Flights to Moscow should be on everyone’s wish list. It’s a city with an eventful and, at times, sombre history, yet Muscovites are extremely welcoming and will make you feel right at home. Like many European cities, Russia’s capital city is experiencing a burst of creative energy, evident in all aspects of contemporary culture. Former factories and deserted warehouses are being taken over and converted into edgy art galleries and intriguing underground clubs. It is the home of world-class venues such as the Pushkin Fine Arts Museum and The National Museum of Russian Fine Art, (the State Tretyakov Gallery), which is one of the largest museums in the world. Many of the most interesting landmarks and buildings within Moscow can be found around its famous Red Square and give the city its strong identity and typically Russian character.
After taking a Moscow flight, discover the Kremlin. It’s a vast complex comprised of a group of cathedrals and palaces, along with a superb exhibition of weapons and jewels at the Kremlin Armoury. Also standing proudly on Red Square is another of Moscow's iconic buildings, St. Basil's Cathedral. The brightly coloured architecture will take your breath away, worth taking direct flights to Moscow. Night owls can enjoy a dynamic scene made up of exclusive nightclubs, bohemian art cafés and underground blues bars. It may be a sweeping generalisation, but Muscovites like a drink, vodka preferably. For a more relaxing time, away from the museums, try Big Moscow City, the modern Cinema Centre and the Zoo, where no fewer than 6,000 exotic animals can be found. The combination of culture and creativity, sights and sounds make it an incredible place – return flights to Moscow should be your next holiday purchase.
