Moscow - cold but with the occasional thaw
There is so much to see in Moscow, from red square to the many churches or stores, or just wandering Gorky Park. Transport on the metro makes getting around the city. The people can be quite cold (like the weather) but if you take the time to make friends they are exceptionally warm and friendly. The range of food is pretty limited with good international cuisine being difficult to find. We found some of the younger people to be more easy to get to know, and happy to share their views on things.
Insider Tip:If the weather is good, its nice to wander Gorky Park. There was a cafe there that made fantastic coffee and strudels.
