Moscow is a great city for sightseeing, but we strongly recommend to not limit yourself to all the main sights listed below. Once you've seen the Kremlin, Red Square and a couple of more places, do something unusual. Take a train to south-east Moscow to Vykhino station to see the typical Russian suburbs or try to get to some shady cheap bar on a side-street – only this way your sightseeing experience will be fully fulfilled. Here we list the best of the both worlds :)
Sometimes we hear and see so many striking, odd and new things about Russia on TV or in newspapers or from the people we meet, that I think I'm missing something! Really, it turns out I live at such a dangerous place, which is ruled by authoritarian regime, flooded with mafiosi, catastrophes, bombings happening all the time, with deadly cold winters, demolished economy, depressed people.
