Biologique Recherche Around The World – Moscow
In the latest instalment of Biologique Recherche Around The World, we experience the buzz of one of Europe’s most energetic cities: Moscow. This historic destination is one of the most popular tourist spots and packed with art, lively nightlife and a very interesting past…
Where to stay
The stylish, elegant and grand, Ritz Carlton Hotel, is as central as you can get to all of Moscow’s famous tourist hotspots; the magnificent luxury suites hold the best views in the city with Red Square and the Kremlin right outside your window. With the extra option of being pampered in the peaceful spa, or being waited on hand-and-foot like royalty by your own personal butler, this is definitely one of the city’s most lavish places to stay.
Where to eat
Café Pushkin is an antique-filled dining room, turned into a beautiful 5* star restaurant. Open 24 hours a day, it was renovated to look exactly like a Russian Aristocrat’s House, even the staff speak pre-sovietised Russian (don’t worry, they speak English too!). Indulge with black caviar, Russian pancakes and borscht, and make sure you sample some of that famous Russian vodka! With outstanding customer service, you’ll feel like it’s your own living room!
What to read
Regarded as one of the most important books in literature, War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy, is a Russian and a World Classic. “War and Peace” has the best depiction of Napoleon’s invasion of Russia, but it’s about so much more than that. Everything you ever experience in life will be covered in this book and for almost every character, you’ll be able to tell yourself, “I know someone right now who is exactly like this person.” This philosophical masterpiece may take you a while to get through, but it’s well worth the journey.
The equivalent to New York’s empire state building, the Imperia Tower, is one of Europe’s tallest buildings. The observatory deck is guaranteed to set sparks flying with your loved one! Located in Moscow’s commercial district, Moscow City, the breath-taking views are not to be missed. Journeying to the 58th floor can really work up your appetite, so stop off at V Temnote for a memorable date… in the DARK! Yes, blind staff will guide you to your table and blind musicians will help set the mood for your romantic meal. The idea is that you will have a chance to experience food, and your dining partner, from another perspective. As they say, when in Rome…or Russia!
Set in one of Moscow’s most exclusive neighbourhoods, Patriach’s Ponds is a beautiful little spot, perfect in the summer for a long stroll with your lover, or ice-skating with the family in winter. Made famous by Mikhail Bulgakov’s novel, The Master and Margarita, it’s a lovely, tranquil place to escape the madness of the city.
Where to shop
For a Russian premier shopping experience with a touch of luxury, visit Red Square for the magnificent Gum shopping gallery. Organised into three open arcades, this shopping haven houses designers such as Christian Dior and Max Mara, all under a breathtakingly expansive glass skylight roof.
