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.

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.

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 immortalized 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.

KGB Museum
Lubyanka: Many Russians get goose bumps at the mention of this name.  The KGB headquarters was once the venue of hundred-thousand tortures and those who survived the Stalinist terror were either executed or sent to a Gulag. The KGB Museum often tries to hide this fact, rather focusing on the strange side of espionage today. If you are interested in the Cold War, you will like this place. And don't worry: You won't disappear. Sticking to the principle of Glasnost Russia today is very eager to reveal to tourists anything that was top-secret before: bugs, for example. There are cameras in lighters, so we ask ourselves whether all Russian spies had to smoke in the past. The secret remains unanswered, so we continue to the coke cans with explosives and the loot that could be taken from the hated Americans. An American spacecraft is the main attraction of the museum. The KGB has long since resolved but the building has remained. Today Lubyanka is the seat of FSB, the Russian secret service. It was headed by Vladimir Putin for one year.

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.
