A city of great contradictions, a central performer in empires under the command of steely Czars, the resting ground of communism’s passionate father and the present day capital city of the Russian Federation, Moscow is nothing short of powerfully extraordinary. Architecturally, the city has been restored and re-envisioned many times over, with its most ancient buildings gone long ago in fire. Among the most populated metro areas worldwide, Moscow has a total of 17 million inhabitants, earning it the status of a true megacity. Located on the banks of the Moskva River, the city spreads out from the Kremlin and Red Square at its heart in a series of concentric roads which subdivide the city, if not so neatly. Begin your city-break with airBaltic whose flights to Moscow land at Sheremetyevo or Vnukovo airports, depending on the flight you choose. Transport between the airports and Moscow city centre is well developed, you won't face any trouble.
Russian is the official language of Moscow and is written in the Cyrillic alphabet, which tends to cause difficulty for most westerners used to the Latin alphabet. Learning the pronunciation can be somewhat tedious as well, as there are a number of hardening and softening letters in Russian, making for some tongue-twisting new sounds in the mouth of a foreigner. Do learn the Cyrillic alphabet before you travel, as many words will have an understandable meaning in English. And although it is becoming slightly more popular, English is still a rarity in Moscow and locals may have trouble helping you. Check out some of the English language newspapers upon arrival to get an idea of what’s happening. Some are The Moscow Times, Moscow News and Element.
