Sightseeing in Moscow  


Welcome to Moscow's up-to-date and independent guide.  Our guide to Moscow was started by a small group of young local Russians and expatriates who were disappointed that there was no truly independent, in-depth guide to Moscow available on the internet. Much of the information you find here you will not find anywhere else. All of our editors live in Moscow (unlike those other online guides who have editors who live in Great Britain or the United States and visit Moscow once every three years to update!).  Thus the material in our guide is fresh and up to date. And very important, as we are not-for-profit, our advice is not skewed toward advertisers.


Please explore our guide, feel free to contact us and ask us advice on your upcoming trip and share this guide with your friends if you find it useful.
