Where to stay in Moscow:


Moscow is a very hospitable city with various accommodation options enabling each visitor to choose the most appropriate type. In Moscow you may choose from luxury hotels, reasonably priced hotels, family-friendly hotels, hostels and even apartments for rent. As of the best accommodation area, it's better to stay anywhere within walking distance to the Red Square and the Kremlin (for example, near Pushkinskaya/Tverskaya/Chekhovskaya metro stations), as these are tourist friendly areas and have lots of restaurants, some with English menus. Any area inside the Garden Ring (Sadovoye Koltso) is a good place to stay as well, because it has easy access to public transport, which is the best way to get around and to visit more remote sights conveniently.

Nowadays, Moscow metro system has 196 stations and it runs daily from 6am to 1am. Up to 1955, metro stations were built from individual projects, each different from the other, but they all looked like palaces with their reflective marble walls, high ceilings and grandiose chandeliers. Later, between 1955 and 1970 mostly functional aspects prevailed.

The safest and most reliable way to get a taxi is to request an official taxi by phone or book it online. After booking it, the dispatcher usually rings you back within a few minutes to provide a description of the car and its licence number. Taxi cabs are relatively affordable, but unfortunately most taxi drivers and dispatchers do not speak English.


    Fares to and from airports have fixed prices. It is better to check in advance if the taxi accepts payment via credit card or cash only (Rubles).
