A magnificent city with a fascinating history, Moscow is a delightful destination in the heart of Russia. Still unspoilt by tourism, the city offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy a busy destination as a family with a myriad of monuments, striking architecture and wonderful sights that make Moscow a worthy addition to any seasoned traveller’s bucket list. Those who prefer to enjoy a bit of old European decadence will not be disappointed, as Moscow is home to a magnificent old town bursting with fabulous eateries amid sophisticated buildings. Moscow offers many family-friendly cultural activities throughout the year from the Bolshoi theatre to Moscow’s State Circus.
Renting holiday accommodation in Moscow
As a relatively new addition to the tourist scene, your best bet is to rent holiday accommodation. A holiday apartment will give you the freedom to plan your visit the way you want it and the luxury of having your own space. Renting holiday accommodation will give you the perfect excuse to interact with the local community and chat with your neighbour who will tell you where to find the most exquisite restaurants to enjoy local delicacies such as blinis topped with caviar. A hotel is not such an attractive option when you can enjoy your very own holiday apartment in which you can put your feet up after a long day out and about exploring Moscow’s many parks, visiting magnificent museums and discovering the city’s countless hidden corners.
Where to stay in Moscow
Moscow is such a charming and beautiful that we understand if you don’t want to share it with other travellers in noisy hotels. Whether you prefer to book a lavish studio apartment overlooking the Kremlin’s magnificent towers or a larger holiday rental with spectacular views over the river, HouseTrip offers a wide selection of self-catering accommodation that is perfect for your family holiday and will allow you to enjoy all the comfort of having your own home away from home. After a long day exploring Moscow’s unmatched restaurants, wonderful parks or innovative museums, there is nothing like revelling in the luxury of putting your feet up in your own lounge with a glass of wine after enjoying a home-cooked meal with fresh ingredients that you hand-picked at the market. Of course with so much to see doing a load of laundry is probably the last thing on your mind but you know that the washing machine is there should you ever need it.
Moscow with the family
A visit to Saint Basil’s cathedral, a mighty 13th century structure with its fairy tale domes and enchanting design will delight children and should be on top of your list. You can then make your way towards the Kremlin and the adjacent Red Square, the hub of Russia’s contemporary history before finding a table at one of the many cafes in Moscow’s Old Quarter where you can indulge in some people-watching. Don’t forget to treat the kids to a few rides at Gorky Park’s funfair before booking your Bolshoi tickets. An expensive hotel could never compare to the freedom of enjoying an idyllic break with your loved ones in such an authentic way. Are you ready to discover this fabulous city?
