November 23, 2019 14:07


In the first half of 2019, 11.5 million foreign guests visited the Russian capital - this is almost a third more than the same period last year. Most of the tourists are from China, Germany, France, Italy and Israel.

In general, most often foreign visitors want to see the Kremlin and the historic city center, as well as  metro stations, the main building of Moscow State University, the Moscow City complex, the Ostankino TV tower, Gorky Park, VDNKh, the Pushkin Museum, the Tretyakov Gallery, the Victory Museum on Poklonnaya Hill, and the Cosmonautics Museum.

As for the preferences of tourists from different countries, travelers from the USA, Australia, Great Britain and South Africa are most often interested in the history of the city and Russian cuisine, they love the Bolshoi Theater. Asian and Indian tourists like to go to the circus. Everyone loves folklore programs.

Spanish and Portuguese-speaking travelers come to Moscow with a desire to see the country's symbols - Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral, the Kremlin, and are also interested in the Luzhniki Stadium.

All tourists are surprised that there are a lot of parks in the capital and   Moscow is a green city. Many of them  want to visit Gorky Park and Kolomenskoye. In addition, they are very interested in space: the Cosmonautics and Aviation Center is a great example of a modern interactive museum.

Guides note that many travelers ask if Moscow is a safe city. Tourists are also interested in social issues: education, health, family. For example, they ask how many Muscovites usually have children in a family, at what age people get married, how they spend their free time, how they survive the cold winter.

As for French-speaking travelers, Belgians and French are most interested in culture. Many of them perceive what they see through the prism of Russian literature. Canadians often care about the Soviet period. Guests from Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria – trade and shopping. Swiss - statistics, education, and medicine.
