    Can you believe it - we have beaten both Spain and Greece as budget travelling goes! Here is what the Backpacker Index says, giving us # 14 - between Bratislava and Prague: Certainly one of the world’s most important cities, Moscow continues also to be frustrating for many travelers, with relatively few hostels and traveler-friendly budget...

  • Red Square/Kremlin

    Moscow Favorites

    Despite my reputation I'm not actually a total drunkard. I never start on the beer until I've done something either productive, cultural or energetic (and sometimes all three). Wandering around the Red Square and Kremlin area on my first morning I fancied a coffee but because my hotel had required payment in cash, which had used up most of my...

  • Streets of Moscow

    Moscow Favorites

    This is another place I came across during my random wanderings. It seems that Club Solyanka, on the street of the same name, is one of Moscow's hippest nightclubs but on a swelteringly-hot June afternoon I was more interested in finding somewhere to sit in the shade and have a cold beer. It's not obvious from the street but my beer nose led me up...

    OK. This isn't really a serious tip but just a bit of naughty observation. Whilst doing my random wandering bit and taking photos about places I didn't have a clue about, it so happened that not long after I'd taken a pic of the famous St Basil's Cathedral I'd taken a pic from across the river of the Stalin Skyscraper, the Kotelnicheskaya...

    Moscow Favorites

    This is one of the most beautiful convents in Moscow and its was founded in the early 16th century. Its main cathedral was consecrated in honour of the Smolenskaya Icon of the Mother of God Hodigitria. According to legend, the icon was painted by St. Luke himself, and it is closely linked with the convent's foundation. The icon was brought to Rus...

  • Moscow Metro

    Moscow Favorites

    Moscow's metro was inaugurated in 1935 and since then the network grew to 11 lines and covers a distance of about 300 km. Many of the stations from Soviet times are fine examples of socialist realism and therefore well worth seeing. Unfortunately, in the past taking photos was prohibited, but nowadays it looks like nobody really cares about...

    The nearest vicinities of the Red Square, including Manezhnaya Square are the places most attended by Muscovites for the last four centuries. In XV century in the old Moscow here lived handicraftsmen and shopkeepers selling the products at the entrances of their workshops. In the beginning of Peter the Great ruling period there were set up the...

  • Parks/Estates

    Moscow Favorites

    Tourism can be thirsty work, especially when the sun's out and you've been randomly street walking most of the day. Not only that but every so often you need to take the weight off the feet and sit and watch the world go by. Fortunately during my afternoon in Gorky Park I discovered that there are several strategically-located cafes and Cafe...
