Age Range:
25-30

Customer Travel Tip: Always have with you a map of the metro, also is really useful to learn at least to read the Cyrillic characters due most of the street and metro signs are only in Russian. Try to buy a Russian SIM card, they´re cheap and useful. Download the taxi app (Yandex taxi or Gett), both really are lifesavers.

Liked: A lot of sight seeings and once you manage to use properly the transportation system you realize that the city is extremely well connected. There´s no need to take taxis, only if you get tired of walking.

Disliked: Without knowing the basics of the Russian language is a bit hard to navigate.

Liked: The style of buildings in Moscow is awesome.Not only some gorgeous buildings around the Red square but also a lot of shoppingmalls, hotels, universities, temples, and others are really spectacular. Among all I love the Red square most.When I first got to the Red square I trembled with a magnificent sight. People here are so kind that the fact some people helped me to go somewhere and place an order in a restaurant is literally unforgettable.

Customer Travel Tip: Don't miss the parks. They are the best part.

Liked: Beautiful, fulfilled all my expectations

Disliked: That not all places/street signs have latin alphabet as it happens in St Petersburg, so it is not tourist friendly. The airport is also messy; immigration is very complex as you don't know how they organise themselves.
