Russia

Russia

Russia is as attractive to both nature and sports-fans as to those who are primarily interested in culture or history. Russia reaches from the arctic north to the endless woods of the taiga. Come to Russia and go trekking in the lovely hills of the Caucasus or skiing in the Ural! A trip to Moscow and Saint Petersburg is also a visitors-must. Moreover, Russia is the home country of the famous vodka.

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!

Kempinski
While Kempinski is a German company, the hotel has a typical British demeanour. It is reserved, always obliging but surrounded by royal luxury. The location is alone is terrific: The Kempinski is within an Earl Grey's reach from the Red Square. You can almost touch the onion towers when opening your windows. Numerous artists used to have their studios in the rooms of the hotel, the view from it immortalised on canvas. Today, guests enjoy the fantastic vista without an easel.   The interior of the luxury hotel boasts exquisite fabrics, marble baths and warm shades. W-Lan, flat-screens and English dailies are useful add-ons for manager. But do relax and recreate at the spa as well: In the indoor pool you can leave the daily grind behind. Your personal trainer will help you reduce your stress level at the fitness centre and a massage will make you forget all worries. And do eat! After having killed so many calories you may well treat yourself a hearty Japanese, French or Russian dinner. Have a tea and two scones thereafter and you will feel like a Briton again. Double room from 510 euros per night.

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.

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.
