We all know that Moscow offers visitors countless boutique hotels, luxury Michelin-starred restaurants and romantic cafes, but what about more unusual things to do? Romantic spots in Moscow include beautiful parks and gardens with breathtaking views, and many hidden places only locals know about. Here’s a list of unusual date ideas you should know about before travelling to Moscow with your better half.
Get yourself a bottle of Russian or Caucasian wine in one of the local supermarkets, buy some local fruits and cheese and head towards Gorky Park. An intimate evening is guaranteed. One of the best options would be to buy traditional Russian foods and wine at Aromatny Mir supermarket, located nearby. This activity is very popular with locals.
Moscow is full of art galleries, and entrance to most is free of charge. Head towards Winzavod contemporary art centre to see one of the expositions introduced to the public daily.
Arbat Street is considered the main art street of Moscow. Many artists and painters work outside daily, waiting for new clients. Choose the one you like and have them paint a portrait of your better half of the streets of Moscow.
Biblio Globus bookstore is considered to be one of the oldest and the best in Moscow. It consists of many floors and halls and has fiction in different languages on the second floor of the building. However, visitors usually don’t know that the store has a huge reading hall inside where you can stay for hours. Isn’t it romantic? In a local way, yes.
It’s a well-known fact that the Moscow underground is full of wonders, stories and secrets. Mayakovskaya station is considered one of the most mystical stations in the whole metropolitan underground system of Russia. It was named after famous Russian poet Vladimir Mayakosky, who lived and worked in the Tverskoy neighbourhood, right in front of the main entrance. What makes this station unique is its outstanding marble decoration in pink, blue and beige.
