Take your children to the Obraztsov Puppet Theater, which holds performances every evening during the winter. For an unusual experience when you travel to Moscow, visit a ‘banya,’ an authentic Russian Bathhouse, where you’ll experience hot saunas followed by a brisk whipping with birch branches to improve circulation.
