Moscow is a city of contrasts, where the bohemian and the glamorous merge in an idiosyncratic fusion - do not be surprised to find a golden-domed 16th century church next to an ultra-modern glass skyscraper. Here, salty fish eggs (caviar) are washed down with bubbly champagne and worn-out commuters travel by the elaborately decorated, elegant metro - one of the city's main attractions.

Popular Shopping Streets

Popular shopping streets are Noviy Arbat and the more exclusive Kuznetskiy, but the number one shopping street is Tverskaya ulitsa. Stalin had the street restored in the 1930’s, so here, too, there is evidence of his liking for massive, grey buildings.

Vnukovo International Airport

The city's third and most compact airport, Vnukovo is located approximately 28 kilometers southwest of the city center. The air hub is best reached by Aeroexpress trains departing from the Kievskaya Railway Station. Several mini-buses also run here from Yugo-Zapadnaya metro station (south end of the red line).
