This weekend, from 10 August, Moscow will host to the world’s most elite athletes as they arrive for the World Athletics Championships. After the Olympic fever of last summer I’m sure lots of us will be tuned in but keep an eye out for Moscow’s iconic skyline in the background. I like watching athletics as much as the next person but not quite as much as I love Russia and in particular Moscow.
Moscow is a city full of contrasts – old Soviet style buildings mix with new, modern architecture and small local cafes sit next door to some of the best restaurants I’ve ever visited. Moscow hosts its own ‘championship’ collection of hotels, with ‘gold medal’ service so for a ‘bolt’ of excitement head to Moscow for a perfect weekend getaway.
For more information on a long weekend to Moscow or a holiday to Russia, I would love to help plan the perfect trip and share my passion for this amazing city, call me.
