The capital of modern Russia, Moscow continues to attract visitors from all over the world. Modern western influences sit comfortably alongside traditional architecture and the city stands proudly among the most vibrant in Europe.

Book a flight to Moscow with Qatar Airways and soak up an extraordinary city of contradictions and intrigue.

Moscow highlights

The relics of the Kremlin and Red Square are only the beginning; Moscow’s love of ballet and opera is one you may come to share.

  • Tourist attractions

    A trip to Moscow is a chance to discover some of the world’s most photogenic sites. Head to the iconic Red Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you will find the breathtaking palaces and cathedrals of the Kremlin and Lenin’s Mausoleum, which houses the embalmed body of the leader of Russia’s Communist Revolution. At the square, you will also find what may prove to be the highlight of your trip – the magnificent St Basil’s Cathedral.

    If you want to view the art and culture of Russia, make sure you visit the Tretyakovov Gallery or take in a show at the Bolshoi Theatre. Moscow is a city of symphonies, classical music, theatre and ballet – all of which are living, vital aspects of Russian culture. Also check out the Cherry Orchard Festival and the Russian National Dance Show, which combines classical ballet with traditional Russian folk music and dance.

  • Leisure activities

    It is worth signing up for an English-language guided tour when you travel to Moscow, particularly if your grasp of Russian is a little shaky.

    One of the most popular leisure activities for tourists is a trip to the circus, the oldest of which is the Nikulin Circus. Opera lovers should check out the Novaya Opera, but be aware that most shows are in Russian. A trip to the ballet is another cultural highlight, while ice skating in Gorky Park is a memorable experience.

  • Food

    Moscow has plenty of variety when it comes to cuisine – from American fast-food restaurants to exclusive five-star dining. Check out the international restaurants on Neglinnaya Street for exceptional Indian cuisine in opulent, baroque surroundings, or some of the best Japanese sushi in the city. There are also plenty of restaurants serving traditional Russian food, including cabbage-based soups, pelmeni dumplings and pirozhki.

    The cuisines of other states in the region are also well represented on Moscow’s streets, including that of Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia.

  • Shopping

    Travelling to Moscow is a perfect opportunity for some retail therapy, and its shopping facilities range from independent boutiques to high-end luxury furriers and jewellers. If you’re looking for luxury outlets, head to Petrovka Boulevard, regarded as Moscow’s equivalent of Rodeo Drive. Here you’ll find diamond bangles, full-length sable coats, and exceptional Russian antiques.

    However, if your budget is a little smaller, then Moscow has plenty of markets, malls and boutiques to explore. Popular shopping malls in the city include Okhotny Ryad, Gorod and GUM. For souvenir shopping, try Izmaylovo Market for traditional Russian crafts, particularly wood carvings.
