Guide Books

Guide Books in Moscow Without a doubt, the best all-round guide is The Rough Guide to Moscow by. The authors don't balk at telling the truth about the more challenging aspects of life in Russia (and sometimes their comments are a little out-dated), but they do so with wit and affection. As is generally the case with the series, the listings for restaurants, bars etc. are brief and not much use, but for sightseeing and history it's unbeatable, with just the right mix of erudition, humor and sound advice.

In comparison, the Lonely Planet Moscow is a little earnest and pedestrian. It is accurate and up-to-date, but not particularly engaging, and too short to provide any detailed information about the sights and attractions of the city. The restaurant and bar reviews are its main advantage, but there are easier and better ways to get the latest on where to go than from a guide book, especially in a market that changes as fast as Moscow's. There's also a little too much penny-pinching for any but the most cash-strapped traveler.

Fodor's Moscow and St Petersburg was once unmitigatedly awful, but seems to have improved since the fifth edition. Every effort is made to keep the books up-to-date and, if you like the series, then this won't disappoint.
