Tverskaya Street (Ulitsa), Moscow

3.6
#4 of 10 in Neighborhoods in Russia
Take in the apex of Moscow's entertainment, nightlife, shopping, and dining with a stroll along Tverskaya Street (Ulitsa). Often said to be one of the most expensive streets in Europe, it is home to many of the city's exclusive hotels, restaurants, and shops. The street dates back to the 12th century, and during the imperial period was the route by which the tsars returned to their Kremlin residence from the northern capital. Keep an eye out for the three examples of Stalinist architecture from the 1930s: the constructivist Izvestia Building in Pushkin Square, the modernist Central Telegraph Building, and the "black cube" of the Lenin Institute in Tverskaya Square. Walking this street is preferable to driving, as traffic can make traveling it very challenging.

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.
