I'll be in Moscow from April 13th-18th. Besides the red square and garden, any 'must-sees'? I like to drink and explore. I'd also like to celebrate Easter when I'm there any good places? Thanks

For drinks I, personally, prefer the Tap&Barrel pub (http://tbpub.ru/), nice ales and beer, cuisine is very good. For strong drinks - sorry, not an expert.

For souvenirs - a great place is IZMAILOVO art fair ( subway station Partizanskaya). Go closer to 3-4 p.m. - you will get good bargains before they close.

A must-see is also the sightseeing platfrom near the Moscow University on Vorobyovi Hills - you will see the panoramic view of Moscow. For Easter - if you want to see the night service - I recommend to visit one at a monastery. Any monastery is great for that. there will be lots of Easter city fairs in those days, downtown.

Hi! If you are up for a walk downtown Moscow this is the trip for the 1st day. Start with Red Square. Then - on the opposite side from St.Basils Cathedral the main city street starts - Tverskaya street.. Just walk up along the street. If you walk on the right side of the street - the first right turn is a nice little walk-street with lots of cafes with different cuisines. If you walk further up the Tverskaya street - you will come to Pushkin monument. To your right and to the left from the Pushkin mounment and Tverskaya street there the Mosocw Boulevarg Ring starts. You can walk along the boulevards - both ways to choose are great and go to wonderful places. If you choose the boulevards on your left from the Pushkin monument you will finally (20-25 minutes walk) come to the Pushkin Museum of Arts, Moskva River and the great Cathedral of Christ the Saviour and to your left from there you wil see the Kremlin again! So - it will be a great walk for the first day.
