World Traveller September 2019



A hotspot for travellers from the Middle East, Russia is proving to be a popular holiday destination this year – not

least for its cooler temperatures. The capital, Moscow, offers a compelling mix of excellent food, exciting shopping,

beautiful streets, and eye-catching buildings alongside an impressive art and theatre scene. No visit would be

complete, however, without a trip to the iconic Red Square, where much of the country’s history unfolded.

Highlights 1 Catch the world’s first fully immersive virtual-reality-enhanced exhibition 'Goncharova and Malevich: In Three Dimensions',

running until 20 December at Tretyakov Gallery. 2 Journey south to Tsaritsyno, a vast palace complex once home to Catherine the Great.

3 Take a stroll along Arbat, an elegant promenade lined with cafés, musical performers and stalls brimming with keepsakes.
