Moscow Mini Guide
Moscow is a large city and Russia’s capital is most famous for its iconic Red Square and the Kremlin. Steeped in the history of the tsars and then communism, Moscow is a fascinating city to visit. Don’t leave without looking at Lenin’s Mausoleum and St Basil Cathedral in Red Square. Other awe inspiring sights include the Christ the Saviour Cathedral which is the largest Orthodox Christian Church in the world. More than 13 million people live here and Moscow, which was built on the banks of the Moskva River, is the financial and political capital of Russia.
Staying in Moscow is also a wonderful cultural experience and you must visit places such as the Tretyakov Gallery, the Pushkin Museum and the world famous Bolshoi theatre. To get to Moscow there are a number of airports you can use but enquire first about visas as requirements are strict. You will either fly into the small Bykovo Airport (domestic flights only), Domodedovo International Airport
(has flights from large recognised carriers like British Airways and Lufthansa), Sheremetyevo International Airport (the home of Aeroflot dealing mostly with domestic flights and trips to Belarus
), or Vnukovo International Airport
(to the south west of Moscow city centre). These latter three airports are all being greatly expanded over the next few years to keep Moscow’s position as the premier transport hub for Russia.
Car hire with Rhino is available at all of these airports and is the safest and cheapest way to continue your journey into Russia. Taxis can be an expensive risk - Moscow is notoriously pricey. It is possible get to Moscow from one of its neighbouring countries by car with the E30 road taking you there from Poland
. If you are coming from Finland
or the city of St Petersburg
you will take the E18 road.
Making your way through and around Moscow you are likely to use the numerous ring roads which have been built at the city’s periphery. The main Moscow ring road is a bit like the Peripherique in Paris
or the M25 in London
. Driving in the city centre itself is not for the feint hearted and you may wish to park up at your accommodation and take public transport. Locals have little respect for the road rules and the Russia traffic police have little respect for the law.
