Where to go
What to see in Moscow? We offer a special route around the Kremlin - with modern and historical sights.
Public transport
Moscow has three types of urban transport: metro, buses and trams. There, metro stations and surface public transport stops are outfitted with maps that will help you plan your itinerary/route.

● We recommend using the metro during peak hours. This will help you avoid traffic jams and introduce you to the beautiful stations, like Mayakovskaya, Novoslobodskaya and Kievskaya. Like most surface transport, the metro runs from 5.30 to 1.00 a.m.

● Moscow has a well-developed surface transit system. Buses and trams will quickly get you to your destination and let you explore the city along the way. Most of the surface public transport stops are located next to metro stations. Tip: take a ride on the tourist-favourite tram A (also called Annushka after a character from the novel The Master and Margarita by Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov). It will take you through the city centre: from Kaluzhskaya Square to the Chistye Prudy metro station.

● We recommend purchasing a Troika card to pay for public transportation. It is sold at metro stations and can be credited with any amount. With Troika, a single metro, bus or tram trip will cost RUB 42. You can top up your card at RUSSPASS. The metro and most types of surface public transport support contactless bank card payments. In this case, a single trip will cost RUB 46.

● Moscow has a public bike rental service. To use it, register in the Moscow Transport app on App Store or Google Play. You can pay for the service with a bank card in the app or with a Troika card. You can see the map of bike paths here.

● If you need to call a taxi, you can use the Uber app.

Moscow offers everything - from luxurious restaurants to affordable bars. Here are 20 places that we highly recommend.
