We’re really asking for it. We kept putting off this installment of Hack Your City, waiting for news about Russia to die down, as if this was all going to blow over. Well now we’re biting the bullet (in Soviet Russia, bullet bites you) and doing a Hack Your City on Moscow. After all, it’s an expensive, sprawling city of 12 million with centuries of history. Seems like there’s lots to learn if you’re going to visit for business, for pleasure, or to record some personal videos.
Each Monday on Hack Your City, we ask readers for your best tips on a city: driving tips, restaurant recs, things to do, and any other advice for visitors and locals. Then on Thursday, we present the best comments. We’re working our way around the U.S. and around the globe.
Tell you what, you’re allowed to make jokes about current presidential administrations if you also have an actual tip for visiting, working in, or living in Moscow. Here’s what we want to know:
What’s underrated? What places deserve a few more discerning visitors? If some famous destination is a tourist trap, what’s the best alternative? What’s the weirdest thing you like in Moscow?
How should a visitor approach the city? What attitude should they adopt? What local traditions, behaviors, and laws should they be aware of? What should they know about the city’s past and present? How friendly are the locals, and how can visitors get along with them?
What’s it like long-term? What do you love and hate about the city? What do you recommend to other residents? How do you hack your commute, what’s your daily lunch spot or the best spot to people-watch? What mistakes do new residents make—any common misconceptions or mispronunciations? Where do you go when you want to get out of town for a day or a week? And why does everyone have a dacha?
Lastly, how has the city’s vibe changed over the past few years? What old travel advice no longer applies here, and what new advice does?
Leave your tips in the comments below, and we’ll highlight the best ones. (Read some other comments first to make sure yours is unique.) Then come back Thursday for a new post with the highlights.
