Although it may seem counter-intuitive with winter’s grasp still strong, now is the best time to visit Russia. As the European gateway to Asia, Moscow is a fusion of old and new – the fortified and unmatched Kremlin Palace on the banks of the Moskva River, while modern day cars whiz by, carving through the buildings and making their way to their destinations.
Don’t let Napoleon’s mistakes fool you – a siege on Russia in the springtime is a move you will not regret. The Russian people have proved time and time again that their resilience and old-world views will always have them come out on top, and because of this, they are exceptional hosts.
History and Sightseeing
Given all that the land of Russia has experienced, you can very well imagine that Moscow has a distinguished history behind it. If you want to get the most out of your trip, sightseeing tours are the name of the game.
From the Kremlin Palace and the Moskva, to the State Historical Museum and St. Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin’s Mausoleum to the Tretyakov Gallery, home of The Vladimir Virgin, visitors are in for the learning opportunities of their lives.
Are you one of those people who get hungry in the middle of the night, fretting because the only available food options make your stomach quiver? Fear not: in Moscow almost every restaurant is open 24-hours a day. Therefore, if worrying that you wouldn’t be able to visit Moscow because of your random food cravings at 4 AM, worry no more and book away.
The types of meals offered in Russia are as vast as its borders – there is a heavy influence of poultry, fish, meat and, of course, soups to keep you warm on frigid nights. During the earlier centuries, a great deal of influence came from the rest of Europe, merging with the Russian staples to combine into a delicious outcome.
In terms of drinks, Russians are not only known for their vodka (and the immense flavorings offered) but also their beer. Brewed as far back as the 9th century, there is no doubt you or your client will find that perfect lager to brag about to everyone back home.
