Moscow: a new look at the city
What is Moscow really like? Bustling energy, impressive architecture, stylish youth, exquisite cuisine and interiors, endless roads, and the beauty of life. This city of contrasts marries the splendor of heritage with a cosmopolite spirit of a cutting-edge megapolis.
We are in love with Moscow, and we believe that no standard package vacation can fully reveal its unique diversity. That is why we came up with lots of ideas to let you feel Moscow from the inside and see this world capital through the eyes of its residents. Share with us the experiences you are willing to try, and we will do everything to make your stay truly unforgettable.

The Bolshoi Theatre is amongst the world’s most famous ballet and opera theatres. For several centuries it has been home for the best Russian and world artistic troupes. We invite you to see the splendor of the Bolshoi Theatre as a spectator… and sneak behind the scenes afterwards!
Enjoy the inner sanctum of the Bolshoi Theatre, taking a peek at the dressing rooms, standing on the historical stage, attending the ballet rehearsal before the performance – witnessing everything hidden from an ordinary spectator – and enjoy an opera or a ballet performance later on.
