Frequently asked questions about flying to Moscow

Moscow is a historic and architecturally fantastic destination that welcomes visitors from across the globe. The city has very distinct seasons. The humid continental climate offers warm to hot summers, brief but glorious spring and fall seasons, and long, frigid winters. If you decide to make a winter trip to Moscow, be prepared for temperatures that dip to average lows of 14 – 21 degrees Fahrenheit. Pack the warmest gear you own! Fewer tourists visit during Moscow’s winter, so you may find better pricing on flights and accommodation. As spring slowly warms, the tourist count grows, and it becomes quite busy by May, when high temperatures of 68 degrees Fahrenheit are comfortable. Summer is peak tourist season in Moscow, with long days for sightseeing and temperatures of 72 – 78 degrees Fahrenheit. If you visit in summer, make sure to book your flights and rooms well in advance and expect to pay higher prices. In September and early October, before the cold sets in, Moscow enjoys a splendid fall season, and there are fewer travelers, so this might be the best time to plan your visit.

How old do you have to be to fly to Moscow?

Although the minimum age for a child to fly alone is five, airlines that offer an unaccompanied minor (UMNR) service may have their own age limits, which could be impacted by factors such as flight length, timing, and layovers. It is recommended that you verify with the airline you are booking with for travel to Moscow.

What documentation or ID do you need to fly to Moscow?

The travel and health documents required for your trip to Moscow can vary based on your itinerary and personal situation. As a rule, consider having multiple documents such as a national ID card or driver’s license, and a passport valid for six-months after you plan to arrive at Moscow. We always recommend checking with your airline or a trusted third party such as IATA to get advice.


How to travel around Moscow

Moscow is an immense city, and the best way to get around is undoubtedly the amazing metro system. In fact, the metro stations themselves are a tourist attraction; several have been designated as cultural heritage sites. The city also offers an impressive above ground transportation network of buses, trams, and trolleys, light rail and an elevated monorail. Traffic congestion in Moscow can be terrible, so you may want to leave your rental car parked until needed for out-of-town trips. Travel on the city’s public transportation options is easily managed with a multi-fare pass, called the unified travelcard. It offers unlimited trips for 24 hours, 3 days, or a week, on buses, trolleys, trams, the metro, Moscow Central Circle rail and the monorail. The prices are ₽210 RUB, ₽400 RUB and ₽800 RUB respectively.

Best things to do and see in Moscow

Things to do and places of interest in Moscow

Moscow is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful cities in the world, and well worth seeing. From the stunning, onion-domed St. Basil’s Cathedral to the sleek modern structures in the city’s new business district, you’d be hard-pressed to find another place with so many contrasting skylines. Here are a few of the sights and activities worth adding to your itinerary, when you travel to Moscow.

  • Stroll around Red Square, the heart and soul of Russia. One of the most historically significant sites in the world, Moscow’s cobbled central square is surrounded by other must-see sights, including the Kremlin, St. Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin’s Mausoleum, and more.
  • You could spend days exploring the Kremlin, the biggest medieval fortress in Russia, which also happens to be the largest active fortress in all of Europe. Within its 2,235-meter-long walls, there are 5 squares and 18 buildings, 20 towers, and the world’s largest bell and cannon.
  • Pick up some souvenirs at GUM. The glass-roofed mall is home to over 200 upscale shops, several great eateries, a Soviet-style grocery store – Gastronom №1 – and the swankiest historic toilet you’ll ever see.
  • Every world-class city has a significant park, and Moscow’s is Gorky Park. Originally opened in 1928, in 2011 Gorky Park underwent a major design upgrade and now has a renewed, vibrant look. The park sees around 20,000 visitors every day.
  • Take a Moscow Metro Tour and visit the 12 stations listed as cultural heritage sites. The Metro opened in 1935 and was one of the USSR’s most extravagant architectural projects. Most of the central stations look like museums, with their own ambiance, embellishments, and story.
  • Take in a ballet or opera performance at the historic Bolshoi Theatre. This structure is a landmark of Moscow and Russia, and is depicted on the Russian 100-rouble banknote.

Tips and tricks for visiting Moscow

Avoid the people who approach you offering taxi services immediately after getting through customs. Even though they may be wearing uniforms that say, “official airport taxi”, they are usually illegal taxi services. These taxis can cost much more than the official taxis because they don’t have set prices.

DON’T order vodka with orange juice or tonic! You might be breaking an obscure Russian law, or at the very least, you risk being considered uncivilized by the Russian bartender. Vodka may be chased with lemon or a pickle, and must be drunk swiftly, not sipped.
