Moscow is Russia’s capital and Europe’s largest city and the best way of seeing it is with the help of our Moscow car hire services. Moscow has played an important role both in European history as well as Russia’s history, it is a huge city featuring a lot of museums and large Soviet-era buildings.
If you fly into the city odds are that you will be landing at Moscow Domodedovo Airport or Sheremetyevo Airport, but the first one is more likely as it has been recently renovated and it also has a straight commuter rail link to the city. However the best method of traveling from the airport to the city is by employing our Moscow car rental services which can have the car of your choice ready for you at the airport as soon as you touch down.
It has to be mentioned though that driving through Moscow should be avoided as much as possible because the city was never designed to cope with the current number of cars and long traffic jams are the norm. If you are visiting the city then the best suggestion that can be made is to park as soon as possible in a safe place, which usually is one’s hotel and then use Moscow’s public transit. If you do have to drive through Moscow traffic then avoid the rush hours unless you want to be stuck in traffic jams that might last as long as eight hours.
One of the great things about Moscow’s main sights is the fact that they are positively huge, both in importance as well as size. Red Square for instance is usually the first place people will visit on their Moscow trip. It is located in the heart of the city and it features St. Basil’s Cathedral, the State History Museum and Lenin’s Mausoleum.
The St. Basil Cathedral houses a museum now and the Lenin Mausoleum houses Vladimir Lenin’s embalmed body.
Another of Moscow’s huge sights that you just can’t miss especially from Red Square is The Kremlin. This is a historic fortified area located in the center of the city, it includes four palaces, four cathedrals and of course the Kremlin Wall with its towers.
These are only a few of the many sights that Moscow has to offer, ranging from museums to a variety of churches to attending one of the circuses, without even mentioning the fact that its metro stations are unique in their own; Moscow has a lot to offer and you can try experimenting as much of it as possible with our Moscow car hire services.
