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.
Local people have got used to heavy tourist traffic and numerous city guests and feel no excitement over them. However those tourists who visit the capital city for the first time should keep in mind several important features. When advice is needed tourists should better address the city visitors as they are rather than local folks as in this case a chance to get useful advice and necessary help is much higher.
travelers should better join guided group tours to explore the city rather than setting off to the tour alone as finding a way to some local landmarks is rather challenging. Many tourists try to get to Moscow on the New Year’s eve as during this period Moscow features mass scale folk festivals. Great musical and theatrical performances, entertaining events for kids, plenty of souvenir shops and attractive open air cafes fill the city squares, parks and streets on the eve of the fest turning the city into a great entertaining center.
