    Picked a nice place for a romantic evening meeting with the stars in the center of Moscow. in the Planetarium. Inside air conditioning-pleasant coolness around-star ... beauty! Almost all programs are one hour, tickets can be purchased online. Photo and video inside is prohibited. On a summer porch is located "the sky". We recommend a visit to anyone who has a crush on arrivals.

    Were at the beginning of August, with his wife. Spent the whole day there, remembering the curriculum and spinning-twirling-inflating-looking through everything you can. It was very interesting! Took a trip to the telescope, looked at the Sun in different ways. Do not hurry to leave the tours after the end! At the site a lot of sunny hours and other objects-go take a look. But after a while will leave customers for whom cinema will hold a mini tour through this site-with a guide-very interesting! Also try to take or to join outback in the halls-without them all to understand how that works, and some devices do not include without them. Take a drink of water in kafeshkah dear. Tickets keep-during the day you can enter-go.

    Don't plan a hike in Zoos and Planetarium in one day. They are close)). If you decide to seriously familiarize yourself with the Planetarium, you need from 3 to 5:00. After restoration, it opened in 2011 and is one of the largest in the world. The Planetarium building includes several levels. At the underground level are small star Hall (designed to show kids the starry sky in miniature), 4 d cinema, interactive museum "Lunarium (Exposition on astronomy and physics). On the first level, too, is situated the Museum Exposition "Lunarium (Hall, dedicated to the history of the study of space), as well as Museum halls Urania.. On the second tier there is an Observatory with telescopes, astronomical playground "Sky Park" with a collection of working under the open sky for astronomical devices, Hall, Museum of Urania with a collection of meteorites and cejssovskim equipment. The third level is a large star room, overhead projector which allows you to see more than 9 thousands of celestial bodies and their movement across the sky over time. In the Planetarium run the guides. There is a café (expensive). Cinema 4 d. Gift shop. Ticket prices are acceptable, but if you go all-zone tickets-very expensive.

  • Really nice place. Interesting museum of astronomy, nice movies in special cinema with round screen. It seems that you are really looking in the sky. The only moment - it's difficult to buy tickets for the closest movie, so it you want to visit some specific movie buy ticket before.
  • Very scientifically-oriented, a bit old and some films are boring. But it's the best place to learn facts about universe and astronomy.
  • I really want to visit Russia, still learning russian
  • Great place to learn and relax
  • both the teather and the museum are worth visiting

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
