When In Russia, Put These Top Things To Do On Your Moscow List


Heading east or want to? Russia should be on the list naturally. For planning purposes, Below are my top 6 things to see and do in Moscow.

1. Lenin’s Mausoleum

Get to see the man himself in his Mausoleum in Red Square! Lenin – the revolutionary leader is here in this very obvious building. It is only open early in the morning, and it closes twice a week and note: you cannot take cameras, videos etc. in with you.

2. Gorky Park

I found myself singing the lines “follow the Moskva down to Gorky Park, listening to the Wind of Change” when I was traveling Moscow. Gorky Park is a massive central park which is not only famous politically and historically, but the park has been a notable inclusion in a few films and was once an amusement park. It’s also extremely nice for a leisurely walk on a mild day!

3. The Kremlin

Inside its walls are a load of palaces and 5 cathedrals and some striking domes.  Take a tour and go back in history to another time.

4. Arbat Street

A great quirky street with markets, cobbled stones, bars, restaurants. Go for beer and vodka with locals after hours.

5. Stalin’s 7 Towers

These tall towers built by Stalin are the trademark of Eastern Europe and Communist Russia. I have also seen his towers in Warsaw and Minsk. Moscow houses 7 of them, dispersed in different parts of the city.

6. St. Basil’s Cathedral

This Cathedral is typical of Moscow and a must visit. It’s also stunning is it not?
