Moscow’s marvellous museums

Moscow is the place to be if you want to learn more about Russia’s engrossing, and sometimes turbulent, past. The absolute must-see is the Kremlin, home to thousands of treasures from Russia’s history, including a fantastic armoury with traditional royal armour, swords and cannons.

For a glimpse into more recent events, head to the Bunker 42 Cold War Museum, an underground Cold War-era bunker. If art is more your thing, head to the State Tretyakov Gallery, with its vast collection of pre-Soviet fine art or the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, which has a pan-European collection.

In recent years, Moscow’s cuisine has become increasingly innovative with chefs seeking out the freshest local ingredients and reinventing Russian classics for the modern palate.

Sample borscht soup, which has origins in Ukraine, and look out for blinis – traditional pancakes served either with fruit and cream, or meat and cheese. For excellent street food and international flavours, head to Danilovsky Market, where you’ll find stalls serving treats from around the world.

Relax in Gorky Park

Gorky Park, alongside the Moskva River, is where the locals go when they want some fresh air and relaxation. It was built in 1928 by the Soviet Government as a place for the people of Moscow to socialise.

Once home to fairground rides and a mass of pavement cafes, in 2011 the park was revamped. New areas were created for sports including beach volleyball, petanque and yoga. In summer, there’s an open-air cinema, while in winter you can lace up your skates on the outdoor ice rink. You can even skate around the park, as the paths are flooded and frozen in winter.
