“A friend texted while I was there to say: “Be careful. Moscow is bad for your soul.” He’s wrong. It’s not bad for your soul, but I bet it could be very bad for your marriage, your bank balance and your gentleman’s area”, Jeremy Clarkson writes about the capital of Russia.

Moscow loves money and wants every tourist to spend it with both hands. Beware – you'll be forced to buy expensive matreshkas in Arbat street and luxury staff in GUM (“Russian Harrods”), and than try even more expensive borsch in a fancy restaurant (tourists only). It can be a pretty nice plan however it hardly gives you a sense of “real Russia”. Act like a local – and you'll see a brand new Moscow, city of endless nights, secret places and crazy people.

Eat local

The situation with national food restaurants in Moscow has been terrible in the past two years, but now it's changing. However we still prefer to eat traditional food at home. In the city centre you'll find several English pubs, dozens of sushi and pizza restaurants and almost no Russian food. We'd rather meet in a French cafe “Jean Jacques” (“Жан-Жак”) than go for caviar pancakes. There are several cheap Russian food chains – Yolki Palki, MUMU and Teremok, but we go there only if unexpected hunger catches us somewhere in the street or we are invited by people from cities far away from Moscow.


Moscovites don't really like a famous Cafe Pushkin either. It's posh, expensive and full of tourists. If you want something glamorous, rich and Russian (but tasty and atmospheric), you'd better try Alexandr Rappoport's Dr.Zhivago in the heart of the city. 
In summertime you definitely should eat in one of the Moscow's terrace cafes and bars like Time Out and Strelka.

... And don't regret sushi, it's a part of our culture now. 

Drink local

Moscow never sleeps, say the locals. In the middle of the night you can cut your hair, or buy a bike at the Sportmaster store, or wash your car. And of course you can have a perfect night out. Russians are considered to be the best drinkers in the world and we try to keep the name of the World's drinking capital.

If you want to dance and drink in the relaxed atmosphere, сhoose the area near Krasny Oktyabr (Red October), former chocolate factory turned into a huge business centre with clubs, bars and art galleries.


Do Russians drink vodka? Yes, we do. But an image of a drunk Russian who can drink a bottle is nothing more than a stereotype. Moscovites from middle and upper-middle class would rather drink a glass whiskey or a cocktail, than a shot of vodka.

...But if you still want to drink vodka with a Russian, remember not to sip. Never. Ever. 

Love Nature

Most of the Moscovites love to spend time out of town. We are so tired of Moscow, its buzz and crowds of people that survive in a traffic jam every Friday to get to our dachas. Yes, most of us have a summer cottage (dacha) or – at least – friends or relatives that own one. Ridiculously, dacha is not a place where you can relax. Once you buy it you start to build, plant, clean, gather, etc, etc. But the fun you can get covers all the the inconveniences of living far from town. Russian baths, shashlik (kebab), drunk-swimming in the river – you can have it all. So if you are invited to spend a weekend at a friends' dacha, don't refuse.

...And yes, dacha is a right place to drink vodka.


Walk local

If you want to unwind, go to one of the famous Moscow's parks. They are not as green as  London's famous parks or as big as New York's Central Park. But they still have an atmosphere. 
Gorky park is the capital's central park. A couple of years ago it was renovated  and now it has a free wi-fi zone, lots of space for sport and recreation and even its own beach. The Garage museum is also located there – and it's a good place to visit after The Tretyakov gallery and The Pushkin museum. 
Tsaritsyno park preserves a unique palace of Catherine the Great and other magnificent points of interest, and Kolomenskoye is famous for the Ascension church (1532, also known as The White Column), which is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Say no to stereotypes

It is said that Moscow is a very dangerous place. True, like any other big city. It is said that Moscovites are rude and unfriendly. No, some of us are just a bit shy not to speek good English. 
It is said that Russian policemen can stop you in the metro and ask for documents. Yes, they can, but believe, they are more interested in illegal immigrants than tourists. It is said it's very cold in Moscow. Yes, we have colder winters than in Europe, but hot summers – +25 – + 35 degrees. 
Open your mind and you will fall in love with Moscow – enigmatic and majestic Russia's capital. 

Act like a local: Moscow - Be Careful. Moscow is Bad.

10 Truly Romantic Destinations in Europe

I couldn’t realize how amazing London is until I finished getting back to Canberra, my hometown and the capital city of Australia. Now my love for London is no secret to everyone around me. And this love is not bottomless; it has grounds and reasons. Admittedly, there are things that I don’t like about London but that’s with every city, right. The good thing is that the good of London outweighs the bad. Plenty in London stole my heart like the history, the parks, and the tea (oh the afternoon sips). But it was the little things that I observed, made me fall in love with this city.


5 Things I Love About London



The Streets

On the streets of London lies a wealth of art, culture, and history. Turn left and you come across a wonderful art piece, turn right and you see a street performer showing his talent. London streets have become a collage of art pieces from renowned artists like Banksy, Eine, and Herakut. The appeal, romance, and poetry of the artwork overrule the fact that it’s illegal. Exposed to the depredations of urban life, these art pieces stand like wild flowers in spring, to beautify the environs as long as they live.


The talent doesn’t ends with the street art. Whilst walking through the streets of London, one often comes across a street performer, entertaining the audience. From guitar players and magicians to clowns and acrobats, many talented performers have graced the streets and continue to do so. If you want to experience the talent, Covent Garden is a good place to start with.

The Secrets

One thing about London that fascinates me the most is the mystery it nurtures. Hidden behind the veil of tourism, there is a secret London that only locals are aware of. From hidden drinking dens and caves to secret London hotels, there are plenty of things that tourists can explore other than the famous landmarks. I booked a secret hotel in London at londonhotels4u.com, and not just, I saved huge bucks, my stay there turned out to be way better than I could ever imagine. Which door or path may lead you to something quirky in London, you never know. So the idea is to move your feet and take the path. Just the other day, a random address Zero Aldwych led me to a public convenience which is in fact a secret basement bar, Cellar Door. Though, I couldn’t get a seat, as it was jam-packed.


The Food

Being a multi-cultural city, London has every cuisine found on earth-Mexican, Indian, Kiwi, and Japanese to name a few. There are thousands of restaurants serving different cuisines to suit different palates and pockets. No matter how many days you spend in London, you will find a different restaurant every time that serves your native cuisines.  It’s almost criminal to fall in love with London and not fall in love with Anglo-Indian curry. You can try lamb Saag, Gosht with Mushroom rice, and nutty Naan. So bad but yet oh so good!



The People
If you are looking for a city where you can strike up a conversation with anyone in any situation, it has to be London. It’s a very friendly city where you won’t feel like an Oprah in India.  Londoners may guide you in directions whether you ask or not. But make sure that you avoid doing a few things that might annoy them. Do not try cockney rhyming slang. Try this and you will be laughed out of the pub, as Londoners say.


The Culture

Within a few metres, you will find plenty of events going on in London. You need not put efforts to find something unique, there are plenty of things to see within your range-street performers, different language being spoken, historic architectural wonders, and modern skyscrapers.  And the best thing is that all things happening here aren’t just from here. Big international exhibitions, tradeshows, and cultural events take place here. Why? Because it’s London.

And 2 That I Hate

The Tube – Mind the Gap Message

London tube makes it dead easy to travel around the city. If you mind a few stairs along the way, may be a few hundred. And tip of the day is, do not stand on the left side of the escalator. It’s the passing lane for folk who are in a hurry. If you come in their way, you may not like the way they say ‘Mind the Gap’. And by the way, this did not happen to me. Not at all!  Another tip, it’s better to avoid tube travel during the rush hours. You don’t want to travel with 150 people in a space that’s designed for half the number. It’s miserable when you are stuck by the door struggling to fit in. Nope. This did not happen to me. This is probably what I hate about London.


The Weather

If there’s one thing unpredictable, it’s the weather in London. Summers often visit London like a naughty teenager who is often late for dinner. But it’s the biggest myth about London that it rains all the time. However, the truth is it can rain any time. 5 minutes the sun shines and 5 minutes later, there is a heavy burst of rain. Don’t waste time complaining about the weather and carry an umbrella. The sooner you accept this, the better. The idea is to be prepared if it’s in the forecast.


My visit to London turned out to be one to cherish forever. If you have ever visited London, planning to do so, or you are one of the millions living there, share what you love the most about London.
