Elite Recommends – Moscow’s Ultimate VIP Experiences

By Chris Boyle

Elite Traveler has selected the most exclusive VIP experiences for your stay in Moscow



“Space: the final frontier. To boldly go where no man has gone before.”

The famous phrase from Star Trek is becoming a reality for today’s space tourists, thanks largely to companies like Space Adventures who have pioneered the concept. This ambitious project is set to blast off in the next few years, and in the meantime, visitors to Moscow can take part in a range of activities at the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center. The Cosmonaut Overview Training package is a seven-day intensive course that will train you for a space flight. The package includes one day Mini-Medical test in Star City, Centrifuge experience (launch to orbit insertion) Simulator Training and Spacewalk mission simulation, among many others. For visitors seeking shorter training, they can enjoy a separate Centrifuge experience, or train for a spacewalk in the neutral buoyancy tank, which requires scuba certification. All of the activities include photos and videos to provide you with a great souvenir of your experience.

Many restaurants around the world claim to give diners a fantastic view; but very few of them allow you to enjoy that view in complete privacy – and even fewer places will also cook you a delicious meal.

The Swissôtel Krasnye Holmy is offering exactly that: the chance to eat a private, exclusive meal on the roof of the hotel, with a stunning view over Moscow. This is the ultimate in romantic luxury: your own personal chef providing a tailor-made menu, and serenaded by a classical music quartet. Watch the beauty unfold around you as the sun sinks over the horizon and bathes the city in its warm glow, before the city’s lights illuminate Moscow’s many attractions. There is also the option to invite a larger group to the roof and throw a party overlooking the Russian capital.
