Rich traditions, mesmerizing sights

Although it is the largest city in Europe, Russia’s capital is best explored on foot and through its metro maze. Moscow boasts of impressive architecture, art galleries, museums, churches and cathedrals, and numerous parks and gardens. It’s a great place to go ice skating in the winter, or to experience the banya therapy (hot steam bath, followed by a whipping with birch branches) that made the Russian bath houses famous. Two circuses, a puppet theater, water parks, and many other attractions make Moscow ideal for a family trip as well.

Probably the best borscht I’ve even had, the Russian food is impeccable and staff are well trained and discreet. The upstairs ‘library’ area is beautiful, its quite a decadent experience. The business lunch is quite reasonable and a great special occasion restaurant.

This restaurant is classic and expensive, but the food is extremely good quality! This is where most tourists come for typical Russian food.
