Location & Directions

Moscow, Russia

The Kremlin and the Red Square, as well as the legendary Bolshoi Theatre, are just a 5-minute walk from the hotel. Lubyanka Metro Station is only steps away. Belorussky Train Station is 4 km from Nikolskaya Kempinski Moscow, and Sheremetyevo International Airport is a 35-minute express train ride from this station.

When to go

The main tourist season is between June and August, when the weather is the warmest. Standout seasons to visit Moscow are late spring (May or June) and early autumn (September or October), when the city’s parks are filled with flowering trees or colorful leaves.

The deepest, darkest part of winter is undeniably cold but if you are prepared it can be an adventure. Furs and vodka keep people warm and snow-covered landscapes are picturesque. A solid snowpack covers the ground from November to March. The city gets fired up to ring in the New Year, when Muscovites emerge from their warm homes into the winter night for free concerts and fireworks.
