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 Yaroslavsky Station
We were going to board our train at the Yaroslavsky station, located on a big square (everything is big in Moscow!) that has three of Moscow’s nine train stations: the Leningradsky station which goes to St. Petersburg, the Kazansky station which heads to the south of Russia, and of course, the Yaroslavsky. Kay and I boarded the train to Ekaterinburg (sometimes spelled Yekaterinburg) late in the afternoon on Day 1 of our adventure.
