Yakimanka District, Moscow, Russia
We visited various sights in Moscow. The guide we had hired took us to an out of the way park where this memorial had been placed for the victims of Stalin's many pograms. It was quite striking but perhaps even more so, as at the same park were...
Bol'shaya Nikitskaya Ulitsa, 13/6, стр.1, Moskva, Russia, 125009
Coffeemania has different locations in Moscow. I like their offerings and the vibe. Pictured here is one of their amazing teas. If you are in Moscow, no matter the season, you need to try some tea.
Chistoprudny Blvd, 3, Moskva, Russia, 101000
One of the highlights of my visit to Moscow was taking a leisurely walk along the boulevard ring. Lots of nice restaurants and bars to the either side to stop at, but many locals are just hanging on the benches, drinking beer, listening to music...
Tverskaya St, 3, Moskva, Russia, 125009
O2 Lounge atop the Ritz Carlton has a great view of Red Square. After a day on your feet, it is nice to go up, have a drink and talk about all that you experienced during the day and planning your night’s activities.
Tverskoy Boulevard, 26А, Moskva, Russia, 125009
Chef Andrey Makhov of Cafe Pushkin recently contributed to AFAR, and opened his second location in New York. But if you are in Moscow, you will want to check the original out. Open 24 hours, with a great vibe. You may want to ask for Dmitri, a...

Red Square, Moskva, Russia, 109012
I walked around Moscow for a day, shielding my eyes from what, in my opinion, is the most beautiful building in the world, St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow. I didn't want to see even a glimpse of it out of the corner of my eye until I could enjoy...
Lodochnaya Ulitsa, 4, Moskva, Russia, 125362
Jet-lag be damned! After being whisked in from the Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport, our hosts Oleg and Sergei took us to the Uzbekistanian restaurant Chaikhona No. 1, an otherworldly choice located within the city’s Gorky Park. Although apparently a...
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...
Johri Bazar, Gangori Bazar, Pink City, Jaipur, Rajasthan 302003, India
Johri is Hindi for jeweler, and you’ll find plenty of examples at this Indian bazaar. Rajasthani brides visit before their big day for the Crayola spectrum of saris. Pick up impossibly soft pashminas and silver-threaded sandals, too. No wedding...
