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.

Organic cuisine, and everything fresh Editors' Note

Ruth Tal’s Fresh Restaurants opened their first Moscow branch in 2012, under the same name: Fresh. This quickly became a local favorite, the go-to eatery for fresh vegetarian burgers, salads, noodles, and healthy nonalcoholic cocktails.

Fresh’s stunning interior was designed by Olga and Irina Sundukova. Minimalist, yet warm, the room reminds of the Russian countryside. The walls are covered by a vertical garden, to inspire closeness to nature.
