Life in Moscow

Things to Do in Moscow:

Every year, on the third Saturday of May, Russia celebrates Park Day. This year, the holiday falls on May 18, and Moscow parks have some action-packed events in store.
May 17
Coming up on the heels of Park Day, May 18 marks Museum Night in Moscow. With every year, the event gets bigger and bigger, and it’s hard not to get lost in the schedule’s plentiful offerings. Read on for a summary of select events that will take place on the night of May 18. Museums offer unusual excursions and concerts in honor of the event, so Museum Night is not to be missed. Admission to many of the events is free, but be prepared for long queues at some of the more popular venues.
May 17
Moscow’s world-famous museums, such as the Tretyakov Gallery and the Pushkin Art Museum, are so popular that it is not uncommon to see long queues snaking around the buildings, especially when there are major temporary exhibitions. We’ve put together a list of our favourite museums that lie a little off the beaten path, but are definitely worth a visit. In this first installment of our museum guide, we have compiled a list of some cool technology-related museums that will certainly pique your interest.
April 29
On April 28, Orthodox believers in Russia celebrate Easter. The holiday has some interesting traditions, some which are followed not only by religious people, but by the wider public throughout the country.
April 25
An exhibition of works by the famed Norwegian expressionist Edvard Munch (1863–1944) at the Tretyakov Gallery provides viewers the most comprehensive display of the artist’s legacy to ever be presented in Moscow.
April 24
Moscow is known for its urban sprawl, expansive parks, picturesque metro and cold winters. What it is less known for is its hot dancing scene for tropical rhythms such as salsa. As a music aficionado, this aspect of the city’s life has come most to my attention.
