24 hours in Moscow. I’m still speechless when I think of Moscow. The beautiful architecture has just blown me away and I want to go back as soon as possible. But let’s start from the beginning. As you may already know, I’ve filmed an advertisement for the Russian airline Pobeda and Allgäu Airport Memmingen back in July. They now offer low cost direct flights from Munich to Moscow. The second part of the cooperation consisted of me going there to explore the city and to film my experience (find the final video below).

Off to Moscow with Pobeda

Pobeda is a new airline operating at the Allgäu Airport Memmingen and having several flights to Russia, e.g. to Moscow, Astrachan, Jekaterinburg, Kirov, Surgut, Tyumen and a couple of other destinations in Russia. My flight was around 120€ return. Moreover, I had to get a visa which cost 85€. You can book your flights to Moscow here.

24 hours in Moscow

Moscow is the biggest metropole in Europe and thus there is lots to discover. Unfortunately, we only had 24 hours in the city and I definitely want to go back sometime. Our hotel was located near the metro line Katai Gorod and we took the metro to go to the Red Square. Moscow has one of the most beautiful metro lines and I’ve found this article, which shows you the best ones. Getting out at the Red Square, we started the day with an extended brunch at the Grand Café Dr. Jhivago. A full restaurant guide will follow this week! Walking is the best to explore the city and so we took a long walk admiring some beautiful Russian architecture.

24 hours in Red Square to Krymskaya Embankment

Starting from the backside of the Red Square (the Red Square was blocked because of a parade), we walked all the way down to the more modern neighbourhood passing the 10 kilometres long Krymskaya Embankment, which was redesigned in 2013. The riverside has gotten a complete facelift with nice landscape architecture. There’s a long lane for pedestrians and bicycles. The wave-shaped artist pavilions are well known in the architecture world.

24 hours in Gorki Park

Finally, we reached the Gorki Park in the late afternoon, which is a fun park in the South of Moscow. You’ll find a variety of fun fairs, a boat rental and the famous Garage Museum by OMA. Given the fact that it was already super cold when we visited, the park wasn’t in full swing. Summer time must be really great here.

24 hours in GUM Warehouse

To soak up as much as possible of the city in such short time, we drove back to the Red Square and visited the famous GUM warehouse, which is one of the largest buildings in Europe. The interior was impressive and you could spent hours exploring the three floors.

We drove to the more modern part of Moscow in the evening. Unfortunately, we hadn’t time to see the Moscow City with its impressive skyscrapers. However, we got a nice impression seeing them from the Kalina Bar, which offers such a great view over the city.

There is still so much to see in Moscow and I highly recommend to take at least three – five days. I would have loved to see more of the Russian houses in the residential neighborhoods.

I hope you liked this little impression of Moscow. A post about planning your travel to Russia will be online soon!

I wish you a nice day!
