Description

Nobody covers the world like Lonely Planet.' --New York Post

Go one better than Napoleon, and conquer Moscow, with Lonely Planet’s City Guide on your iPhone. The largest city in Europe, galloping headlong from its communist past, and now home to the world’s highest number of billionaires, the Russian capital almost defies description. This is definitely one megalopolis that shouldn’t be tackled without the world’s leading travel publisher in your pocket. From the blooming domes of St Basil’s to the Pushkin Fine Arts Museum and the legendarily expensive nightclub scene, we’ve done the hard yards so you won’t miss a thing.

Let’s set the picture: you’re tired and hungry after a day trawling the museums and art galleries of Khamovniki, but have no idea where to recharge. Just whip out your iPhone, check your exact location on our intelligent maps, and filter- or text-search for the best bars and cafes within walking distance. Or perhaps you’re on the train from St Petersburg, and you want to get the lowdown on Moscow’s tumultuous history, plus some idea of what’s happening in today’s city? Just scroll through our authoritative history, culture and local lore chapters. And don’t worry about tacking roaming data costs onto your Muscovite splurge: our apps never connect without plenty of warning. Smart!
