Last week, I visited one of the biggest, most beautiful and diverse cities in Russia – Moscow. As you might already know from my blog post about Kaliningrad, I am not the biggest fan of Russia, but my experience in Moscow did really change my mind. 

Firstly, the city is absolutely stunning. It has a lot of different areas with nice restaurants – big and small, cheap and expensive; parks, where people can relax, walk around, and do all kinds of sport; nightclubs for all types of people – techno lovers, hip-hop fans and many others. The dynamics of the city is just the way I love it – fast, always moving and never being stuck on one place for ages. 

Secondly, people’s mentality is completely amazing! In the hometown blog post, I was complaining about the mentality of people living there and I made a mistake of stereotyping and saying that all Russian people are the same. Well, now I would love to break this stereotype, because people living in Moscow are so different. 

Firstly, they are more open minded. I guess, that is because the city is so big and there are a lot of different nationalities living there. 

Secondly, people seem to be more friendly there and they are always trying to achieve something rather than complaining about how horrible their life is. Overall, “Moscow people” left a very good impression on me. 

Now, let’s get specific. I would love to share with you a couple of places that are worth visiting if you are ever in Moscow. 

Of course, I would love to start my list with The Red Square. Even though, The Red Square is almost always very crowded with locals and tourists, it is so worth of visiting. You will be able to enjoy little cafes near the area, where you can buy hot drinks during winter to warm you up and refreshing lemonades during hot summers. Also, there are a couple of malls, which are completely amazing and diverse. You can find there all kinds of shops – make up stores, all luxury boutiques and average priced Zara, Bershka and H&M. Basically, go to The Red Square and start walking, because the whole area is just worth seeing and experiencing. 

The second place is “Tverskaya Street”. I highly recommend this place for shopaholics and food lovers. “Tverskaya street” is located not very far from The Red Square and it has all those famous boutiques such as Christian Louboutin, Gucci, Phillip Plein and many many others. If you are a foodie like me, you will also absolutely love this street, because it has a lot of different restaurants for all tastes and price ranges – Chinese, Taiwanese, Japanese, traditional Russian, basically you get the idea, the list is very long. 

Moscow is very huge, so you should understand that there are a lot more beautiful places, which I haven’t highlighted here. I possible could not, because the list is countless. Please, if you ever have the opportunity to go to Moscow, do go! You won’t regret it. 

When was the last time you have travelled? What was the last place you have visited?

    Nothing like a well placed pic of a Louboutin boutique. That so rocks! Last place we went on vacay was USVI & BVI. We’re heartbroken over the devastation to our fave spots on earth. xoxo

    I have been to Sankt Petersburg and to be honest, I didn’t really like the atmosphere there. I felt so dangered and confused .. Definitely should give a chance to Moscow as well 🙂 The last time I visited Italy – Rome, Firenze, Pisa, Venice, San Marino – loved these places!

    This post really makes me want to go to Russia. I did have doubts about going there, as many Russians that I have met were truly unfriendly and miserable. Also, the language issues did cause some problems, but your post sounds like it’s definitely a place to go. Thanks for that!

  8. October 2, 2017 / 2:26 pm

    I’m so glad you had such an amazing trip and one that had such a deep impact on you! It sounds like it has a little something just right for every indivual! On my travel wish-list Moscow goes!

    Nice to see posts on this hugely underrated city. It pales in comparison to St Petersburg, but on a holiday it can surely hold its own. Love Moscow!

    Moscow sounds like a fun place! I’m glad you were able to challenge and change your views of the people! That’s always a good thing when you can realize you might be wrong about a people or a place!

    Omg, I’ve never been to Moscow, but I definitely want to visit. Such a beautiful city. Can’t wait.

    What a great account of Moscow. I’ve never really thought to visit but I’ve heard everyone say that it’s a great city!

    I have never been to this place. Looks very interesting with the beautiful design house. Some friends told them they found the place a bit noisy, not be quiet in the fresh. But I still want to go there to visit and have beautiful pictures.

  17. October 3, 2017 / 6:38 pm

    The closest I’ve been to it is Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. I loved all three and imagine Moscow would have a much similar vibe just bigger city.

    Moscow sounds like a really fun place. But the security have been so bad recently (everywhere) that it is actually quite unsafe to travel anywhere. I hope the world will become safer soon~

    I like the sound of “Tverskaya Street” and it is great that it is not located too far from red square. I am a foodie so I like that it is good for foodies x

    It sounds like a great place to visit and to explore. I will definitely put this on my travel list.

  22. October 5, 2017 / 8:01 pm

    Never thought of Moscow for a holiday destination, some pals of mine have been and said it’s very diverse and there’s so much to do. Maybe I will visit one day <3 x

    I cannot wait to travel Moscow. To answer your questions, last place I travelled was Indonesia which was great and unique on this own way. But Moscow is something I am looking forward to now

  24. October 6, 2017 / 1:47 pm

    One word elegant. Your post makes me visit Moscow.

  25. October 6, 2017 / 4:06 pm

    Moscow is always on my bucket list. It has diverse culture and huge place to explore. The closet place to Russia I visited is Cacucasus mountains of Kazbegi.
