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.

Sights in Moscow

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!

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.

Stay in Moscow
Pearl Suite
Cheap accommodation in Moscow? Well, there are not many options. You either reside in the centre at high prices, or you reside on the outskirts, which means one-hour travel to the sights and sleeping in the outdated ambience of Soviet times. We have found an alternative, something in between so to speak. The apartment New Arbat Pearl Suite is located close to the centre, it's newly furnished and rather cheap.   Seen from outside the grey building offers nothing to get enthusiastic about but inside a surprise is waiting. The holiday apartment has everything you need: a washing machine, a fully equipped kitchen, bright and friendly furniture and a beautiful bath. But there is only one room, so forget about your friends and just come with your spouse. There's a supermarket just around the corner but if you feel like eating visit the district that comes next. The New Arbat Street is brimming with noble boutiques, casinos and pubs. One night at the apartment cost 149 Euros.

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.
