Visiting the Friendly and Lively Moscow

Travel & Destinations

There are hardly any other cities in Europe that can boast the variety in rich contrasts that Moscow boasts. During the individual seasons, the climate in Moscow causes temperatures and weather to be drastically different for each individual season. For this very reason, it’s best to travel based on your personal preferences. Spring, however, is one of the less extreme seasons, making it ideal for most travelers when it comes to both temperatures and weather. During the months of May and June, you can expect pleasant weather and temperatures of 20°C (or around 68°F), with few rainy days and a lot of sunshine to enjoy. For those who prefer the snowier weather, traveling between November and February will be the best choice of months to visit during.

Moscow Metro

Few cities can boast the culture and entertainment values that Moscow offers to those who visit. Visitors can make use of the Moscow Metro, giving them access to the city quickly from many different points of access. The Moscow Metro has impressive architecture throughout its system, making it a sight to behold in its own right, as well as a quick means of transit to over 200 stations throughout the city. The train can be a bit of an adventure, however, due to the signs all being in Cyrillic characters. Network maps, on the other hand, are available in Latin script, but can still often pose an issue for those who can’t read them. Asking for assistance on knowing which stops to get off at is very commonplace for travelers.

Red Square

Some of the places to visit for those looking for some excitement are the Red Square (a central place that combines various styles of architecture found throughout the city in one place, and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990), the Pushkin State Music of Fine Arts (boasting a variety of artists such as Peter Paul Rubens, Vincent Van Gogh, and Lucas Cranach, as well as sculptures and relics from various epochs), the Kremlin (one of the oldest parts of Moscow and home to many royals over its history), and the Tsaritsyno Park (one of the more relaxing park areas, just outside of the city center, but perfect one a little relaxation when the city becomes too much).

If you’re interested in a trip to Moscow, it would be best to decide which season you truly want to experience before making your trip. Planning destinations to visit and activities to perform will help you decide which areas of Moscow to visit, and which seasons will be the best time to go.

Top Extreme Fun Activities To Try Out When You Travel Across The World

Travel & Destinations

Travelling is exciting. When you take the time to go to a new destination, you will have everything you need to try out different fun activities. And if you are a fan of adventure, you can find extreme fun activities across the world. 

Some of the extreme fun activities seem dangerous until you try them. You will be surprised by the level of fun you will enjoy. But to get started, you will need a lot of courage. 

This article shares with you some of the extremely fun activities that you can try out when you travel. 

  • Skydiving 

If you love extreme adventures, you must have thought of trying skydiving. It’s one of the most scary-looking experiences you can ever have. To start off, you need a lot of courage. But once you have tried it for the first time, you would love to try it over and over. This is because of the adventure and fun that it offers. 

There are different places across the world where you can go skydiving. The most popular skydiving destination is Dubai. You will enjoy skydiving at the height of up to 3000 feet above the ground as you overlook the palm island. Alternatively, you can travel to Kenya south coast and enjoy skydiving at Diani Beach. 

All you need to try skydiving is yourself and a little bit of courage to jump off the plane. For the first time, you will jump with a trainer. But with time, if you are qualified, you will be given a certificate to jump off the plane alone. 

  • Cliff Jumping 

Just like skydiving, cliff jumping is another extreme and adventurous activity. You will enjoy the fun of jumping from a high cliff and let the adrenaline rush take over your body. 

Depending on the cliff, you can choose the kind of jump you want. If, for instance, the cliff is overlooking some water, you can easily jump from the cliff without a parachute. All you would need is a floater if you are not a good swimmer. 

However, on high cliffs overlooking rock and dangerous landing areas, you will need a parachute. If you jump without a parachute, you will die. But if you have a parachute, you will have a soft landing.

  • Deep-Sea Diving 

Marine life is interesting. When you take time to dive into the water, you discover a whole world altogether. But it requires some courage to try this kind of fun. This is because there are dangerous creatures beneath the water surface. Besides, the water below the surface can be extremely stormy. It needs courage and experience to try some of the fun activities. 

The most important thing is to ensure you check the waters before you could jump. If you are diving in an area infested with sharks, wear shark cages. This is the only way you will be saved. 

Parting Shot
