Moscow was beautiful in the winter when I visited, and despite the cold, I think it's a great season to go in to get a true Russian Winter experience. The Kremlin is like something out of Candyland, and definitely looks other worldly when snow is falling around it. Still, it's an expensive city, and don't expect a lot of smiling.Recommended for:Local Culture

Even though I went in December, I enjoyed walking around Moscow and seeing how rich this city is in culture, food, architecture and above all history. Moscow is a city still in transition, and still relatively closed off -- despite being the capital of Russia and a sprawling metropolis, it gets about 1.5 million visitors per year (San Francisco, by contrast, gets around 16 million visitors per year, according to the city's travel association). It's also home to a growing arts scene, where artists are taking over former factories and displaying some of the most creative and innovative art in the world.

The mix of Soviet, European and new industrial architecture along with Communist decoration splashed with Capitalist adverts is immediately fascinating and, ultimately, addictive. I felt so proud when I started to pick up a little Cyrillic and loved the passionate arts culture and slightly off-the-wall feeling.

There isn't a place in Russia that you will feel more like you are standing on the pulse center of a unique world. There are so many things to do, historical, cultural, modern, art, fashion, and sports. It's amazing how much there is to do, and how easy it is to get around and do it.

Been almost twenty years, but Moscow is a wonderful city. Not as European as St Pete and the Stalinist brutality is still in evidence (particularly in the architecture), but still incredible.

The first time I arrived in Moscow it was snowing. The atmosphere was soft and everything was covered by a white layer. I was going from the airport to the city center by taxi and could admire the stunning buildings and large steets. it was love a first sight. Moscow is wide and fascinating. Maybe a little gray, but also alive and interesting.

Moscow might be the most culture shock I've ever experienced. It doesn't cater to western tourists at all. The map I'd bought in the States was anglicized, something I didn't realize would be a problem until I got to Russia, where everything was cyrllic. Still, I had a wonderful time.

I was fortunate to go there when family lived there, and good thing because that language barrier is something else. But if you're like me, a kid who grew up during the Cold War, visiting Moscow is a dream you never thought would be reality. Tremendous history and culture. And go to the KGB Museum!
