As a true world city, Moscow has a whole host of attractions and this includes a number of things to do at night. If you have booked any holiday to Russia, your tour package will probably include at least two nights in this great city and if you’re looking for things to do in the evening, Moscow certainly doesn’t disappoint.

Although you might be thinking about other aspects of your Russian holiday, and browsing your highly informative Trans Siberian railroad map, it’s worth spending a bit of time trying to plan some things to do during your stay in Moscow. Although the tourist sights of Moscow are very well documented, and your daytime itinerary is complete, it’s important not to neglect the time you have in the evening. Please see below for just a few ideas of the things you can do in Moscow when the sun goes down.

Moscow by Night

Here are just a few things worth considering if you venture out into Moscow in the evening:

1. Visit Red Square – As day turns into night, Moscow’s most famous tourist attraction takes on a whole new dimension. The crowds will be gone, and you can enjoy a leisurely stroll, admiring the buildings and landscape that take on almost lucent quality. St Basil’s Cathedral looks particularly stunning at night so don’t forget your camera!

2. Take in a Performance at the Bolshoi Theatre – A visit to the Bolshoi Theatre should be on everyone’s bucket list. This world-renowned theatre is known for putting on some spectacular performances and attracts the most well-known musicians, ballet dancers and operatic performers from around the globe. Tickets are usually in high demand so make sure you book early or ask your tour operator for help.

3. Go on a Walking Tour – Another option for an evening activity in Moscow is a walking tour. Although a walking tour of the city’s sights is possible in the day, the city takes on a completely different appearance at night. With multilingual guides and flexible timings, an evening walking tour is a great activity for people of all ages.

4. Soho Rooms Nightclub – You will probably know that a section of Russian society is incredibly rich, and the Soho Rooms are where many of them come to relax in the evening. The cars in the carpark outside are literally jaw dropping and so are the regular clientele! Although dress code is officially casual, many of the patrons get dressed up to the nines, so if you want to pass security don’t forget to don your very best threads.
