Get to know Moscow (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Moscow.

 Red Square is located in the heart of Moscow.

Moscow is the capitol of Russia and a major political and cultural center. It is arranged in a circular way. If you are looking for a Moscow hostel, there are several possible areas of the city.

Generally speaking, it is reasonable and recommended to try to find Moscow hostel somewhere close to the Kremlin which is close to the Arbat, a pedestrian street in the center of the city. Arbat and its surrounding area is a place of contrasts: beautiful historic villas stand next to ugly grey multi-story buildings and you will find fast food chains next to traditional Russian restaurants. Another interesting place to look for a Moscow hostel: Kitaj Gorod, is one of the oldest parts of the city and you can still see the old city wall there. Samoskworetsche is vis-à-vis of the Kremlin on the other side of Moskva River and provides a really nice view of the city. The Boulevard Ring is the green zone in the middle of the city with lots of parks and greenlands.

Getting around from your Moscow hostel is theoretically easy since there is an extensive public transport system consisting of subway trains, trams, and buses. In reality, it is quite difficult to use the bus system if you are unable to understand and especially read Russian.

The metro is probably most easy to use for tourists, but always carry a metro map with both English and Russian writing to be able to figure out which line to take and where you are. Using the metro is an absolute must since it is famous for its art, murals, mosaics, and ornate chandeliers. There are no less than five airports that serve Moscow; they are all accessible by train. Allow enough time for traveling purposes, especially getting to the airport, since you might encounter difficulties.

While staying in a Moscow hostel, you will definitely not run out of things to do: visit the Kremlin, admire the Red Square and spend time in the mind-blowing museums such as the Tretyakov gallery of the Pushkin Museum of Fine Art. See the famous Russian State Ballet at the Bolshoi Theatre or check out Moscow’s vibrant nightlife. Be warned that it might be difficult for a foreigner to find their way so it might be a good idea to employ a Russian-speaking tour guide. Also make sure to arrange for a visa well in advance, or you will be denied access to the country.
