If you’re planning a trip to Moscow, either to shop for your wedding dress, as a stop on your way to the Winter 2014 Olympics, or for your next vacation, here are some of our picks for what to do while in town:
Before you arrive make sure you have a reservation at Café PUSHKIN. Launched in 1999 in a baroque mansion, the restaurant was soon added to Europe’s Top25 restaurant list, and became popular with A-listers, including Jack Nicholson, Quentin Tarantino, Angelina Jolie, and Will Smith. If you’re in the mood for drinks, be sure to order the Cuve Karsov (Russian white wine) to complement your meal.
Inside the city’s most prestigious department store, GUM, is where you’ll find Stolovaya No. 57, the perfect place to break for lunch. The menu features classic Russian cuisine including: selyodka pod shuboi (pickled herring and beetroot), buckwheat with mushrooms, and a wide variety of pies and buns, Olivier salad, and compote for dessert.
To get around the city, skip the taxi and take the Metro. Moscow boasts one of the most impressive underground transportation systems in the world. The extravagant architecture includes stations constructed as luxurious "palaces for the people," with bas-reliefs, friezes, marble and bronze statues, stained-glass windows and countless mosaics made with glass, marble and granite. And no two stations are alike!
