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.

Taras Bulba
For your better understanding: Taras Bulba is a short story by the Ukrainian author Nicolay Gogol on the Cossack leader Bulba waging war against Poland. The story also centres on his two sons, on love, intrigues, murder and a bit of humour - all the ingredients necessary for a Russian poet and also for a Hollywood blockbuster: in this case starring Yul Brynner as leading man.   The restaurant chain sticks to tradition selling Ukrainian-Russian cuisine in a typical atmosphere. All the restaurants look like farmhouse rooms; waiters are clad in traditional costumes. The menu is as long as War and Peace - don't bother to read through it as you will probably starve in the meantime. I recommend you try the dough buns, but also the pancakes are certainly worth a try. Go for French wine and hard liquor with it, or have a Taras Bulba Drink to start with.

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.

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.

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!
