Traditions, Lifestyle & Habits in Moscow

One of the curious features of the Moscow city which most foreign tourists frequently notice is crowds of people in the streets and thousands of cars on the roads. Cruising the city by car following the central roads is rather challenging during the day that is why tourists should be accurate in choosing the right time for tours and city exploration. The most favorable time for distant tours is Sunday morning when the city changes enormously. Sunday morning will also be a pleasant time for hiking as this is the time when Moscow sinks in serenity and silence.

The New Year holidays are impossible to imagine without great pyrotechnic shows. The most beautiful and impressive fireworks can be witnessed in the New Year night on the Red Square. The breath taking event attracts tens of thousands of visitors. The same attractive and exciting ethnic fest is the Maslenitsa festival. This scale event is followed by many original entertainments and attractions.

The main symbol of Maslenitsa is still the flats or Russian blinis. Tourists can try and taste this ethnic treat in any of the city restaurants during the festival. However many guests and local folks give preferences to open air cafes for blinis tasting.
