General impressions, Moscow: 61 reviews and 52 photos

Favorite thing: Well moscow is many things to different people.
For the uncultured like me, i say to people like me, go and see the museums and the art galleries. hey am not joking.
The kremlin armoury museum is unbelievable, and the jewelry part is drop dead fantastic.
Also the tcherkovsky art gallery is worth a look at.
So do not just look at the gentlemans clubs where girls of negotiable affections work.
Spend time visiting red square, and the areas outside.
Also use the metro in preferance to taxis, and learn some russian .
Also go to the market in Izhmailovo,and do some shopping there for fantastic clothes.
Also dont forget to take your passport, and travel documents with you when you go out.
Me and my Russian g/f got stopped outside the kremlin,and the copper laughed when i lost one of my documents ( my G/F pannicked like hell)..He saw i was on a Uk EEC passport, and bought us a coffee.he spoke good English,and we chatted for about 20mins about football.The police have a job to do protecting us from terrorists, dont be offended if you get asked to see your documents

Fondest memory: i have just many fantastic memories of moscow.
From the friendly girls who charge $100 in the hotel bar, at the izhmailovo beta, and who were happy to chat to me and my girlfriend.
To the fantastic sites we have seen all over the city.its just a fantastic place.
The food is fantastic in the restraunts.
For me there is no culture difference to England,and i would say that it is more like England than any other country in Europe

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
