Though the communist leanings are still present in the elder population, the youth generation of Moscow is liberal, modern, and highly fashionable. This capital city has been in the foreground of many changes, and continues to hold a place as the crown jewel of Russia. The city is geographically defined by “Ring Roads” circling the city. Originating in the Center (Red Square and the Kremlin) they work their way out to the suburbs. Much of the tourist life is found in the first few rings. The heart of the city and the focus of your historical visit should be Red Square, the first and innermost ring. The Kremlin and St. Basil’s Cathedral are the two most famous buildings in the city, and they sit adjacent to each other in the square. Tripology travel agents can get you group tickets to the Kremlin in addition to group airfare and accommodations. Taking care of the small stuff like museum tickets and meal reservations is just one more way that we take the stress out of your group vacation planning.
Visit a Russian bathhouse (banya). Known for their saunas and steam rooms, you can spend hours relaxing; swapping between hot spa rooms and frigid plunge pools. Once nighttime comes, be sure to enjoy everything that Moscow has to offer. Check out the Boar’s Head, a great disco that’s not too expensive. Keep in mind that the clubs get nicer as you get closer to the Kremlin, but as the venue gets chicer, the prices go higher. For a truly posh experience, try Gogol’ Bar.
While in Russia, take a day trip to St. Petersburg. The 7-hour overnight train saves your travel group money on living accommodations, and allows you to take in another city on your trip. Tripology agents expert in Russian travel can help you to book a first-class sleeper cabin for your group. And if you get a hankering for a good American meal, the Starlight Diner is open 24 hours and offers great food and cheap prices.
