Weekend breaks to Moscow
If you are living near Moscow, there can be little to no excuse for not taking a short weekend break to see the sites. Moscow is most famous for the Kremlin, a whimsical governmental building that has dominated the Russian landscape for years. For those who would like a weekend trip full of the arts, there is always time for the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, Tretyakov Gallery and a very special visit to a ballet performance. Weekend breaks to Moscow must also include an appreciation of how the landscape has changed since the rise of communism in Russia. Several of the old historic churches and buildings were demolished and replaced with Soviet bloc architecture that is in stark contrast to the Russian historic tradition. The most stunning examples are the seven skyscrapers that make up the Seven Sisters. These skyscrapers are littered across the city and used to be some of the tallest in Moscow.
Weekend Trips and Weekend Stays
While you are touring around Moscow, you thoughts will probably turn to where you are going to stay that night. If those thoughts are positive on your weekend break, you have chosen well but if they turn sour at the thought of having to end your day, you may have chosen unwisely. For those who want to be economical on their weekend break and who wouldn’t mind getting to know some of the locals in Moscow, staying with locals might be the right accommodation choice.
