Christmas and New Year holidays season is one of the best times to visit Moscow.
I invite you to walk with me along the luminous city to feel the magic of a Russian winter and through one of the oldest quarters of Moscow, the Kitay Gorod neighborhood strolling the ancient Nikolskaya Street. Today, this main street of the capital is full of life. It is the cultural center of the city. This time of year Moscow turns into a wonderland of snow.
You will learn about the history of New Year and Christmas celebrations in Russia, uncover why Russians celebrate Christmas in January but exchange presents on New Year’s night, we will talk about Russian customs and traditions and festive Russian food.
Get your hot holiday drink and walk with me along Moscow glowing lights!
