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.

DoDo

In former times she used to dine at restaurants in order to write reviews and evaluate the dishes afterwards. Today Svetlana Kessoyan runs her own restaurant. She knows, how to do it and therefore opened the DoDo in Moscow.   Together with chef Alexi Kim, Kessoyan particularly pays attention to a varying menu. At DoDo on Petrovka Street, 15 minutes away from the Red Square, you don't order a regular Ceasar's Salad. Instead you'll find a salad with tuna and avocado or duck breast on the menu. You can also order beef steak and on Wednesdays and Saturdays you'll be served fresh fish. Throughout the whole day the former food critic serves the Russians' most popular breakfast pancakes, blinis and omelettes.   The DoDo fans come in flocks and sit on the spacious terrace that is adorned with flowers. And in five minutes they are back in the city centre again, at the Bolshoi theatre or the department store TSUM. There's simply nothing to complain about the DoDo.

Coffeemania

Cynics say that Coffeemania is the Russian Starbucks equivalent. It's true; you get your Latte, your Moccachino and your Espresso - just as in the US chain. But there are differences. Instead of muffins there's a variety of finest cakes on offer, such as the incredible Orinoko, a chocolate cake with raspberries; or the Desire, a fantastic creation made of marzipan, strawberries and pistachios. Yet before you choose your dessert take a look at the menu - as in addition to coffee and cake the Coffeemania also has a variety of culinary treats from Asia (excellent wok dishes), Italy (delicious Bruschetta) and Russia (Pelmeni and Borsch - the two classics) in store.   Each Coffeemania has a different interior decoration - from trendy to artistic or traditional. Quite contrary to Starbucks you are allowed to smoke here. And the service is far better. Only specialists are allowed to work the coffee machines. So-called Baristas are trained for that - it's their task to brew and prepare the most perfect coffee. Coffeemania is the right place for all those interested in art, a piece of cake or international cuisine.

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.

SIGHTS in Moscow

Sights in Moscow
Lenin Mausoleum

Lenin never wanted to be exhibited like that, but Stalin asserted himself: He knew how to attract the crowds and built the mausoleum, then still made of wood. As it decayed fast, a newer and larger tomb was built.   Today, the mausoleum is made of dark-red granite, for eternity, so to speak. Also Lenin was prepared to last for ever: 12 scientists check his embalmed body twice a week.   In Soviet times even a whole laboratory was occupied with the task to conserve Lenin. In the beginning, the dead man wore his uniform but times change and as Moscow is always en vogue in matters of fashion, the revolution leader changes his suit and tie every three years. That has its price: In order to maintain the mausoleum and Lenin, a private fund spends more than one million Euros per year. Conclusion: There can't be more cult about a dead man.

Nikulin Circus

Can you take a joke? If so, Nikulin Circus is the right place for you. There, not the lions but the clowns are the stars. Yuri Nikulin was one of the most famous Russian clowns and for a long time the number-one joke producer of the circus of the same name. If you want to train your risible muscles you've found the right spot. Never before have you seen so many gimmicks, so much white make-up and so many huge shoes.   But not only the clowns make a good show, also the tightrope walks set your pulse racing. What acrobats show us here has to be trained many years - and only from watching them one gets dizzy. And once the lions are out in the ring one wonders whether the big cats are as tame as they look. But let's get back to the clowns: Those who make it to this circus are really good and really funny. So come by and have fun. You won't regret it.

Novodevichy

The Novodevichy Convent owes its riches to cronyism. The daughters and women of noble families were sent to the convent, eagerly donating to the honour of God. Some of them did not come on their own accord though. Peter I sent his half-sister to the convent because she had an eye on the throne. The tsar also did not trust his first wife and sent her behind convent walls. How convenient!   But on your own accord or not, living behind these strong walls is not half as bad as it sounds. The buildings were constructed in the style of Moscow Baroque, with gold-trimmed iconostases, onion towers and magnificent interior. In addition, visitors may find salvation in several churches and cathedrals. The spacious area includes the Cathedral of Christ the Savour, the Ambrosius Church, the Protection of the Virgin Gate Church, the Cathedral of the Dormition and the 16th-century Smolensk Cathedral. And if you have inhaled enough incense you can cross yourself three times at the beautiful graveyard - in honour of the daughter of Ivan the Terrible who is buried here in the good company of Nicolay Gogol and Boris Yeltsin. Our tip: Have a dictionary on you; otherwise you will discover the famous ones only by their busts.

STAY in Moscow

Stay in Moscow
Hotel National

Historical or not, if you stay at the Hotel National you will need a good insurance. Or else you move with extreme caution amidst the sumptuous antiques. The 19th-century china is not as stable as it looks.   And better not touch the precious paintings. The candle holders are made of bronze and for your eyes only. You're lucky: The giant fresco on the ceiling is too far away and you can't do anything wrong with the whirlpool in the bathroom.   If you sleep at a museum you must be prepared for broken pieces. But don't worry: Nicolas Sarkozy, Silvio Berlusconi and Jacques Chirac have also managed to avoid that. Besides, you can still hide in the exclusive ambience of the restaurant and fight your fear of compensations with molecular cuisine. We recommend a decent bottle of wine and the fantastic view of the Red Square and the Kremlin. Double room from 300 euros per night.

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.

Artel Hotel

The dream of every graffiti artist: The Artel subscribes to graffiti, neglecting old traditions. Already at the front desk you get a feeling for the hotel's spirit: Bricks and a slogan sprayed casually onto the wall welcome the guests.   The hallways are laid out colourfully and there's modern art on the walls. But is the room as great as the hallway promises? If you have booked a design room you won't be disappointed: There's graffiti art on the walls and the small rooms boast fancy interior. While the room is kind of small (20 square metres), you sleep amidst Argentine spray art, something in between comics and religion, psychedelic dreams and folklore.   Other rooms are more Expressionist; even Andy Warhol served as inspiration for the art on the walls. In all the rooms you feel like checking in a fancy club - and that's not so far-fetched as the hotel houses a trendy bar featuring Russian underground live music on three evenings a week. And what about a good night's sleep? Well, you can still go down to the restaurant and have some vodka with your meal - then you'll be able to sleep for sure. Double room from 120 euros per night.

SHOPPING in Moscow

Shopping in Moscow
Gum

Have you also asked yourself already why everything costs three times as much in Moscow? Here's the answer: The store rents are as astronomical as the palm grease at the border. That's why designer stores have to sell at much higher prices if they want to make profit at all.   Yet Russian fashion victims don't care: They want to buy whatever it costs - and now. To keep up-to-date they flock to the GUM department store, its location alone being quite impressive. Located in the immediate vicinity of the Red Square, the GUM offers luxury shopping in the purest sense. Those who have a shop here have made it, next to Armani, Jil Sander and Max Mara. Already when looking in the shop windows you are filled with wonder and awe. Inside, you get anything that is noble and exclusive: chronographs by Chaumet, leather by Ferragamo, jewellery by Dior. If you don't get bankrupt here, you're either a millionaire or a thief.

Twins Shopp

Yulia and Inga are twins. The two Muscovites have a passion for travelling and meet dozens of people around the world. But it's not just anybody they meet - it's young designers whose creations they provide a platform for in their store Twins Shopp in the historic part of Moscow. At the same time they tell their story there: it's about discoveries and expectations, but also disappointments.   Apparently, the lively sisters have also been travelling to alpine regions: the massive wooden wardrobe in the store looks like a rustic alpine treasure chest. The friendly living room atmosphere is part of the twins' concept - the green velvet fauteuil also fits perfectly. In between there are the racks with the pieces: garments for women and men, shoes, bags, and accessories. Delicately presented in front of a white brick wall, put into the right light by orange sphere lamps. By the way - the building in which the store is located is also quite impressive - from an architectonic point of view. And after your shopping spree you can keep your new clothes on and go to the in-house club or the restaurant.

Yudashkin

For a long time Russia didn't have its own designers. Fashion was limited to grey wool fabrics and uniform clothing but that's different today. Apart from Slawa Saizew, the star of the Russian designer sky, another Phoenix is rising from the ashes, creating eccentric and very colourful fashion. Valentin Yudashkin has made it: His fashion is not only famous in Moscow but also on the international catwalks. The store in Moscow has become a real institution for all those that work little and spend a lot. Especially Yudashkin's accessories are hardly suitable for the office.   It's pretty hard to lift a file with a jewellery-studded watch on your wrist. Typing is impossible if you wear a knuckleduster on your finger. And while the extraordinary high-heels are incredibly chic, you can hardly walk more than ten metres on cobblestone in them. Be it as it is, the Haute Couture by Yudashkin makes every woman feel like a princess.
