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.

Stay.com Editors' Note

One of Russia’s most famous restaurants, Babel is one of those places where the cliche is expected, welcome, and never forgotten. This is Odessa cuisine, atmosphere, and essence carefully exhibited in a fine dining establishment in the city center.

Situated on a side street in between the Garden ring and the Smolenskaya embankment, Babel’s strikingly different architectural design betrays the uniqueness of cuisine held in its interior. Brand-chef Alain Komar offers up a complex menu of traditional Odessa classics. Reservations are a must.
