Reviews of Culture in Moscow
WOW THAT IS SO COOL I WANT TO VISIT THANKS FOR THIS HELP FOR MY REPORT
Red square is just amazing even if you don't speak Russian Roy from Cyprus
Dzień dobry, nazywam się Mateusz Jóźwiak. Piszę do Państwa z pytaniem, otóż na strychu znalazłem tomik wierszy w języku rosyjskim wydany w 1867roku, czy chcieli by Państwo kupić ode mnie ten tomik?
It is a beautiful structure and as I survey its majestic likeness in a photograph, it reminds me of my Russian ancestry, and makes me long to return once again.
fantastic place to be , also and you can feel safe if you can speak russian.
An excellent Gallery in all respects. I spent 8 hours there on a rainy day in September 2010 and throughly enjoyed it.
Great museum, a must for all space enthusiasts! Lots of paraphernalia, very well exhibited. Very easy to get to: right next to the metro station.
Really interesting museum but with lots of amazing exhibits and stories. Unfortunately I couldn't understand any of it as it was all in Russian. A real shame as a bit of text in a common language (English/Spanish/French) would have really made it. Definitely worth a visit though.
It was the highlight of my stay in Moscow.
I really like NASA stuff, so when I'm in Moscow, I'll have to check this out. Probably quite different, I'm guessing.
Absolutely a must-do in Moscow. It's a cultural sensation.
very good looking
RUSSIA IS AWESOME
my russian friend took me here... very interesting museum!! check it out
Retro and awesome! I love this kind of stuff so had a great time. Learned a lot from a distinctly Russian perspective... fascinating!
I love Moscow and the moment I stepped onto the Red Square I knew it was for real! Love it!
Best seen from a distance. A quite marvellous building perfectly placed in the rear of the square. Went inside, the best part was listening to a choir singing. Otherwise not so very interesting.
The Bolshoi Theatre lived up to all my (incredibly high) expectations. It really must be scene... i don't care if it's a cliche. A trip to Moscow without the Bolshoi ballet is not complete
I went to Moscow 7 times all in the USSR.it was very beautiful city
i'm looking forward to the December Nights festival already!
From ticket purchase to curtains down its an experience of a lifetime!
Pushkin Fine Arts Museum is definitely one of the best in Moscow, if not Russia. Even if you're only in town for a few days, you should put this museum on your things to do list.
I visited the museum in summer '07 - and was astounded at the prolific amount and style of his work. Definitely in the very large scale but allows the viewer to change perspective on life being miniscule in comparison to the scale of the works.

Fantastic old museum. Retro but cool. Fantastic socialist reliefs on the rocket monument outside. Worth the trip north for the Cosmonaut museum
Amazing!!! Everything you imagine it would be. St Basil's is the most spectacular piece of architecture in Moscow
I was there in 1987 with a college group. It was different experience to say the least. I found this site wondering if it was still open to the public since the fall of Communism.
I had the pleasure of being in this theatre in May 2002, for the "Swan Lake" ballet. This theatre is awesome, comfortable, nice acoustic, etc. When you add this theatre with the Russian artists, you get an unforgettable experience.
Excellent historical museum, from prehistoric time up until the Russian Revolution. Two floors, 2nd floor prehistoric - 1700, 3rd floor 1700ish - 1900 (Alexander III). English tour book (200R) for second floor only (they don't have a 3rd floor book in Russian yet either). Well worth the time, excellent exhibits, especially the military halls. If you are a history buff, a must see. Takes about 1 - 1 1/2 hours. Separate fee to take non-flash pics, and if you don't look Russian, the little old ladies will want to see your camera pass(75R). Combo pass for this mueseum and St. Basil's, camera pass good for both. Nice way to spend some time around Red Square.
It's easy to be overwhelmed by the Red Square - St Basil's Cathedral alone is astonishing. But tucked away in the corner is a smaller, more intimate church which is well worth the visit. Entirely reconstructed in the early 1990s, the Kazan Cathedral is an intimate and "working" church, home to dozens of people praying, dropping in on their way home from work to light a candle, and bemused tourists. The intricacy and delicacy of the interior decor contrasts well against the exuberant external colours. There is a true feeling of spirituality in this little chapel which I thought was very special indeed.
Holy replicaView place
Magnificent architecture and steeped in history.. But the Lenin mausoleum, housing one of history's greatest, was the sobering and awesome highlight...
If you're not in Moscow for very long then this place is not a priority - but if you're on the Arbat and it's raining then its worth a quick sniff around...more for the house than the exhibits which are mainly tiny sketches
I was talking about the Mausoleum btw, not the whole Square - which you can walk around at leisure!
A moscow must! Lot's of queuing involved (you don't have to take a tour guide, just join the line down the bottom of the square), and you're in out in seconds, but its a surreal experience you won't forget!
Not much to look at from the inside, and often has some scaffolding on the outside. Still absolutely brilliant. I took about forty photos!
I love this place. The views from the bridge on the other side are awesome too!

Please note: The Bolshoi Theater's main stage is closed for extensive reconstruction at the mo., confining its company to the 900-seat Bolshoi New Stage for most performances - plus occasional evenings in the monstrous Kremlin Palace!
Nice museum, in a curious kind of way. A lot of the exhibits are models rather than the real things (presumably because they are 'lost in space'), but still worth the short trip north. Amusingly when we tried to take a photo we were told we had to buy a special pass, but only seconds after we politely demurred, the very same attendant was insisting that we posed for a shot in front of Yuri Gargarin - while she manned the camera! Then she went off and fined an American guy with a cam-corder!!! Must be our English charm....
