Moscow for Kids



Description:

Like any major metropolis, Moscow was not designed with kids in mind. This particular concrete jungle features high levels of pollution, bureaucracy and depraved luxury, not family entertainment. However, with a little planning, and a lot of moving around, you can have a kid-friendly trip to Russia’s capital. Keep the young ones happy with this three-day itinerary which stops at museums, the zoo and the famous Moscow Circus!

Day 1 - Moscow


Il Patio isn’t fancy, but it’s a good, cheap place to get loaded up on pasta and pizza. First stop is the Moscow Zoo, which has delighted young and old for a hundred years. After meeting the elephants, bears and camels, head over to the Doll Gallery – unfortunately, the kids can look, but not touch. Early dinner is at Starlite Diner, a colorful American theme restaurant with fun options for fussy eaters. Finally, before the sun goes down, catch a puppet show.

Day 2 - Moscow, Moskva


Day 2 starts on busy Tverskaya, Moscow’s main street full of shops, restaurants and squares. You’re eating Russian food at the family chain Elki-Polki – the folksy interior will charm little ones hesitant to try new food. Take the metro up to the VVTs, a large park with carnival rides and rollerblades to rent. There’s one giant Ferris Wheel here with a view of the city. Take in the big Moscow Circus, followed by dinner at Pancho Villa, a lively Mexican restaurant in the south of the city.

Day 3 - Moscow


The last day starts with an educational focus. Touch the dolphins at the Dolphinarium, then learn more about animals at the State Biology Museum. Ride the metro down to the far south for an afternoon at Tsaritsyno, a fantastical landscaped park where you can ride paddleboats in warm weather. After dinner at Mama Zoya, a family-style Georgian restaurant on a boat, spend the evening at Gorky Park’s carnival attractions.
