Sightseeing and Culture of Beautiful Places in Moscow Russia
First things first, the downtown area. It would take a lot of time to describe it all. I would just say that it is definitely where you should start. Also, this is where you should finish as well. Since this is where beautiful places in Moscow Russia and most of interesting things are located. However, we call this as “The area inside of the circle”. Which stands for the ring underground line in the city.
The center of the downtown area is the Red Square. Also, it includes the Kremlin itself, a huge old magnificent castle. Where the government resides. However, inside and outside of Kremlin you can find different museums, churches and other peculiar building. Therefore, to visit them all and explore everything thoroughly you probably need at least a week.
For those who appreciate pictures and arts, you definitely must go to the Tretyakovskaya Galery. It is a huge place with a lot of expositions of different Russian and foreign artists. Mostly of old times.

If you’d like to learn the history from archeological and biological perspective, instead of going to Kremlin, you should visit the Darwin’s museum. It is another beautiful place in Moscow Russia. Although, the list of such places is actually big. But, as I said, you can find almost everything concentrated around Kremlin.
One of the new modern places out of the center which draws a lot of attention due to its size and prices is “Moscow-City”. However, it’s great for making pictures and to see how different Moscow could be. Also, Moscow is surely popular among visitors for its underground stations. Russians are used to them But foreign tourists, especially from China, are totally crazy about them. Furthermore, the architecture is wonderful; even though it’s a bit outdated from technological perspective. Also, some of them are different. And you can just spend one day traveling to different stations and making pictures of them.
Nature and Recreational activities of Beautiful Places in Moscow Russia
There are a lot of parks in Moscow and some of them are located really close to the central area. This beautiful places in Moscow Russia are worth mentioning. This is because they are really popular among people who live in Moscow. They provide a lot of Recreational activities, and certainly, are beautiful. Moreover, these are parks Gorky, Zaryadye and Sokolniki. Although, during the last decade Gorky and Sokolniki parks changed drastically. They look clean, have some sportive areas and wonderful alleys for walking, jogging and running. Also, there are a lot of events going on here all the time. Nevertheless, Park Fili has all of it as well, but it is located a bit further to the west. Unfortunately, not long ago the authorities made the new rules that state that you can’t make barbeque in central parks. Which is a pure pity, since it is one of the traditional ways of spending weekends among Russian folk.
National Elk Park and Bitsa
Going further, there are parks much bigger that may be even considered to be forests. If you look for a true nature you should check them out. For example, start with National Elk Park and Bitsa Park. The first one is located close to my own house. However, I consider it being one of the greatest places in whole Moscow.

Entertainments Moscow Russia
Since it is the capital of the country and it is an expensive city. It provides a lot of entertainments. There are a lot of cafes, restaurants and bars if you’d like just to spend time more passively. Also, if you’d like to play sports like football, basketball or volleyball, there are plenty of pitches around. But still not enough of them, on my opinion. However, their quality is mediocre. If you want to enjoy a good game, you’d better rent one of the covered fields. But it would cost you quite amount if you don’t have many people to play.
Bowling and Billiards
There are a lot of specific entertainments as well. For example, you can play bowling and billiards (pool) almost everywhere. There are plenty of fitness centers as well. Also, there are two major aquaparks in Moscow – Kva-Kva and Moreon. I tried them both and they are great. Also, the culture of escape rooms and VR rooms is getting popular here with every day. And I must admit, it’s something peculiar and worth trying. Especially if you’d like to experience something new indoors.

Also, there are plenty of cinemas and theaters there. However, some of them even show movies in English and other languages, for example, Pioneer. Although, you can find other entertainments as well depending on your preferences. I just shared those that I tried and liked personally. Also, Pioneer is one of the beautiful places in Moscow Russia.
Well, night life is the main reason why most of the tourists love Moscow and come here, actually. Especially from rich countries. Although, the prices are really high in most of the places. Furthermore, the night life itself is an unpredictable show of comedy, drama and theatre. Also, the number of clubs and bars are crazy. But only some of them are popular among foreigners.

On my subjective opinion most of such clubs are located around Lubyanka and Chistie Prudi stations e.g. Propaganda – the oldest club here in Moscow. Crazy Daizy, Casa Agave – the latin club, Jim and Jack – the headquarters of expats from all over the world. But near other stations there are also plenty of other options. As for a foreigner who likes to enjoy their time in international societies. I would highly recommend language exchange meetings that have being organised here. During the last 10 years as far as I remember, usually in the Hard Rock Café. The event itself is pretty casual, but it is one of the best places to meet new foreign people in life.
Casa Agave & Jim and Jack
Then, places like Casa Agave, a club in South American style, is pretty popular as well for their music choice and dancing classes. “Jim and Jack’s” is a place which is popular among the foreign expats, even though it is quite small. They always organize different sorts of events and activities. Especially when related to singing, live music and comedy shows. However, they are all held in English.
Well, and for true international parties you’d definitely like to take part in activities; organised by a man from Italy, Antonio. He does it on a regular basis and people enjoy them a lot. Furthermore, all good Friday nights start with Moscow International Events thrown by Antonio. Also, don’t forget that some folks organize great Couchsurfing events as well. So, you should check them out on the Couchsurfing platform.
And I would be damned if I wouldn’t promote my own group. Even though it’s secret and we invite only those, who contact us directly. You should join us if you are going to stay in Moscow for awhile.
