Moscow's restaurant scene has changed drastically in recent years, but only for the best. International and well-established restaurateurs like Michelin-starred Italian chef Uilliam Lamberti and the fellows behind the global Ginza Project have expanded their Moscow holdings, dabbling with new styles to offer playful food of reliable quality.
In Moscow, you work like a dog, but party like a boss. The nightlife reputation in this lively capital precedes itself: we have the most extravagant clubs, the most gorgeous women, the most stone-cold face control, and the freest-flowing liquor.
Though we hope you spend your time in Moscow either working or having fun, sometimes not everything goes according to plan. Whether for a routine check-up or for a particular medical problem, there are a great many medical centers around the capital for you to consult with qualified health professionals about whatever you need.
For those with families, living abroad can be even more challenging: suddenly, you have to worry about not only adapting to a new language and a different culture yourself, but how growing up in a foreign land will affect your kids as well.
One of the best ways to immerse yourself in local culture is to take part in its festivals and celebrations. Russia's love of museums, music, light, art, and fireworks are put on vibrant display during various seasonal festivals.
