Weekend Getaways from Vladimir  

Moscow, the capital of Russia, is emerging as a great layover destination with the Russian national carrier, Aeroflot, providing cheaper flights to Europe, from India, than any other carrier right now. To venture out of the city, you need a transit visa. Russia issues a transit visa for up to three days to Indian citizens on the basis of confirmed tickets and a valid visa/ passport to the final destination country or of a neighbouring Asian country. You can know more and apply for your transit visa for Russia here.What to see in Moscow?You must have at least an eight-hour long layover to explore this city.If you’re in Moscow in the morning or early afternoon, go directly to the main Red Square. The must see sites in the square are St.Basil's Cathedral and Lenin’s Mausoleum. Grab lunch at Varenichnaya, a traditional Russian restaurant serving dumplings, borscht, pork shoulder and other local delicacies.


About Vladimir

I was the first American to tour Vladimir Central Prison - located in The Golden Ring town by that name about 60 miles outside Moscow. It was fascinating to see paintings created by the prisoners lining the hallways and in the museum I saw many books on exhibit that were written by authors once imprisoned here. Vladimir Central is still a working prison.
