"Welcome to the jungle" Moscow by brazwhazz

Moscow is a place of paradoxes. After four days, we were happy to leave the city for greener pastures, yet we felt we had only seen a tiny fraction of what it had to offer.

Moscow was also a rude introduction to Russia for the independent travellers that we are, as this is where we started our first-ever journey in the country. Because Moscow has no tourist information centre and locals speak little or no English, my decision to take Russian classes before the trip turned out to be a great idea: it allowed us to get around, understand the city's efficient metro system and, of course, share some goofy moments with locals.

The city feels much safer than what travel guides tell you. Just use common sense and let yourself be swept up into Moscow's dizzying array of sights, sounds and smells.
