We're headed to Moscow at the end of April beginning of May. What are the places that are a MUST? First time going. We're so excited! Thanks!
After a long flight from California I could either have a car waiting for me or take Aeroexpress. Considering the amount of traffic in Moscow it would appear to be quicker to take the express then a taxi from Belorussky Rail station.

whats close hotel from sheremetyevo airport?
I am having an aeroflot flight and my ticket is showing: (Delhi over Moscow to Düsseldorf) In accordance with Aeroflot rules, free baggage allowance on your route is 2PC=23kg+23kg+10kg (hand luggage) (piece concept) The weight of the piece must not exceed 23 kilograms. The size of the piece must not exceed 158centimeters in 3 measurements. You can also take 1 piece of carry-on bag in cabin. Carry on weight must not exceed 10 kilograms and its size must not exceed 115 centimeters in 3 dimensions (55×40×20). I am flying first time aeroflot as allowance of luggage is 2 pieces plus hand luggage. Now I have the doubt how you weight, both together = 46kg or single separately? Do they allow any tolerance? Many thanks in advance
I will have a stop-over in Moscow Friday December 19th on my way to Vietnam and I will have four or five hours in central Moscow to do some sightseeing (from 11 or 12 a.m. till 4 p.m.). Transit visa has been fixed and I know how and when to get to and from the airport.
I am mostly into architecture and my plan is to see the exterior of St Basil´s Cathedral and State House Museum. I will browse quickly at the interior of GUM and in Kreml I will go directly to the Cathedral Sq to admire the exterior of the churches and the Bell Tower. I will not enter the Bell Tower neither the Armoury.
1. I am really into architecture as well as photography, and would like to see some of the churched from inside as well. Should I choose St Bail or any of the ones at Cathedral Sq; which are the more beautiful ones? What are the lines like to get inside? I have read that photography is not permitted inside the churches on Cathedral Sq; what about inside St Basil´s?
2. Anything else I should not miss while being in the Kremlin/Red Sq area?
3. Do I need to change money so I have some rubles, or can I pay entrance fees and my lunch etc with Visa? What about the airport express train and the metro?
4. Does anyone have a restaurant in the area to recommend? I do not want to waste time searching for a restaurant. European food is preferred, but not necessarily. Should I eat inside GUM while I am there to save time? If so; which restaurant?
Thanks from Lena

Any good hotels to check out in Moscow on a budget for 2 persons?
MY HUSBAND, son 19, myself surprise birthday for our daughter she will be 21. we are in Moscow Friday - Sunday this week. What must we not miss, What is top priority.
I will have a 15 hours stopover in Moscow on my way to Vietnam. I will land at 5 a.m. and leave again at 8 p.m. I have booked a hotel in the area Pokrovaka in central Moscow and am about to order the invitation letter ($39) from the hotel so I can apply for a tourist visa. My plan is to sleep in my room till 11 a.m. and then do sightseeing until I have to leave for SVO again.
1. What is the best and cheapest way to get from SVO to central Moscow that early morning? I do not want to spend a fortune on taxi (googled and saw something saying fixed price €39, which I am not really keen on paying). I see the Aeroexpress leaves SVO from 5 a.m. in the morning till Belorussky. But how do I get from Belorussky to Pokrovaka? My hotel says it is located close to Kursky railway station and Chkalovskaya and Kurskaya metro stations.
2. And what time should I go back to SVO (it is a Friday) to catch my 8 p.m. flight. I will leave from the area around Kreml etc, how do I get to Belorussky from there?
Thanks from Lena

Wandering down the main drag towards Red Square this morning I was crossing the road when a guy in front of me dropped something. Before I'd realised what it was another guy from behind me picked it up. He asked, what I assumed was, if it was mine. I then saw that it was a see-through plastic wallet filled with money.
I shook my head and pointed to the guy in front.
So the guy who had picked it up then caught up with the guy who had dropped it and asked him.
The guy who'd dropped it looked very grateful and thanked us both. I just pointed at the guy who'd picked it up and gestured that it was nothing to do with me.
Suddenly a fourth guy intervened and showed us all a very convincing police pass, complete with badge, his photograph and a distinct hologram. He asked to see all our passports/ID which we all handed over, one at a time obviously. The plain-clothed policemen then asked to see what money we had. He checked our money in turn and handed it back to us. Then the policeman said something like," OK, you can go."
This was all done in Russian and so I was just following the body language but at no time did I feel it was a scam, or anything threatening. It was just a bit odd.
Thinking about it; all I can conclude is that maybe the police are trying to catch some opportunist thieves and doing this as a "Sting". Any opportunist thief would just have picked up the money and tried to get away with it. The subsequent apprehension would then allow the police to search the suspect and if found to be carrying substantially more money than just the "sting package" would result in an arrest.
Anyone else had this, or anything similar, happen to them in Moscow?
