Moscow is the political and historical centre of Russia which never ceases to inspire and impress its visitors. This is a city of contrasts where every street has a story to tell about the turbulent Russian history.
The heart of Moscow is the Kremlin, along with the Red Square, which is literally the founding site of the city. Moscow is a home to many beautiful churches with golden domes. The St. Basil’s Cathedral and Cathedral of Christ the Savior are the most recognisable ones. The cultural life in Moscow has always maintained a high level. The magnificent Bolshoy Theatre, Tretyakov Gallery and Pushkin’s Fine Arts Museum should the on the top of your Moscow itinerary.
The Moscow metro network is quite extensive and covers the city with the suburbs. There are 14 lines and most of them run radial from the centre to different parts of the city, except for two circle lines. Each line is identified by number and colour, so you can easily recognise them. Another interesting fact about the Moscow metro is that it looks like an underground museum filled with beautiful mosaics and sculptures.
The bus network in Moscow is mostly used by students and pensioners, while it can get really crowded during rush hours. The tram and trolleybus are also used widely used, as they are a cheap transportation alternative. They rarely run by the schedule and the waiting time is from 5 to 15 minutes. There are no night bus, tram, and trolleybus lines, so taking a Moscow taxi is the only option at night.
Driving in Moscow can be a real challenge. It is really chaotic, so excellent driving skills are required. If you’re up to the task, you can rent a car in Moscow. There are car rental offices at the airports and in the city.
There is an unusual practice in Moscow where every car on the street is a taxi. This means that you can hail any car on the street and they will take you wherever you want for a price. If you’re not feeling safe taking a taxi this way, then you can use an official Russia taxi. The Moscow taxi service has regulated tariff for charging by the meter.
