For your first stop in Moscow, check out the Kremlin. This site, with its palatial and colourful architecture, is a powerful symbol of Russia's political history, and it dates back centuries. Today the Kremlin is home to multiple museums that offer visitors a chance to learn more about the country's former heads of state. Feel like taking in a performance? Many hotels in Moscow are near one of the world's most storied stages: the Bolshoi Theatre. Book tickets in advance to see the ballet or opera and make sure you pack an outfit to suit such a classy night out. If you're looking for more of a big night on the town, Moscow is renowned for its club scene. The Khamovniki district is known for attracting a younger crowd and its hip nightspots are generally more affordable than those in the city centre.
Use Wotif to find great flights to Moscow that will land at Sheremetyevo International Airport, located about 30 km north of the CBD. If you're looking into car hires (from Wotif, of course!) to get to your Moscow hotel, prepare for traffic heavier than the rush to flee Sydney at the start of the holidays. The metro system is a great alternative if you’d prefer not to drive.
