The article is written by Evans Lily The world’s most anticipated holidays are once again upon us. Most people around the world work from January to December with one eye on these holidays; Christmas and New Year’s Day. If you are one to travel during these holidays, you might be facing a tough decision to make on where to visit in search of a magical Christmas and New Year’s Day experience. While there are many majestic places in the world to fill you with anticipation, this time you should make a point of traveling to Russia which is home to some of the most amazing places in the world. If this comes as a surprise, I don’t blame you; Russia is massively underrated on the travel and tourism front. In this article, I will share with you the best places around Russia to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Day. Let’s get this show on the road, shall we?
Written by Daria Fomina For Russians no holiday can beat New Year. What is arguably the most important night of the year is followed by a 10-day-break and requires a lot of preparation. So pop up a bottle of champagne, peel a tangerine and read our ultimate guide for an authentic New Year experince.
Despite all those globalization processes and theories of “melting pots” and open borders, division and even separation, are what we have been seeing for many centuries. Social inequality was prosperous in the feudal system. But, little has changed since that time. Interestingly, the bigger the city, the more inequality the society experiences. Moscow is not an exception. Millions of us live in the same city, but ones will never meet others, because they belong to different social classes.
A quarter of a century is a very, very long time for a nightlife establishment not just in Moscow, but in the entire world. Few manage to stay afloat - or relevant - for several years, let alone two and a half decades. Yet that is exactly what the legendary night club Night Flight has managed to achieve in its exactly 25 years history!
Starting the construction of a desirable residence, the solid foundation is the first thing we should think about; planting the flowers, primarily, we should provide them with a fertile soil. Obviously, the future of a successful person starts from a good education in the childhood. Visiting the Rosinka Campus of the International School of Moscow, I perceived that better than ever.
Along with social networks, weekend travels and online shopping, doing sports has become a worldwide trend. The leading universities and research centers regularly issue reports on positive impact of sports on human’s health and life duration. According to Cambridge University scientists, running helps brain grow and memory improve. The Copenhagen City Heart Study showed that jogging a couple of days in a week results in a lower mortality rate.
Over the past few years Moscow’s favorite park has become more than just a place of leisure and sport. It now boasts an impressive selection of eateries that suit any budget, taste and relaxation style. My Destination presents a guide to the yummiest and coolest joints in Gorky Park
As some of you may know, several months ago Moscow joined the ranks of cities where pub crawls are arranged. Of course, the team of My Destination couldn’t stay on the sidelines. We’ve decided to get to know what these pub crawls actually mean and to release an article to share with you, as it usually happens. But not this time.
