Hi Expats,

I've just relocated to Moscow, for a about a year or so, from NYC, miss it already. Would love to explore Moscow a bit, see museums, shows and of course check out some good entertainment spots. Any ideas, recommendation? Would like to make new friends.

Best,
Alina

Hi Alina,

I'm pretty new to Moscow as well (from Chicago), and I'll also be here about a year. I'd love to meet new people.

If the weather is nice on Sunday, I was thinking about checking out Novodevichy Monastery. It's supposed to be beautiful. I'd also love to check out some entertainment spots.

Hey Niki, Michelle and OS,

Novodevichy Monastery is open tomorrow from 10am to 5:30pm. Ticket price: 150rub.
the nearest subway/tube station is Sportivnaya (according to the metro map), it's Sokolnicheskaya Line. Let me know if i'm mistaking, but that 's what i found online.

Should we meet near a ticket booth at the Monastery or something? I've never been there but i hope it won't difficult to find it. Any other suggestions? as per time, will 12:30, 1:00pm work for you?

Look forward to it

Hey all,
First of all I would like to ask you if you have had a good time Sunday.
Secondly, wanted to ask if you have planned any other escursion or similar trips. Like you I'm also moving to Moscow and I would like to explore some of Moscow not on my own. Please let me know if you guys have any more plans and if you would not mind having another person joining you....

regards,
Herald

I'm also new here and have not seen anything of Moscow so far. So wherever you go or whatever you do, it would be great if I could join you!
