Exploring the City
Like most world capitals, Moscow promises visitors plenty of time on their feet. Comfortable shoes, a visa and rubles (many establishments here are cash-only) are essential. You’ll also want the following.
- In winter, you’ll want to bring your warmest clothes. In other seasons the weather can be temperamental, so pack plenty of layering pieces and a travel umbrella.
- You won’t want to miss seeing the interiors of some of the world’s most spectacular churches. Women should bring a shawl or headscarf and avoid wearing miniskirts or shorts before stepping inside.
- Carry your daily essentials — wallet, phone, camera, bottled water — in a tote, cross-body bag or backpack that leaves your hands free.
