Tourist Destination

The Russian capital, which is primarily a business destination, offers more reasonable accommodation in low season in summer and winter, argues Sergei Shpilko, head of Moscow's tourism committee.

"As business-class hotels aren't full in summer, this means that tourists can stay there, which for them is something they could only dream of," he says.
