Among the musts, there is of course the Red Square by the Kremlin wall, St. Vasil's Cathedral and the Lenin Mausoleum which with its granite walls does not boast a very handsome appearance but whose interior is everso more imposing. Should you wish to see a Bolshoy ballet performance, please book the tickets well in advance.
Moscow has an amazing variety of restaurants. In addition to international restaurants, a number of restaurants specialize in Russian traditional cuisine. For example the delicious Georgian cuisine is absolutely worth trying. Moreover many ethnic restaurants greet their clients with live music or dance performances. To entertain their customers, quite a number of cafés, bars, and night clubs are open the clock round.
Present-day Moscow is a shopping paradise with a steep increase in new shopping centers over the past years. Beside the famous GUM department store, there are now many other modern shopping centers. For traditional objects and handicraft products, the markets in Moscow are ideal, e.g. the well-known Izmaylov market has fine wooden objects, linen and Russian crystal on sale.
