Life in Moscow

Moscow is a city with a rich history to be explored. There are reminders of Soviet days and also a vibrant arts scene in the city, with some fantastic museums to visit. From an architectural standpoint, the city is a mesh of truly impressive buildings, old-style soviet apartment blocks, wide streets and underground walkways. The Moscow River winds its way through the urban landscape providing the most spectacular views.


Moscow is similar to many other major cities, particularly in Europe. Additionally, it has a real edge and clear cultural identity that is less evident in other places close to the UK. It also has the advantage of being less than a four-hour flight from London.

Moscow is a very safe city. By taking normal precautions, your stay will be a safe and memorable one. Moscow also has a firmly established expatriate community with cultures represented from all over the world. 

The city offers all the shopping and dining options you would expect to find in a major European city, with a fantastic array of cultural events and tourist sites on offer. Cultural events and concerts can be enjoyed at a much lower cost than many European cities. 

As you might expect, the winter months in Moscow are very cold and snowy. This brings with it the opportunity to get involved in a variety of winter sports and activities as well as take in some stunning scenery. Fortunately, heating here works extremely well, so there is always a place to get warm. The spring and summer months on the other hand are especially pleasant and lively. The city transforms and parks become hubs of outdoor sporting and creative activity.

There are a number of flea markets, museums, parks and art galleries and lots of cultural shows, including opera or ballet, all at very reasonable prices. You can also explore the amazing forests and nature that surrounds the city or even travel to other locations in Russia such as St. Petersburg, which is only one hour away by plane.
