Got your plane ticket printed out and your bags ready to go? Read on for a few basic Moscow tips before you set your foot out the door.
Moscow is the national capital city of Russia and is located 110 miles (177 kilometers) to the northwest of the prominent city of Ryazan.
It shouldn't be too hard to make some new buddies in this corner of Moscow Oblast. It boasts a population of around 10,400,000 locals.
Iconic attractions can look remarkable online, but there's nothing better than observing them with your own eyes. When you're in Moscow, make sure you visit Red Square and St. Basil's Cathedral — they'll definitely bowl you over!
Experience the unique culture of this city by exploring places like the Moscow State University and the Bolshoi Theatre. If you've got a little more time up your sleeve, Cathedral of Christ the Savior and the State Historical Museum are worth visiting too.
You don't need to know your Michelangelos from your Boticellis to enjoy an outing to Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts. It boasts an excellent collection of works that'll engage your interest and see your imagination run wild. Like some more options? Monuments built to honor the dead are often both striking and sobering. Stop a while at Lenin's Mausoleum for some quiet reflection. But that's not all there is. The transformation of the modern military has had a massive impact on the world we live in today. Visit Kremlin Armoury Museum to better appreciate great battles of the past.
Plug in your headphones and watch a couple of in-flight movies. In no time at all, you'll touch down at Vnukovo International Airport (VKO). It's about 16 miles (26 kilometers) to the southwest from the middle of Moscow.
