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...

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.

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...

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.

When visiting Moscow, one has to go to Red Square and the place that most stands out from a distance is St. Basil's Cathedral.

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...

Zamoskvorechye District, Moscow, Russia
Some of Moscow's subway stations are to be found in guide books. No wonder. In some of them you feel like inside a museum or palace.

There are several large markets in Moscow and at many of them, you can get a very special type of souvenir - old posters from the soviet era. Get them for cheap at the source! You can also get these furry hats, but that's not quite as cool, though...

Book a late dinner in order to see both the sunset and nightlife aspects of White Rabbit, which offers panoramic Moscow views with excellent food . Be sure to end the night soaking up your surroundings with a hookah!

An unforgetable evening at one of the premier ballet houses in the world. If you are into ballet and art in general this is a must while in Moscow.

The Kremlin, an old Moscow standby, is an old, old fortress. Within it's walls, I was surprised to find among its communist, star-studded, structures, the old monastery and churches where the Orthodoxy and tsars walked. Sunlight lit up these...

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...

There are some things a Westerner should do while visiting Moscow. Listening to the choir on a Sunday morning in this small Orthodox church in Red Square called the Kazan Cathedral is one of them.

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...

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...
