Ulitsa Obraztsova, 11, стр.1, лит. А, Moskva, Russia, 127055
This is one of the most-recommended museums in Moscow. It opened in 2012 and is the most technologically advanced and modern museum I have ever been to. There is a 4D movie about the creation story and every exhibition feels somewhat like a theme...

Bolotnaya Naberezhnaya, 3, стр. 1, Moskva, Russia, 119072
This is hands down my favorite art-space in Moscow. The space is rather small -- three exhibition rooms plus a bookshop and café -- but the quality of the curated pieces is outstanding. The art is exclusively photography, and the descriptions and...

Ulitsa Volkhonka, 15, Moskva, Russia, 119019
This is one of the biggest Russian Orthodox cathedrals in Moscow, and the inside is stunning. There are icons everywhere and it is filled with gold-tinged ceilings, candle-stands, and the smell of beeswax. On Sundays, the church is particularly...

Prospekt Mira, 111, Moskva, Russia, 129223
Located in the park with the scale model of the solar system and tucked underneath the giant monument to space exploration, there is this museum. It is an information and collection-dense museum. Among the many exhibitions of the museum, there are...

Minskaya Ulitsa, 2Б, Moskva, Russia, 121096
The masjid here is gorgeous: marble, chandeliers, and full of a sense of light and air. It is one of the four mosques in Moscow and is open for salah from fajr to isha. Jummah prayers are offered on Fridays (depending on the season it changes, but...

Ploshchad' Pobedy, 1а, Moskva, Russia, 121170
The monument is of a line of people slowly falling down like dominoes and becoming gravestones. It is worth seeing this at night: all lit up and even more startling than in daylight. Nearby is the Jewish memorial museum and synagogue. (FYI: The...

Moscow, Russia, 129366
In the summer (or the winter), walking around here is a joy. There is a scale model of the solar system, people everywhere, and a giant monument to space exploration and the cosmonauts. Go on a weekend afternoon if you want to be with the crowds...

Red Square, Moskva, Russia, 109012
On Red Square, you can see the black pyramid with the word: ЛЕНИН . This is Lenin’s mausoleum, and simply for the experience, you can go check out his preserved body in a glass case inside the pyramid. Per legend, Lenin’s body didn’t begin to...

Prospekt Mira, 211, стр.1, Moskva, Russia, 129226
Metro System: What you have heard is true. Moscow’s Metro rivals any other with its beauty, extensiveness, and sheer number of people. There are mosaics (Arbatskaya), gorgeous paintings (Kievskaya), tributes to every branch of the armed services...

Krasnaya ploshad, Moskva, Russia, 109012
If you can go to Red Square at night, do. If you can't, go during the day. Either way, definitely go see the quintessential center of Moscow. While foreigners go there (and get their photos taken with the Lenin and Stalin impersonators by the...

улица Крымский Вал, 10, Moskva, Russia, 119049
Before I had ever been to Moscow, the Soviet statue graveyard was on my destination-list. When I finally got to see the place, it merited its five-year spot on my wanderlust list. Seeing so many Stalin and Lenin statues gathered in one space and...

Bolotnaya Ploshchad', Moskva, Russia
A ten minute walk from Red Square, there is a small forest of love-lock trees. Couples used to lock the locks onto the small bridge, but the weight was damaging. The city erected a number of metal trees upon which the locks are now attached. It’s...

Krimsky Val, 9, Moskva, Russia, 119049
This seems to be everyone’s favorite park to walk and meet up in for good reason. It’s filled with a huge ice-skating rink in the winter and bicycles and flowers all summer. There are little stands to get coffee or tea, people selling roasted corn...
Save Place
Lavrushinsky Ln, 10, Moskva, Russia, 119017
The Tretyakov is of the most renowned art museums in the world, just like the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. It has a lovely collection of Russian Soviet pieces (on the top floor) as well as contemporary and modern art and many galleries with art...

New Arbat Ave, 8, Moskva, Russia, 121069
One of the most well-known bookstores in Russia, Dom Knigi (House of Books) can be found throughout the city. It’s worth just walking through them. They often have foreign literature (translated into Russian and in the original) as well as pocket...
