Moscow

Moscow

Moscow is home to some of the most famous architecture in the world. Fly with Austrian Airlines to Moscow to see it for yourself and experience the outstanding Russian arts and culture. Your first stop must surely be Red Square. Each way you turn, to the "onion" domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral, to the adjacent Kremlin and its walls, to Lenin’s Mausoleum, the view will take your breath away. Did you know that Red Square became a cemetery in 1917? Tombs are beneath the mighty Kremlin wall and, since 1925, more than 100 people have been buried within the wall itself. Moscow also has some 70 theaters dedicated to opera, dance, and other performing arts. The city's museums stretch across natural history, science and technology, the arts, and biographical and historical collections. It is truly a city on a grand scale.

Elki Palki

Are you familiar with Austrian Landzeit motorway restaurants? There, waitresses wear Dirndls and the furniture looks like stolen from a farmhouse room. And if that's not enough for you, you can buy Mozartkugeln at the shop. That's how the Elki Palki is, albeit Russian.   And so much Russian that you start wondering whether this is still authentic. Also here the waitresses wear traditional costumes and are rather reserved as is the style of the house. Also here guests eat in a traditionally Russian ambience, i.e. amidst heavy wooden beams, wooden stools and bearskins. All that has the charm of a last-century Russian farmhouse room. And so has the buffet that is served on an ancient wooden carriage.   Russian fish, vegetables and cakes right from the oven are appetizingly displayed in ancient wooden bowls, in clay pots and on top of straw; garlic and onions hang down from a tree. In general, the food looks so delicious that you can hardly resist it - but don't worry: the food is as good as its presentation promises. Whether it is genuine is another story.

DoDo

In former times she used to dine at restaurants in order to write reviews and evaluate the dishes afterwards. Today Svetlana Kessoyan runs her own restaurant. She knows, how to do it and therefore opened the DoDo in Moscow.   Together with chef Alexi Kim, Kessoyan particularly pays attention to a varying menu. At DoDo on Petrovka Street, 15 minutes away from the Red Square, you don't order a regular Ceasar's Salad. Instead you'll find a salad with tuna and avocado or duck breast on the menu. You can also order beef steak and on Wednesdays and Saturdays you'll be served fresh fish. Throughout the whole day the former food critic serves the Russians' most popular breakfast pancakes, blinis and omelettes.   The DoDo fans come in flocks and sit on the spacious terrace that is adorned with flowers. And in five minutes they are back in the city centre again, at the Bolshoi theatre or the department store TSUM. There's simply nothing to complain about the DoDo.

Starlite Dinner

As always, a good idea starts with the wish for a change. This time, a couple of guys getting together for a beer got annoyed about Moscow's deficiency in decent breakfasts - let alone decent burgers. That was 15 years ago. Today, Starlite Dinner is a Russian institution with four spin-offs and American background.   The interior design was imported from Florida, the posters from Hollywood and the meals are as American as ketchup. Where 20 years ago one had to listen to forbidden jazz records under one's bedcover, the star-spangled banner is greeting you today.   The restaurant is almost more American than a diner over there: red and white striped leather sofas, a jukebox and serviettes from a metal box conjure up the American dream, getting guests in the mood for a Cordon Bleu Burger, a Cowboy Burger or the Really Big Shawn Burger - for all those that are truly hungry. Breakfast is a real highlight: At a Starlite Diner you can enjoy your waffles 24 hours a day on seven days a week - only Fonzie is missing, serving the titbits.

Artel Hotel

The dream of every graffiti artist: The Artel subscribes to graffiti, neglecting old traditions. Already at the front desk you get a feeling for the hotel's spirit: Bricks and a slogan sprayed casually onto the wall welcome the guests.   The hallways are laid out colourfully and there's modern art on the walls. But is the room as great as the hallway promises? If you have booked a design room you won't be disappointed: There's graffiti art on the walls and the small rooms boast fancy interior. While the room is kind of small (20 square metres), you sleep amidst Argentine spray art, something in between comics and religion, psychedelic dreams and folklore.   Other rooms are more Expressionist; even Andy Warhol served as inspiration for the art on the walls. In all the rooms you feel like checking in a fancy club - and that's not so far-fetched as the hotel houses a trendy bar featuring Russian underground live music on three evenings a week. And what about a good night's sleep? Well, you can still go down to the restaurant and have some vodka with your meal - then you'll be able to sleep for sure. Double room from 120 euros per night.

Ararat Park Hyatt

Let's talk business: The Ararat Park Hyatt is the dream hotel for all those big on business. The location alone makes top managers' hearts leap. The hotel is located in the centre of the business district, close to the Kremlin and the Parliament. The clientele is thus defined, the rooms accordingly furnished with large desks. Apart from them, there's nothing that will distract you from your job.   The rooms are large but dominated in office colours: brown and beige. Only the bathrooms are slightly more impressive. Some boast Italian marble, all of them Blaise-Mautin toiletries. There's underfloor heating and there are walk-in showers. Who wants to work at a desk then? Three telephones get you back to reality - time to turn on the W-Lan and to take a look at the morning paper.   If that's a shock for you, you can hold a meeting with colleagues at your own living room, or stage an emergency meeting at the conference room. And if all of you are once again working round the clock, I recommend the Presidential Suite. 227 square metres offer ample space for you and your staff. Whoever still has energy left works out at the hotel-owned fitness centre or relaxes over Armenian specialties at the hotel's restaurant. Have fun with your job! Double room from approx. 615 euros per night.

Kempinski Moskau

Luxury hotels represent a multitude of lifestyles and living spheres. One version is a modern, contemporary design paired with vintage. Another one is traditional luxury with precious materials and the flair of bygone times. That's what Kempinski in Moscow represents. And rightly so. After all, Kempinski, founded in 1897, is the oldest luxury hotel group in Europe.   The Nikol'skaya welcomes its guests after six years of renovation in several buildings around the corner of Nikol'skaya Street and the Lubyanka square. In the style of the Belle Époque: opulently adorned with marble and dark oak wood, red velvet and beige wallpapers, golden décor and crystal chandeliers. Already in the lobby the hotel alludes to the times of ocean steamers, when people clad in pearls and fur sipped champagne from crystal flutes. But you can still do so - in the Kempinski lobby, lounging on art déco furniture under a colourful glass cone. That's good old luxury, redefined!

SIGHTS in Moscow

Red Square

The Red Square doesn't deserve its name having been white once. But what's its real name? The Red Square (Krasnaia Ploshchad) has a plurivalent name meaning both red and beautiful in Russian. It is red because the former market place was not only the venue of chicken slaughter. Ivan the Terrible and Peter the Great have executed hundreds of their enemies here.   It is red also because Lenin lies buried here and because in Soviet times the Red Square was the venue of regular propaganda events. Stalin had workers, farmers, tanks and soldiers line up here to demonstrate his power. Today, the square is less red but the more beautiful. You have to take a day's time to visit all the magnificent buildings on the Red Square. You are spoilt for choice: Lenin Mausoleum, Kremlin, Saint Basil's Cathedral or shopping at the exclusive GUM department store. In whatever direction you turn and wherever you take a picture, it will in any case depict an architectural masterpiece. But you are not alone, of course. Where once heavy boots marched in step millions of tourists in flip-flops stroll around today. But still you've got to see it: the beautiful Red Square.

7 Sisters

If you travel to New York you don't ask yourself what skyscrapers are compensating for. But when Stalin builds such imposing towers you wonder if he's still in his right mind. Of course nobody asked him that when in 1947 he laid the foundation stone for the first of the Seven Sisters: the Lomonosov University. How does it feel to study on the 36th floor of a 235-meter-high building? Airy, in any case. And it was probably the right thing for free spirits. Good that the building houses the faculty of geography as one definitely needs a map here. Stalin could just have built this one skyscraper in the socialist-classicist style but he eagerly continued, designing six other buildings of the same style based on a simple principle: A giant tower in the centre, two wings to the left and right, and who stands in the shadow of the building is immediately reminded of the Soviet superiority and ready to wave hammer and sickle.   Among the other six sisters, by the way, are the Foreign Ministry, the Hotel Ukraine, the Hotel Leningradskaja, two residential buildings and the house at the Red Door which accommodates the Moscow urban development company. The highlight of the collection is missing, though: The 8th sister has never been built because the ground was too soft for 32 floors of pure imperialism.

Gallery

You might need to get used to the name but it fits the concept. Since 2007 the Gallery.Photographer.ru in the art temple Winzavod offers space for contemporary photographers of the local art scene. A gallery as an agent - so to speak.   On sturdy brick walls the individual perspective onto the word is presented. The reduced interior strengthens the personal impressions of the artists. The fact that the director is a women rounds off the overall image. The 15 minute car ride from the Kremlin is definitely worth it and the way through the city will pay off. Not only in order to discover aspiring local newcomers but also because of the already nationally and internationally known photography artists. If you want to track down trends, than this is the right place. But not only viewing is allowed, you may also purchase vintage prints and collector's pieces from limited editions.

SHOPPING in Moscow

Shopping in Moscow
Krasnyj Oktjabr

Hot Tipp: Come with an empty stomach. At the chocolate factory you will get enough sweet stuff to mess up your sugar levels for a lifetime. But never mind as a glance behind the scenes pays off in any case. German Ferdinand von Einem brought the chocolate to Russia in the 19th century. Then, he employed five people in his small pastry shop. Today the chocolate empire produces 60,000 tons of chocolate - no wonder that they feed you some on the tour. You will taste cherries and almonds, dark and milk chocolate, the legendary Mishka waffles with the bear on top and plenty of confectionary.   Help yourself, please, you are in best company. Rumour has it that even Gorbachev loved the cult chocolate when he was still a child. And if you have survived the sugar shock you can order your own chocolate figure at the shop: a bowl of strawberries, a soccer ball or a business man bathing in money at best. The tour costs 16 Euros, a box of confectionary included in the price. Compared to the past this is a good bargain: In earlier times the noble chocolate cost as much as a cow.

Transilwanija

Here's another bloodsucker: While the Transilwanija sells its CDs at top prices, you are confronted with pure nostalgia here. But first you have to find the store as it is well-hidden in the backyard of the Crab House restaurant. The search pays off as you will spend at least as much time there (you can't get through 50,000 CDs that easily). But don't worry: the stuff is well-assorted and you won't search long if you know what you want. The system is based on countries, so look for New German Music, Old German Music or Very old French Music.   Above all fans of old CDs will get their share. Scandinavian World Music and Old US Rock complete the musical roundtrip and get us to the titles. The Transilwanija's offer includes hits from the GDR as well as Japanese pop, rare electronic music as well as very rare electronic music - and if you get lost, you can still ask the profound shop assistant for help.

TSUM

TSUM. Tsentralnyi Universalnyi Magazin. Sounds old-fashioned, but it's not. You only find the best of the best in this department store near the Bolshoi Theatre. In this sense, it's a big competition for the dignified GUM at the Red Square. In contrast to the latter, the TSUM is not a stringing together of single stores but a department store in the whole with various areas.   On a surface of 60,000 square metres more than 1,000 brands are presented in the building which was designed by the known architect Roman Klein. No matter if it's Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Roberto Cavalli, Dior or Jimmy Choo: all the big designer brands are to be found here, not surprising as shopping is the most popular leisure activity among Moscow ladies.   If you're tired of clothes, shoes and fragrances you can have smaller plastic surgeries on the second floor. Or you buy some culinary treats in the 24-hour luxury supermarket on the ground floor. Or you have a drink in the Ice Vodka Kauffman Bar, the only ice bar in Moscow. Sa starowje!
