Capsule Hotel inside Sheremetyevo airport?

by cupcakesFORbreakfast

Has anyone managed to book a room online at the “V Express” capsule hotel (inside Sheremetyevo airport)? I can't seem to get the booking to go through via

Anyone stayed there before? What was it like? Not too claustrophobic?

Its interior looks not as terrible as Japanese capsular , but I couldn’t find site page for booking in English , only Russian ( ) and with using Russian Masterbank payment system but not international cards. Try to ask them directly . Their website contains info about 2009 events, not updated. There is Novotel hotel in Sheremet’evo: Maybe try to book there.
Good luck,

Thanks Oleg! I mailed V Express using the e-mail address you suggested and they've replied with a booking confirmation. (At a slightly higher price than on the website so you were right about it being last year's prices).

Travel Tips for Moscow

La cathedrale de Basile-le-Bienheureux

by Klod5

Composée de 9 chapelles, la basilique fut construite sur l'ordre d'Ivan le Terrible entre 1555 et 1561 pour commémorer ses victoires sur la Horde d'Or (les Tatars).

Le tsar prit la ville de Kazan après un long siège, le 1er octobre 1552, jour de la fête religieuse orthodoxe de l'Intercession de la Vierge. De là vient la première appellation de ce monument: cathédrale de l'Intercession-de-la-Vierge (Pokrovski sobor na rvou).

La carte de visite de Moscou
Ivan le Terrible mettait ainsi fin à près de 300 ans d'occupation. Une légende dit que le tsar surveillait les travaux du haut de sa tour dans le kremlin et fit crever les yeux des architectes Barma et Postnik pour les empêcher de construire ailleurs le même chef d'œuvre... Une autre raconte que Barma et Postnik était un seul et même homme. Toujours est-il que cet ensemble architectural plein de fantaisie et unique au monde est aujourd'hui la carte de visite de Moscou, comme la tour Eiffel est celle de Paris.

Composed of 9 chapels, the basilica was constructed on Ivan's order the Terrifying between 1555 and 1561 to commemorate his victories on the Horde of gold (the Tatarses).

The czar took the city of Kazan after a long seat, October 1st, 1552, day of the orthodox religious feast of the Virgin's intercession. From there comes the first appellation of this monument: cathedral of the intercession of her (Pokrovski sobor na rvou).

The business card of Moscow
Ivan the Terrifying put thin thus to close to 300 years of occupation. A legend says that the czar supervised the works of the top of its tower in the kremlin and made burst the eyes of architects Barma and Postniks to stop them from constructing the same chief of œuvre elsewhere... Another tells that Barma and Postnik was one only and same man. Still is him that this architectural whole full of fantasy and unique to the world is today the business card of Moscow, as the Eiffel tower is the one of Paris.
La cathédrale prit le nom de Basile-le-Bienheureux après la construction d'une dixième chapelle sur la tombe de Vassili (Basilius), un simple d'esprit, qui aurait prédit la victoire d'Ivan le Terrible.

C'est en fait l'apothéose du style "en tente", inspiré de l'architecture en bois. L'élément central de la cathédrale, haut de 57m, est surmonté d'un toit en tente, tandis que les autres sont coiffés d'un dôme en forme d'oignon, dominé par de grandes croix dorées. Chacune d'eux présente une ornementation différentes: taillé en bossage, en diamants, décoré de stuc, de peintures brillantes ou de céramiques. Un plan rigoureux structure l'ensemble: il a la forme d'une croix grecque constituée d'une église centrale et de quatre chapelles orientées aux quatre points cardinaux, entre lesquels s'insèrent quatre autres chapelles plus petites.

The cathedral took the name of Basile-Le-Bienheureux after the construction of a tenth chapel on the tomb of Vassili (Basilius), a half-witted, that would have predicted Ivan's victory the Terrifying.

It is made of it the apotheosis of the style "in tent", inspired of the architecture in wood. The central element of the cathedral, high of 57m, is surmounted of a roof in tent, while the other are covered of a dome in the shape of onion, dominated by big golden crosses. Each of them present a different ornamentation: built in bossage, in diamonds, decorated of stucco, brilliant paintings or ceramics. A rigorous plan structures the whole: it has the shape of a Greek cross constituted of a central church and four oriented chapels to the four cardinal points, between which fit four other smaller chapels.

Seven sisterts of Stalin

by xaver

During 1947 to celebrate the 800 anniversary of the foundation of Moscow Stalin wanted to build seven giant palaces as, he thought that the city, compared to american ones, suffered a lack of big palaces(see if someone ever try to imitate good american thing), so with the new construction the city centre would have been more appropriate.To build the sisters Stalin called the architect Oltarzhevsky who worked on the costruction of some american buildings and who was rescued from gulag just in time for the new project. I must admitt I will miss some of these cold huge buildings that showed you the way to go when you got lost in smaller streets.

Driving in Moscow

by kris-t

You should drive very aggresive here (all do this way)/
For example my husband (who has been driver of trucks and has 21 years expiriensce in Canada) says that Moscow way to drive is too crazy for him :) . Than it's my duty - to drive in Moscow.

Ruls here are mostly the same (right turn with red light ia not allowed) - people are different. Be ready for suprises...
are you ready for that? American Driver license works here temporary (14 days).

rent car:

car 2002-2005 cost from 45 USD a day and they ask deposit 300-600 usd

Elokhovskaya Orthodox Church - 7 -

by MrBill

Okay, so despite my lack of Russian language skills, I did enjoy the service (for a while). However, it was quite long, and with so many bodies in the room, it started to get quite warm in a suit. Of course, all the better for the babies who were just about to get a rude plunge in the holy water. Also, the ceremony was quite complex, much more than dabbling a few drops of water on the baby and saying a prayer. Also, we got the history and religious study lessons, which no one appreciated much. All told, it took about one hour. The children all started out quite quiet and behaved, but by the end, they were restless and cranky. My godson slept for most of the time, until it came time for his bath, which he did not like very much. Towards the end with all the crying and the priest shouting to be heard above the noise, you would not have thought our intentions towards the children were malevolent. However, it was soon all over and done with. Surprisingly, us being heavens in the Church's eyes, ours was the only group that made a donation to the Church at the end. I guess all the other true defenders of the faith were too busy to support their Church.
