||Committee for Tourism of the Moscow City Government was founded on October 1st, 1998, in accordance with the Order of the Moscow Mayor. The Committee was established as an independent structure, governing the tourism area only, in accordance with the recommendations of the World Tourism Organisation. Gregory Antioufeev has been appointed Chairman of the Committee.
The Committee employs 20 persons.
The Committee is mainly aimed at:
Forming a positive image of Moscow abroad. And attracting more guests to Moscow.
Developing city's tourism infrastructure.
One of the main goals of the Committee is to increase the income of the city budget from tourism.
In brief the Committee's position can be defined as follows: "Tourism should be beneficial for the Muscovites, the City and through Moscow for the whole of Russia".
Gregory Antioufeev believes that Moscow should become a world tourism centre without which world tourism would be impossible to imagine
||There are few cities worldwide that resonate with history and culture the way Moscow does. Whether you find yourself admiring St Basil's Cathedral and the ancient walls of the Kremlin in Red Square, staring up in awe at one of Stalin's seven ugly sisters, heading out to the Bolshoi for a night of magic and bedazzlement, or even hanging out at the Patriarch's ponds on the off-chance of running into the Devil. . . Wherever you go and whatever you do in this town, you are bound to feel an almost palpable aura of drama, intrigue, passion, politics and downright skullduggery pervading every breath of frosty air.
||Moscow is a living museum to a millennium of political, religious and cultural history. Moscow can be an overwhelming experience for visitors - there's just so much to see in this vast and vibrant city, from the truly sublime to the ever-so-slightly ridiculous. Follow our virtual guide to find the essential sites in Russia's capital.
||Expect serious shopaholics to start hyperventilating once they enter the extraordinary malls and upmarket boutiques in the city centre. All the big name brands are here, plus some seriously pricey local producers too. Russians like to look good and are prepared to spend top rouble for the right trinkets, so join the big spenders in the exclusive malls or head down to the vast warehouses in the suburbs to dig out some cheap electronic goods, bargain-basement DVDs and software from some less-than-reliable sources. All good fun!
||Despite the many changes to sweep Russia in recent years, the only souvenir one must take home is (still) the famous Matryoshka doll. That would be the doll inside a doll inside a doll inside. . . And the best place to get a Matryoshka doll is at Izmailovsky Market, which is best reached via the dark blue line on the metro to Izmailovsky Park. Keep your wallet buried under several layers of clothing, and do not miss the shashlik (Russian barbeque). Side note: While strolling on the Old Arbat, you may notice the many vendors selling Matryoshka dolls. Do not be a tourist and buy one. It will cost you two or three times the price at Izmailovsky.
