From the Red Square to the Bolshoi Theater, Moscow has much to offer travellers. Tourists booking flights to Moscow are headed right into Russia’s leading financial and cultural centre. But don’t let this massive capital city scare you – there’s more heart and soul in Moscow than most people know.
Once you step off your Moscow flight, your first stop should be the Kremlin. This walled city includes four palaces, four cathedrals, and serves as the official residence to the President of Russia. Next to the Kremlin is the Red Square, most famously used for parades and demonstrations. First time travellers on flights to Moscow will likely recognize the colorful domes on top of Saint Basil’s Cathedral, situated inside the Kremlin. If shopping is your bag, find a cheap flight to Moscow and save your money for Gorky Street (today known as Tverskaya Street) – the most expensive shopping street in Moscow. For the arts and entertainment aficionado, no trip to Moscow is complete without a stop at the Bolshoi or Maly theatres. Book flights to Moscow in the winter and get tickets to one of the most amazing spectacles on stage, the Moscow Ballet’s production of “The Nutcracker.”
Thanks to a new government and a more modern lifestyle, Moscow flights are packed with visitors year round.
