Year ? again! The Circular line (brown), linked to the railway stations, by the public opinion has the most spectacular stations as well as tramps. Be careful.
My favourite stations are:
? The classical Kropotkinskaya - red line, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, whose impressionists were temporarily arrested in Switzerland, quite a sight in itself, I mean the museum, not the arrest incident. The Saviour Cathedral is there, too ? to my taste, the seven Stalin's skyscrapers can boast of more style than this blotter.
? The stain-glass Novoslobodkaya ? Circular line
? Mayakovakya with its mosaics, if they are still there after the renovation works. If you have a guidebook with you, you will read about the meeting the government held there during the war (when Russians speak of the War, they mean World War II)
I have no particular fancy about Komsomolskaya, it is too heavy, and there are always too many people. However, I do hold the author of the mosaics in deep respect, you will find his works in the Tretyakov Gallery if you have patience with Russian paintings, they are altogether grave, like our literature. If you actually come to Komsomolskaya and if you have spare 11 roubles for your return ticket, go up and take a picture of the hotel Leningrad, that's the most elegant of the 'seven sisters'. Then take three more pictures of the three railway stations there, they stand for the three components of the Russian national character. That's not a received scientific theory, too bad, just my own observation.
Stay away from the Metro in a rush hour, or you may end up without your camera, or wallet. By the way, you can by a pass for 10 rides, it will be cheaper than a single ticket.

More things to see...

by Anya_D

So, I am continuing... If you have more than 2 days in Moscow, I suggest you use your time for exploring its museums, estates and just streets a bit better...

See my 'MUST SEE ACTIVITIES' for more information on certain activities. 6. History Museum. Located in the Red Square. Gives you the idea of how the Russians used to live many centuries ago, how the city was growing, what it looked like, what people looked like.. But its collection covers not only Russian history, but, literally, the history of the world.

7. Arbat Street. Both new Arbat and Old Arbat are worth visiting, but go first to Old one, and you will know why...

8. Novodevichy Convent and cemetery. Convents and monasteries are the intergal part of Russian life, both in the past and now. They are islands of beauty and piece in the crazy modern environment. The Cemetery is famous for the people who are buried there.

9. Pushinskaya Square. Beautiful square to sit in the trees, watch people, have a dinner. Good for an evening stroll, with beautiful buildings along Tverskaya street.

10. The Bolshoi Theatre. No comments needed. Just get a ticket and go!

Visit Arbat Street - it is a...

by Hanna_S

Visit Arbat Street - it is a 'pedestrian only' street full of painters showing their work, other artists organising their spectacles. That special place attracts also small traders. There are nice shops and lots of restaurants meeting different tastes. And tourists of course.

Resteraunt service

by biggeorge

Resteraunt service can vary in quality widely , although the old service with a scowl stereotype is slowly being replaced by a more western cultural experience it's still possible to find some of the worst service this side of Paris in Moscow and this is normally for one of two reasons.

1 Pretension - we mean you Faq cafe and you Vogue cafe ( where a friends sugar shaker was snatched by the waiter - apparently more than three sugars in a coffee is declassee ? ) . The staff in these places are too sophisticated to do anything like take orders or bring drinks and instead stand around judging people according to their clothes and appearance ( bad luck if you're from Iowa ). If you aint silovki or a model you're service will wither and die like Russian democracy.

2 Tradition - Russians are very honest people and if they don't like their job or foreigners in general they will take it out on you , because you hang youre coat on the back of your chair like a barbarian or you mangle their language.

It's also worth noting that in the states it's possible to alter meals on the menu to suit whichever dieting fad has blown in from California , however this is not traditional in Russia and even in US themed resteraunts should be avoided , unless you want your meal to be altered by people spitting in it or worse have it not arrive at all. This seems strange that a meal can be ordered ( and billed for ) but not delivered but it's quite normal indeed the mark of a good resteraunt is the fact that the meals arrive together and at the same temperature.

International Women's Day

by kris-t

In Russia International Women's Day - Mezhdunarodnui zhenski den' - is marked on 8 March every year.
Started as a political event, the holiday blended in the culture of Russia. Tt's one of most important holidays in Russia. The celebration is similar to a combination between Valentine's Day and Mother's Day in the West but better.
The day remains an official holiday in Russia (and day off) and is observed by men giving the women in their lives - mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc., flowers and small gifts.

At this day all men in Russia traditionally congratulate all women in their lives (mothers, wives, daughters, grandmothers, girl-friends, teachers, colleagues...) with first spring flowers: mimosa, and tulips, candy and cards with self-made short poems. Every woman of any age has present on this day, all women are honored! At this day Russian women are surrounded with flowers, love, and poems and caress . She doesn't aloud to do anything in house at that day: men's do all cooking, cleaning…. The Women Day - 8th of March is the best holyday for Russian women of any age.

you are in Moscow? - Don't forget to congratulate every woman around!
