INTRODUCTION TO MOSCOW

It would take you several lifetimes to fully explore Russia’s array of historical riches and cultural delights. After all, this is the world's largest country, a place where the average trip can take in everything from a scenic cruise through the canals of St Petersburg to a night experiencing the legendary vodka-fuelled Moscow nightlife. So how on earth do you decide what to see? Allow us to walk you through it.

WHAT TO PACK?

what-to-pack
A copy of Gorky Park - There's no more atmospheric location to immerse yourself in Martin Cruz Smith's spine-tingling Cold War crime thriller.

Painkillers - Whether it's the famed Russian Standard vodka or one of the country's many other varieties, Russians like to drink! Be prepared for a hangover or two.

Translation app - Keen to avoid some nasty surprises at the dinner table? Use your smart phone to translate Russian to English.

Travel adapter & voltage converter - Russia uses the standard European 2-pin plugs, so most travel adapter plugs should have you covered.

Sensible walking shoes - Barcelona and Seville in particular have a number of cobbled streets. Ladies don’t be caught out struggling in high heels!

Russian phrasebook - The Russian language is very difficult to learn, so your best bet is simply to learn some common Russian phrases or at least a few Russian words.
