Planning Your Visit

  • How many days do I need in Moscow?

    Three days is enough time to take in all the sights, but you can certainly add an extra day to enjoy a little more leisure time.

  • How to get to Moscow

    Domodedovo Airport is the main gateway to and from the city. Most visitors to Russia will need a tourist visa, so check well before you travel.

  • What's in a Moscow Mule?

    This classic cocktail, containing vodka and ginger beer, was actually invented in California, not Moscow, so tourists looking for an authentic version will be searching for some time. But in Russia, drinking vodka is somewhat of a national pastime, so the city offers plenty of chi chi cocktail bars and nightclubs where you can get a true local's experience: great vodka, over ice.
