Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Considering that everything is written russian in moscow, it was hard to find the places of interest Local information is missing like you have to book to a bolshoy ballet 2 months in advance, and that kremlin is closed on thursdays, etc. The eating recommendations are very limited like the writer had never been to them but just recommends some well known locations. Result was that some of the recommendations were great where some was really unexpectedly expensive or in very unusual places without any warning. Some weather information and some reco on clothing would have been nice. Even some rulesnon crossing the streets and how to use the metro would be good
