The excitement of this monumental city is the excitement of change clashing with tradition, and this is the time to be there - particularly now that visitors can travel independently. But it is not an easy city, which is why I commissioned this book as a guide to its confusing streets. In these pages are the recommendations of a local host - a young Muscovite herself - who has put together day-by-day itineraries designed to show you something of everything. The Kremlin, St. Basil's and Red Square are here, as well as the GUM department store, the new flea markets and details of how to get tickets for the Bolshoi. Importantly, she also selects hidden bars and restaurants with each itinerary, and explores the new nightlife scene.Insight Pocket Guide: Moscow is one of a new series of books in which a local expert selects the best of his or home city or region. These Pocket Guides complement my award-winning list of 180 Insight Guides - comprehensive, informative and magnificently illustrated.
