Maybe the capital of Russia is not one of the most popular, Holiday destination, but for sure it is Worth to be visited. The colorful history of Moscow is the reason why plenty of great monuments are available in there. But how to organize the trip to save some cash for sightseeing? And which attraction no one should miss?
Year by year we have more connections available from Poland to Russia, especially Moscow. You can use regular carriers, but a lot cheaper will be to try with smaller, international carriers. If you start to plan the trip half a year before the holiday, you got a huge chance to find plane ticket in reasonable price. The best is to start your journey from Warsaw, it is the cheapest option. Another think you have to have in mind is accommodation. Russia is very expensive for Polish citizens, that is why you should look for any chance to spare some money. Fortunately at the area of entire Moscow you can find small and cheap hostels. If you book a room in there it will be in very reasonable price. But remember, in hostel there is a big chance, that you will have to share a room with another travelers.
