Flights to Moscow
In recent years, Moscow has undergone huge changes. This sprawling, vibrant metropolis is home to over 10 million people and packed with places of culture, along with restaurants, bars, night clubs, and shopping outlets. It is a bold, vibrant city, with a bustling metro, heavy traffic and endless queuing that makes for a fast-paced city vibe.
Moscow has always had a rich history of arts and culture. Performances at the Arts Theatre or a ballet at the Bolshoi are well known events for visitors to enjoy, but there is a new thriving arts scene, with pop-up galleries and creative hubs. The city is just as busy at night with a vast, eclectic choice of clubs and cafés, from retro-chic to cool cosmopolitan.
Despite this recent advancement into modern culture, guests to the city are offered a long look into the past. Memories of the Soviet state are found all over the city, with the Red Square and the Kremlin continuing to attract a stream of visitors who want to experience this era of history. The VDNK, a socialist fantasy exhibition, displays the economic achievements of that time. Moscow offers more than just history, and modern Muscovite living is epitomised in the former Red October chocolate factory, which attracts a new generation of cool Russians. The building has been converted into a trendy area, housing the latest in bars, art galleries and contemporary restaurants.
The city hosts many events during the year. Residents get into the winter spirit by taking part in the Russian Winter Festival, featuring sleigh rides, ice sculpting and other events. During the summer, festivals and concerts take place throughout the city. The Synthetic Sound Festival, one of Russia's largest open air festivals, is held in June.
