First Throwned – Moscow, Russia

Travel Recommendations: Moscow, Russia

Length of Stay

We stayed in Moscow for three full days. We could have definitely done a week and still have more to explore. I would opt in for more time if you can.

Transportation

The public transit was really excellent. We were there during the World Cup and the major stations had sings in English in addition to Russian Cyrillic. I am not sure if that is something they plan to keep or expand.

Why Travel is Good for You

Travel!

I think everyone should travel to a different country at least once in their lifetimes. I truly believe you learn so much about yourself, how to manage stressful situations, and how to interact with other cultures—all of which can be applied to your everyday life and work life. You also learn to appreciate where you come from.

Besides a few hiccups, I would recommend renting a flat. The area is easy to get around...
