    Museums

    There is so much to see in Moscow’s museums that we think you might need to set aside a ‘museum day’ – Kremlin museums, State Historical Museum, Pushkin State Museum…

    Art Galleries

    The art landscape in Moscow has changed beyond recognition in the past few years. The state museums are still as magnificent as ever –nobody should miss the Tretyakov Gallery – but it is the contemporary art scene that has Moscow buzzing, with Red October, Winzavod Centre, Garage Centre for Contemporary Culture, and all of them run by beautiful, clever women!

  • Bolshoi Theatre

    Theatres and Concert Halls

    The Bolshoii, of course, needs no introduction, but how about the MKHAT, Olympiskiy and Kremlin concert halls? Our concierge has all the exciting details.

    Shopping

    The shopping is so good in Moscow that we suggest you pack lightly! Or bring an empty extra suitcase… There is up-market GUM and TSUM, and then there are the bargain flea markets.

    Moscow is home to FC CSKA (winners of the UEFA Cup in 2004/5), and in the summer months the city boasts first-class yachting, golf and tennis.
