Moscow

Moscow

It is not surprising that Moscow, Russia's capital and the largest city on the European continent, has a rich history. You will want to fly with Austrian Airlines to Moscow and discover the numerous opportunities for enjoying contemporary theatre, fine art, music, and dance. Moscow has an abundance of modern delights including night clubs, cafes, and edgy art galleries. One can explore the onion domed churches such as St. Basil's Cathedral, the monuments to fallen heroes, the Kremlin walls and towers, and other vestiges of the former soviet state. Moscow has an enormous number of parks, making it one of the greenest cities in Europe. Sports have always been a tradition in Moscow and the tradition has continued into the present with many competitive venues, including a large sports center.

SHOPPING in Moscow

Shopping in Moscow
Traffic+

At first sight you might think that the dresses, jackets and pants at Traffic+ all pretty much look alike. Lots of black and white, a few dashes of colour. But such an impression is wrong for every piece is unique. The art- and media-loving clientele of the Muscovite store appreciates that. They come because of the 40 international labels that cannot be found elsewhere in the city. Amongst them: Baum und Pferdgarten, Hache, Royal RepubliQ or Lilith.   Traffic+ also has a big sister, her name is Traffic and she's four years older. The shelves at Traffic are also packed with designer clothes that are selected by the store owners from all over the world. Every piece has its own story, otherwise it wouldn't have made its way into the line of goods. Where the ideas for the dressing rooms made of plastic tubes, the garden gnome at the shoe rack and the factory lights come from couldn't be found out. What a pity.

Jelissejew

We all know that people from Moscow are show-offs at times. But this deli tops it all, impressing above all with its stunning architecture. There is no time left for shopping. If you step into the store, you're almost crushed by Baroque: Imposing sculptures, powerful pillars and giant chandeliers dominate the main hall. Additionally, there are magnificent Art Nouveau elements and as much gold to make Scrooge McDuck green with envy. If you manage to tear your eyes away from the richly decorated ceiling, you will be overwhelmed by all the delicacies on offer at sales counters made of polished wood.   How will you ever be able to get all that in your luggage? You won't, but even with prices above your annual salary it will be hard to resist the temptation.  Here an aquarium with delicious fish, there a Russian-style gourmet sausage and exclusive vodka over there - the question is where to begin? The Jelissejew, after all, is not the usual supermarket but a first-class gourmet Mecca. Here's my tip: Bring many shopping bags along!

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.

Cristal Room

Opulent is not enough to describe the Baccarat: There, you experience the successful fusion of crystal and design, of French cuisine and Russian influences, of ancient nobility and state-of-the-art interior. Baccara is well-known: It once was the manufactory of crystal chandeliers for the old Tsars. Today, there is lustre still, but money is made on crystal costume jewellery as well, a Russian Swarovski so to speak. And when Baccarat meets Philippe Starck, the result is a perfect combination of chic and elegant, of sparkling chandeliers and white designer furniture.   The best of glamour is accompanied by the best of season meal from the kitchen. In between sparkling crystal and under luxurious stucco you enjoy Foie-Gras tarte flambée or sea snails, and when you are through with dinner in this glittering dreamland, a crystal aquarium awaits you on your way out. Only a fairy is missing to make the fairytale complete with the tip of her wand.

Café Pushkin

The Pushkin is as elegant as amber and as old as Moscow itself. If you come here you eat at a museum. High ceilings, pillars and carved wood provide the basis for an exquisite meal but there's more to it than that. The restaurant is packed with antiques that are well worth to take a closer look at. What's that? A 19th-century coffee pot? And that? A 19th-century bronze clock? And that over there? A ship cannon dating back to the Swedish War in 1806.   And that's still only the beginning: At the Victorian Library you can browse through 18th-century first editions; the cellar once was a chemist's lab, and at the fireside lounge crystal chandeliers compete with golden wall decorations as far as their sparkle is concerned. Hungry already? The menu is of course made up of traditional ancient Moscow cuisine but there are French and Italian influences as well, surprising guests with Foie Gras and Tiramisu.   Honey, however, reigns supreme here: A variety of 20 types of honey make it hard to choose. But those who manage to taste all of them through Champaign Breakfast can take them home.

Warwary

Warwary is Barbarian. At least the restaurant translates Barbarians. However, the cuisine is far from wild; guests do not throw chicken bones and belching is probably just another taboo. The Warwary is Russia's first gourmet restaurant. The cuisine is as bold as its name, banning the usual dough buns from the plates.   There's plain ice instead of fat, and there are small spheres tasting of Borscht instead of Borscht. Instead of brown bread you are served brown bread in liquid form. You've already guessed? And you are right: the Warwary is the figurehead of molecular cuisine. And this cuisine is somewhat different - it splits up food in its ingredients and serves something at the table that looks strange to us but tastes much better.   The restaurant itself is a surprise as well: slightly decadent but friendly. While being noble, it is uncomplicated and does without five sets of forks and spoons. As refreshing as its atmosphere is, a gourmet dinner has its price. With eight courses at 120 euros, you best calculate the hourly rate yourself.

The Ritz-Carlton

If you step into the hotel you wonder whether the rooms were furnished during the fitted-carpet era. Or is this en vogue again? You can't tell from the furniture as it is classical and of finest design, as new as stripped from the plastic cover only recently. And there are modern warm shades, there's underfloor heating in the marble baths and there are Bulgari amenities wherever you look. Being in line with tradition and therefore authentic is always en vogue, after all.   But the hotel features state-of-the-art technology as well: remote controls for the DVD players, the flat-screens and the curtains. If you feel disconnected now, you luckily have W-Lan available, but if you get too confused just ask your butler! He will help you press the right button or plan the perfect day at the spa for you: hot-stone massage at 10:00, fitness centre at 11:00, rain shower at noon and fresh calorie uptake at the Restaurant Caviarterra thereafter.   And don't miss enjoying the view of the Kremlin on the terrace - you won't need a butler for it.

Golden Apple

Quite astonishing what hides behind the 19-century facade. Instead of redundant opulence the hotel impresses with apple trees. Inside, the hotel features avant-garde elements. While the colours of the rooms are rather masculine, stylish stools and designer lamps set colourful contrasts. The bathrooms are laid out in marble, there are accessories by Philippe Starck and the Loft Suite even features its own kitchenette. You don't need the latter though, not being able to compete with the international restaurant anyway.   Here's our suggestion: Come for dinner in the evening as the restaurant will have a special surprise for you then alongside with Russian cuisine. In the evening, the blinds will go down and the apple trees will be projected onto the blinds. Our conclusion: With his minimalist style, the Canadian designer Raphael Shafir has created a boutique hotel of chrome and much colour, attracting a clientele with a preference for trendy styles. Double room from approx. 200 euros.

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.

SIGHTS in Moscow

Sights in Moscow
Kremlin

The metre-high walls of the Kremlin are of little use today: More than two million visitors flock there every year, waging a photoflash war against the fortified city palace. No wonder: The Kremlin is Moscow's centre and origin; it is the centre of political and religious power. And you can even see a couple of Fabergé eggs there.  But those who think they can just stumble inside, are wrong: Security checks are tough, larger rucksacks and bags must stay outside and many parts of the Kremlin are taboo for tourists, the arsenal, the Senate (only politicians have access) and the Kremlin towers among them.   But you will need a day to see the rest anyway: the sparkling gold nuggets in the diamond chamber, the Fabergé eggs in the armoury, the onion towers of numerous cathedrals and churches. And if you still have not inhaled enough of Russia, you take a walk to the Tsar's bell, the Tsar's cannon or the Tsars' graves at the Archangel Michael Cathedral. Conclusion: The admission of 17 Euros is worth its price.

Moscow Zoo

Those who come in the summer will ask themselves right at the entrance what the wild birds will do during the winter period. Before you start knitting shawls for them, be assured: The pond doesn't freeze in the winter because it is heated by a compressor. Also the wild cats don't get cold - they have their own fur and if temperatures go below zero, the white tigers, panthers and lions have a protected indoor area at their disposal as well. The spectacled (or Andean) bear is used to the cold. It comes from the Andes but is almost extinct there and so seldom that he is the main attraction of the zoo.   The dolphins are also drawing visitors galore, staging up to eight shows per day and enthralling kids with their performances. Also the beluga whale has to work hard for his money, performing numerous jumps for visitors. Ticket sales start one hour prior to the show. But there are smaller animals as well. If you don't dare to go close to the whale you can also watch a wide variety of spiders, bugs and butterflies at the Insecttopia. Got an itch yet? Go to the zoo!

Fashion Week

Fashion Week in Moscow is like a movie in the movie. Besides, Moscow is a catwalk in itself anyway. Even when squeezing yourself into your most elegant LBD you will realize on the Tweskaja Uliza the latest that you can't stand the test: The people from Moscow have for sure more style and more money and the gift to combine both. Two times a year the capital's fashion hype reaches a fashion crescendo when new and old designers present their art during Fashion Week. In October more than 50 shows are launched and designers come from the Ukraine, from Lithuania, Italy and even Peru to be present where fashion is alive. Milano? How boring! When Vivienne Westwood presents her latest collection there, it has long since been worn in Moscow.   45,000 fashion gurus and more than 1,000 journalists flock to the World Trade Center two times a year to see the event of the season. But also the young wild ones get their share. Fashion Week gives fledgling designers a chance, so that Moscow remains the fashion Mecca of the East also in the future.
