Things to Keep In Mind When Vacationing In Moscow
If you have booked your plane tickets for flights to Moscow then here are some tips that will hold you in good stead in Russia’s capital city.
The best time to enjoy your vacation in Moscow is from late spring, to summer till early autumn. You can consider booking your ticket airline for anytime from May till October as the climate is rather welcoming. Though the weather is cold, it is not freezing so and you can hope to enjoy the great outdoors. If you are interested in a winter vacation here, then just make sure that you are up for spending days and nights inside, maybe visiting museums, galleries etc, as it becomes quite a challenge to be out in such sub-zero temperatures.
What to pack
When packing for Moscow, the rule of the thumb is to pack all your woolens, you can find, and then more! Irrespective of the season you choose to book your cheap tickets to Moscow for, you need to be swathed in layers of clothes. Even during summers, you must not step out without the protection of a scarf, woolens, hat, and thick pair/pairs of socks. When it comes to winters, layer up even more! Most of the Muscovites rely on the good ol’ vodka to keep the chill away, so if you are ‘allowed’ to drink, then a swig or two will actually be a good idea.
Keep in Mind
No matter where you go to in Moscow, keep your passport handy, for the local police are known to ask for it randomly. It is also a good idea to keep the number of your embassy handy, in case a situation arises. Also within 3 working days of your arrival in Moscow, all tourists need to get their visa registered. You can seek help of your hotel’s services, who can do this for you. But just in case that doesn’t happen, you have to go to Ul. Pokrovka 42 and get it done yourself.
Getting around the city
If you are coming in winters, then give a pass to exploring the city on foot, as it gets really, really cold then. But if you are in Russia’s capital city anytime before or after that, then you can consider traversing a few sections on foot, especially the Central Moscow area.
Muscovites are not as particular on tipping as some other people, but you can round of your bill to the nearest 50 or 100 ruble.
