On Leaving Moscow
Each of the city's three airports has its own unique features and history, but transport to the city is standard between them. Each is served by the world-famous Metro train system, which runs as often as every thirty seconds in some locations. The Metro will take you from the airport to your destination in Moscow in about thirty minutes for a fare of around 305 RUB. Private taxis service all three airports, and rides to Moscow generally cost around 3035 RUB. Bus lines also run from stations at all three ports and charge from 152 to 212 RUB for the hour-long trip.
The Climate in Moscow
Russia's capital city is located inland on the Eurasian plains. As a result, it has dry and sometimes extremely cold weather. Average temperatures in December are -8°C, and rarely rise above freezing. July is considerably warmer at 15°C, but temperatures occasionally rise as high as 25°C. July is also the rainiest month for the city, with an average rainfall of three inches. During the rest of the year, most of Moscow's precipitation comes from snow.
Things to Do in Moscow
Once the site of executions and massive military parades, Red Square, which lies at the heart of Moscow, now attracts visitors to reminders of Russia's past, such as Lenin's Tomb. It also draws shoppers looking for a bargain at GUM, the world's largest department store, which is located directly across from the tomb. Tours of the Metro and its beautiful, elaborately designed stations are popular for tourists who marvel at the massive scale of the system. One attraction Moscow is especially proud of is the State Tretyakov Gallery, which has over 150,000 art exhibits on display and is open to the public during normal business hours.
