There will be several hundred wooden houses in the frosty air scented with candied fruits, roasted chestnuts, bakery and mulled wine. Going on a trip to Christmas Moscow the guests of the city can indulge themselves and find the answers to the eternal questions: what presents to choose for the New Year, how to surprise their dearest one, what to do during the New Year’s holidays.
