Wanna roll with the Muscovites on your next getaway? We’re not name-calling; that’s just what Moscow residents are called. Muscovites are proud of their city, and with good reason. Author (and Stalin’s daughter—no big deal) Svetlana Alliluyeva described Moscow as a “smouldering lava of passion, ambition and politics”; add in nonstop nightlife and energy, and you’ve got a pretty good idea of what to expect.
Ready to be dazzled? Book Moscow car rental on Wotif and get going!
You know what you’ll find in the city centre. All the landmarks of the world-famous Red Square, from the Kremlin to the iconic, colourful St. Basil’s Cathedral hang out here. But if you point the wheels of your Moscow car hire north or south, you’ll find tons of not-so-hidden treasures just off the regular tourist path.
To the south, you’ll drive right up to Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure. First, the culture: Take a walk amongst monuments to Soviet idols in Muzeon Park of Arts. Next, the leisure: Take a boat ride, get on the carousel, or just relax with a glass of cabernet severny red wine—or a houka tobacco water pipe, if you’re feeling daring—in a parkside cafe.
Picking up a car rental in Moscow to circle the Golden Ring? No, it’s not a dance or a Lord of the Rings reference. It’s a loop of historic cities starting and ending in Moscow, and there are some unforgettable sights along the way. Experience old-timey dachas (country houses) in Suzdal and the most onion-domed churches of any city in Yaroslavl—for Russia, that’s saying something!
Think you can handle Moscow? Savvy travellers can bundle their hotel and airfares with Wotif’s Moscow holiday packages, then add on their own set of wheels for extra exploration. You’ve heard the joke, “In Soviet Russia, car hire drives you”, but these days, you’re the one in charge.
