A day trip to Isha Yoga Center Coimbatore (Adiyogi & Dhyanalinga)

' src=

Isha Yoga Center Coimbatore, situated at Vellangiri foothills, almost forty kilometers from the city, is a must-visit place for all, especially, for people with interest in yoga and meditation. Sadhguru founded Isha Yoga Center Coimbatore in the early nineties. However, it gained much popularity in the recent years after the inauguration of the Adiyogi Statue in 2017.

How to reach Isha Yoga Center Coimbatore?

Coimbatore, situated in the South of India, is well connected via air, rail, and road. From Coimbatore, the fastest way to reach Isha Foundation is by cab. You can book a cab via Ola / Uber or the Red taxi app. It will cost around Rs. 800 to Rs. 1k on one side.

Isha Foundation in Coimbatore

The most affordable way to travel to Isha foundation Coimbatore is via buses plying from Coimbatore railway station to Isha Center, at regular intervals. From the Gandhipuram bus stop, you can board Bus no. 14D that goes to Isha Center. We waited for the bus for more than an hour but with no luck, took a shared auto with some travelers. We paid Rs. 250/- total for two seats in the auto.

However, while returning in the evening, after watching the awesome laser show, we could get into one of these buses; the ticket was just Rs. 40 per person. Therefore, affordable travel is definitely via a bus.

Bus service to Isha yoga coimbatore

One tip : Avoid starting during lunchtime as while waiting at the bus stop, we learned the bus frequency is low during the afternoon time.

Is there an entry fee to visit Isha Yoga Center Coimbatore?

No, there is no entry to visit Isha Foundation. However, if you wish to stay at the ashram, you need to book your room in advance. I tried booking a week in advance, but it was unavailable. For Isha center Coimbatore  accommodation , you can send an email to [email protected] or call – 0422-2515470 / 71. For more information, visit the website .

Adiyogi – the Source of Yoga

Shiva is the first yogi, who could transcend physical limitations to reach his ultimate potential. Hence, the name Adiyogi came into being. This 112-feet Adiyogi statue represents the 112 ways through which we can transform and attain liberation. The Guinness Book of World Records recognizes Adiyogi as the Largest Bust Structure in the world. It is 150 ft. long, 25 ft. wide, and is made from 500 tons of steel. One glance at it and you will be mesmerized.

Sadhguru’s wisdom has guided me in several phases of life and coming to this center was like a dream come true. The vicinity, the calm vibes, everything puts you at ease with yourself. Going inward is the only way to spiritual enlightenment and what best place than this to start your journey?

Whether or not you are a Sadhguru supporter or a follower of his philosophies, a visit to Isha foundation Coimbatore is a must for all that it has to offer.

112-feet Adiyogi statue

Friendly tip: With the photo and reels fever, many of us lose sight of experiencing the beauty that a place has to offer. Thankfully, beyond one point, gadgets were not allowed. It gave us more time to just soak in the vibe. Nevertheless, you can click as many pictures as possible with the Adiyogi statue. While you enjoy the clicking fest, ensure you also spend some time in meditation at this peaceful place reverberating with high energy.

Peaceful Isha Coimbatore

Attractions at the Isha Yoga Center Coimbatore

  • 112 Feet Adiyogi
  • Linga Bhairavi – A Devi temple.
  • Theerthakunds – Suryakund and Chandrakund (separate for men and women to bathe).

Dhyanalinga

Before entering the Dhyanalinga, the Isha volunteers brief you about its significance. In addition, they share the technique to meditate in its surrounding. It was surprising to see, even kids sitting quietly within the sphere of Dhyanalinga. For ten minutes, everyone was silent, absorbed in going inward. Even if you have no experience in meditation, this place can empower you to experience a deep state of meditation.  

Adiyogi 3D Laser show

The key highlight of our day trip to Isha Center Coimbatore was the spectacular 3D Laser show in the evening. It started at sharp 7.20 pm and lit up the dark sky with a colorful mélange of lights. The show starts with Sadhguru chanting the Yoga Yoga Yogeshwaraya chant. He goes on with narrating how Adiyogi practiced the yogic sciences and further taught it to humanity via his seven disciples or Saptarishis.

Rarely have I experienced something that had overwhelmed me so much. The Adiyogi Divya Darshan was one-of-a-kind sight. My drive to delve within and learn inner engineering became even stronger. I hope to attend one of the workshops offered at the Isha foundation Coimbatore soon. 

Spectacular Adiyogi Divya Darshanam

The laser show lasts for about twenty minutes but leaves an everlasting impression. A day is sufficient to explore the Isha Yoga Center in Coimbatore . Plan your visit such that you do not miss the 3D laser show. It is an experience out of this world.

What is the best way to get from Coimbatore Railway Station to the Isha Yoga Center?

Around nine in the morning, we board a bus at the Coimbatore railway station. The bus, which originated at Gandhipuram Bus Stand, had the number 14B. This bus operates at a one- to two-hour frequency.

Around nine in the morning, we board a bus at the Coimbatore railway station. The bus, which originated at Gandhipuram Bus Stand, had the number 14B. This bus runs every one to two hours. We only traveled standing up until we arrived at the Isha Foundation, which is why this bus is packed. Running takes about an hour to an hour and ten minutes.

After arriving, we must first leave our luggage, phone, and any other electronic devices at the counter. Once inside, we visited the Dhyanlinga, Suryakund, Chandrakund, and Ling Bhairavi temples.

You must leave the shoes at the inside-located stalls. Anyone who wishes to enter the Dhyanlinga dome must first receive snan in the kund. Only after this is done are you permitted to receive Dhyanlinga darshan. Both men’s and women’s kunds are separate. Males should go to Suryakund, and females should go to Chandrakund. For this, they charge Rs. 20. For using snan, towels are provided. You must first take off all of your clothing before attempting to shave with the aid of a towel. You cannot take SNAP while wearing street clothes.

You may already be aware that no matter how many programs are running at once or how many Ishas need to be fed, Akshaya (the Ashram Kitchen Department) never misses a meal.

We have recently observed them adapting continuously to extremely high populations of people thanks to the mega programs in the ashram. The accommodation team has found it difficult to find places for those who unexpectedly visit the ashram to stay. In order to make their work easier, we believe it is time for us to provide some assistance.

This means that starting today, anyone planning to visit or stay in the ashram for a while—including ashram volunteers, meditators, program volunteers, and guests—must register at least three days in advance in one of the ways listed below.

It is a well-known meditation center with a large campus and is about an hour’s drive from Coimbatore city, similar to Sri Sri Ravishankar’s Ashram outside of Bengaluru. Sadguru, who conceptualized and constructed Isha Yoga Center, is the name under which everything in the facility operates.

We noticed the vast areca nut plantations as we got closer.

When we exited the bus, some of us were about to take a photo of the hills next to the Isha Yoga center. Volunteers, however, appeared out of nowhere and warned us against taking any pictures, not even of the hills. (The Veliankani Mountains, reportedly referred to as the South’s Kailash).

Twenty years ago, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev founded the Isha Yoga Center, which is run by the Isha Foundation.

The center, which is surrounded by dense forests and close to the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, is home to the architecturally unique Spanda Hall and Garden, a 64,000-square-foot meditation hall, and a program facility. The center’s 112-foot-tall bust of the Hindu deity Shiva, known as Adiyogi, is the first thing that visitors notice when they arrive. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, it is the largest bust sculpture ever made. Shiva is regarded as the creator of yoga, so the statue is referred to as Adiyogi, which means “the first yogi.”. The statue’s 112-foot height alludes to the yogic tradition’s mention of 112 different paths one can take to free themselves from the cycle of rebirth and death. The number also symbolizes the body’s 112 energy points.

"Those who earn the Grace of Bhairavi neither have to live in concern or fear of life or death, of poverty, or of failure. All that human beings consider as wellbeing will be theirs, if only they earn the Grace of Bhairavi." – Sadhguru

"Essentially, Suryakund and Chandrakund are energy pools that melt away karmic blocks, and that allow you to experience Dhyanalinga." – Sadhguru

"The Adiyogi Alayam is specially consecrated to allow one to experience Hatha Yoga and other yogic practices in their full depth and dimension." – Sadhguru

"As you go into higher levels of meditation, you come to a state of Spanda – intense, unmanifest energy – before you literally recreate yourself." – Sadhguru

The Divine Trip To Isha Yoga Center Coimbatore

I have been keenly following Sadhguru for 5 to 6 years now and had a passionate longing to visit Isha Yoga Center Coimbatore. The dream came true in June this year with an enthralling experience, especially witnessing the 112 ft Adiyogi spectacle in front of me was the best part of it all. So here is the my divine trip to Isha Yoga center Coimbatore.

As I landed in Coimbatore on 15 th June I saw a board outside the airport with Sadhguru’s world-famous Save Soil campaign culmination date of 21 st June and was even more excited to visit IYC.  I took a cab from there and reached around 90 minutes at the center.

Arriving at Isha Yoga Center Coimbatore

The entry is through Malai Vasal Gate from where you reach the Adiyogi- the largest bust sculpture in the world.

Isha Yoga center

Standing amid the foothills of velliangiri with a cool breeze sweeping my face I looked at Adiyogi in complete awe. His ever peaceful face tilted towards the sky, looking towards infinity can dissolve all your worries and stress.

Isha yoga center coimbatore

After spending about half an hour there I left to walk on a well-trodden path towards Dhyanlingam and Surya Kund.

A Dip in Suryakunda

Dhyanlinga is the very magnificent tall Shivalingam consecrated by Sadhguru. Before that is essential to take a dip in the Surya Kund which is a waterbody with a mercury shiv lingam inside the Kund. A dip in it rejuvenated me like never before and I was all ready to meditate in the presence of Dhyanlinga. The stone-laden path, the sculptures, and spiritual vibes along the way will enchant you like the heavens.

Dhyanalingam and Linga Bhairavi at Isha Yoga Center Coimbatore

As I reached there, I saw the big tall Nandi sitting in front of the Dhyanlingam as in all Shiva temples across the world. I bought flowers and a lamp as an offering and entered inside.

I lighted the lamp I found myself diving into a deep meditative state in just a short while and those 10 minutes was sheer bliss. Stepping outside I was just thoughtless and felt light like a feather. I was directed by the volunteers to take the auspicious darshan of Linga Bhairvi Maa. Her energetic presence attracted me like a magnet. After her Darshan, I felt myself drenched in utmost peace and energy. It was indeed a unique mesmerizing experience to be in such a divine ambience.

Nandi in Isha Yoga center

Post that I visited the Isha Shoppe and bought myself some fragrant incense sticks and an adiyogi statue. It was around 5 in the evening by then and the sky till then had changed into amazing shades and colours. It was time to leave and with a heavy heart I bid goodbye to this amazing abode of Shiva and promising myself to come again. This place felt like a magnet attracting people from all walks of life. All in all it was a divine and enthralling trip to Isha and worth all the time and patience you make to reach there.

Next, I’m looking forward to completing the well-known Inner Engineering Retreat at IYC in order to begin Shambhavi Mahamudra Kriya. Lets see when that becomes a reality. I wish at least once every one should pay a visit to this beautiful holy place where Lord shiva seems to himself reside . Not surprisingly Velliangiri Mountains are called Kailasha of the South.

Adiyogi Coimbatore Vlog.  It is a one day trip .

Introduction: Hello everyone! In this vlog, I will be sharing my experience visiting Adiyogi in Coimbatore, India. Adiyogi is a magnificent statue of Lord Shiva, located at the Isha Yoga Center. It's not just any statue, but an embodiment of a powerful spiritual energy. I was fortunate enough to visit this place, and it was truly a breathtaking experience.

Location and Surroundings: The Isha Yoga Center is situated in the foothills of the Velliangiri Mountains, and the location is nothing short of picturesque. The surrounding hills and lush greenery provide the perfect backdrop for the Adiyogi statue. The center is spread over 150 acres, and it's a peaceful oasis in the midst of a bustling city.

The Adiyogi Statue: The Adiyogi statue stands tall at 112 feet, making it the largest bust statue in the world. It's a beautiful and intricately crafted statue of Lord Shiva, with a serene expression on his face. The statue is made of steel and weighs over 500 tons. The attention to detail is amazing, with every aspect of the statue being carefully thought out and crafted.

Spiritual Significance: Adiyogi is not just a statue, but a representation of the first yogi who imparted the science of yoga to the world. It's a symbol of spiritual liberation, and the energy that emanates from it is truly divine. Many people come to the Isha Yoga Center to experience this energy and gain spiritual insights.

My Experience: When I first saw the Adiyogi statue, I was struck by its sheer size and beauty. I couldn't take my eyes off it. As I got closer, I could feel the powerful energy emanating from it, and it was an incredibly humbling experience. I spent some time meditating in front of the statue and felt a deep sense of peace and serenity.

Conclusion: Visiting Adiyogi in Coimbatore was a truly unforgettable experience for me. It's a place where one can connect with their inner self and experience spiritual liberation. If you ever get the chance to visit the Isha Yoga Center, I highly recommend it. It's an experience like no other, and one that will stay with you for a lifetime. Thank you for watching!

Journey to Inner Peace A Handbook for the Isha Yoga Center Explorer

Yogeshwar Linga and Saptarishis

Yogeshwar Linga and Saptarishis

Situated close to the Adiyogi is the Yogeshwar Linga, dedicated by Sadhguru and representing five primary chakras in the human body. The Yogeshwar Linga combines flamboyant ecstasy with austere discipline. Adiyogi is now a living being thanks to the Yogeshwar Linga.

The Saptarishi Panel, a beautifully engraved granite relief behind the Linga, features the seven disciples of Shiva– Agastya, Atri, Angiras, Bhrigu, Gautama, Vasishtha, and Kashyapa. Each disciple is shown with a distinct yoga posture and mudra.

Linga Bhairavi

Linga Bhairavi

Linga Bhairavi is the manifestation of the Divine Feminine. Furthermore, Devi stands eight feet tall, representing a unique manifestation of the Mother Goddess.

“Those who earn the Grace of Bhairavi neither have to live in concern nor fear of life or death, poverty, or failure. Consequently, all that human beings consider as well-being will be theirs if only they earn the Grace of Bhairavi.” —Sadhguru

Devi, who was dedicated by Sadhguru via prana pratishtha, has three and a half chakras representing stability, well-being, and health. Devi, who is both fierce and compassionate at the same time, looks after her followers, providing for all their material, physical, and even more vital needs. Various offerings and rituals that assist in every step of life are available here. This will allow devotees to benefit from Devi’s abundant grace.

Darshan Timings: (6:30 AM to 1:20 PM) & (4:20 PM to 8:20 PM)

Dhyanalinga

Dhyanalinga

In Sanskrit, “Linga” means form, while “Dhyana” signifies meditation. Additionally, Sadhguru, a Yogi, mystic, and realized master, dedicated the Dhyanalinga after three years of intense prana pratishtha (a life-force consecration procedure). The Dhyanalinga, the first complete form in millennia, is a manifestation of all seven chakras, fully charged and sealed to prevent dissipation. Within its space, intense yet subtle energies allow for the deepest states of peace and silence, revealing the fundamental nature of life. In the metaphysical sense, the Dhyanalinga is a Guru, a massive energy center, and a portal to enlightenment and liberation. Notably, this unique energy form sits under a pillarless 250,000-brick dome structure.

“Just sitting silently for a few minutes within the sphere of Dhyanalinga, indeed, is enough to make even those unaware of meditation experience a state of deep meditativeness,” asserts Sadhguru.

Before entering the Dhyanalinga complex, visitors are greeted by the Sarva Dharma Sthambha, a 17-foot white granite monolith with symbols from nine major religions engraved on its sides as a universal welcome to all. The stone gateway, known as the Thorana, serves as the main entrance. Beyond the Thorana rise three unusually high entrance steps that represent the three gunas or mental qualities: Tamas, Rajas, and Sattva. You can discover the greatest and most recent offers on reasonably priced and cozy international flights if you’re looking for last-minute international flight deals .

Darshan Timings: 6 AM to 8 PM

Adiyogi – The Source of Yoga

Adiyogi – The Source of Yoga

The first Yogi (Adiyogi) imparted the science of yoga to his seven disciples. Furthermore, he meticulously outlined 112 strategies aimed at assisting individuals in overcoming their obstacles. These strategies play a pivotal role in helping individuals realize their full potential. Additionally, Adiyogi offers tools for personal transformation, emphasizing that it is the only way out for human welfare and emancipation—this being his core message.

“Adiyogi is the doorway to ultimate wellbeing and liberation.” —Sadhguru

In 2017, India’s Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled this 112-foot-tall face, recognized as the world’s largest face by Guinness World Records. This monumental tribute serves as an acknowledgment of the first Yogi’s unparalleled contribution to humanity. Furthermore, it symbolizes liberation and signifies the 112 ways through which one can achieve their ultimate nature by delving into the science of Yoga. You can also check the direct flights to Kochi from USA as it will provide multiple options for travel.

Travel Itinerary For One Week in Moscow: The Best of Moscow!

I just got back from one week in Moscow. And, as you might have already guessed, it was a mind-boggling experience. It was not my first trip to the Russian capital. But I hardly ever got enough time to explore this sprawling city. Visiting places for business rarely leaves enough time for sightseeing. I think that if you’ve got one week in Russia, you can also consider splitting your time between its largest cities (i.e. Saint Petersburg ) to get the most out of your trip. Seven days will let you see the majority of the main sights and go beyond just scratching the surface. In this post, I’m going to share with you my idea of the perfect travel itinerary for one week in Moscow.

Moscow is perhaps both the business and cultural hub of Russia. There is a lot more to see here than just the Kremlin and Saint Basil’s Cathedral. Centuries-old churches with onion-shaped domes dotted around the city are in stark contrast with newly completed impressive skyscrapers of Moscow City dominating the skyline. I spent a lot of time thinking about my Moscow itinerary before I left. And this city lived up to all of my expectations.

No trip to Moscow would be complete without seeing its main attraction. The Red Square is just a stone’s throw away from several metro stations. It is home to some of the most impressive architectural masterpieces in the city. The first thing you’ll probably notice after entering it and passing vendors selling weird fur hats is the fairytale-like looking Saint Basil’s Cathedral. It was built to commemorate one of the major victories of Ivan the Terrible. I once spent 20 minutes gazing at it, trying to find the perfect angle to snap it. It was easier said than done because of the hordes of locals and tourists.

As you continue strolling around Red Square, there’s no way you can miss Gum. It was widely known as the main department store during the Soviet Era. Now this large (yet historic) shopping mall is filled with expensive boutiques, pricey eateries, etc. During my trip to Moscow, I was on a tight budget. So I only took a retro-style stroll in Gum to get a rare glimpse of a place where Soviet leaders used to grocery shop and buy their stuff. In case you want some modern shopping experience, head to the Okhotny Ryad Shopping Center with stores like New Yorker, Zara, and Adidas.

To continue this Moscow itinerary, next you may want to go inside the Kremlin walls. This is the center of Russian political power and the president’s official residence. If you’re planning to pay Kremlin a visit do your best to visit Ivan the Great Bell Tower as well. Go there as early as possible to avoid crowds and get an incredible bird’s-eye view. There are a couple of museums that are available during designated visiting hours. Make sure to book your ticket online and avoid lines.

Day 2 – Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the Tretyakov Gallery, and the Arbat Street

Metro Station: Kropotkinskaya on Red Line

As soon as you start creating a Moscow itinerary for your second day, you’ll discover that there are plenty of metro stations that are much closer to certain sites. Depending on your route, take a closer look at the metro map to pick the closest.

The white marble walls of Christ the Saviour Cathedral are awe-inspiring. As you approach this tallest Orthodox Christian church, you may notice the bronze sculptures, magnificent arches, and cupolas that were created to commemorate Russia’s victory against Napoleon.

Unfortunately, the current Cathedral is a replica, since original was blown to bits in 1931 by the Soviet government. The new cathedral basically follows the original design, but they have added some new elements such as marble high reliefs.

Home to some precious collection of artworks, in Tretyakov Gallery you can find more than 150,000 of works spanning centuries of artistic endeavor. Originally a privately owned gallery, it now has become one of the largest museums in Russia. The Gallery is often considered essential to visit. But I have encountered a lot of locals who have never been there.

Famous for its souvenirs, musicians, and theaters, Arbat street is among the few in Moscow that were turned into pedestrian zones. Arbat street is usually very busy with tourists and locals alike. My local friend once called it the oldest street in Moscow dating back to 1493. It is a kilometer long walking street filled with fancy gift shops, small cozy restaurants, lots of cute cafes, and street artists. It is closed to any vehicular traffic, so you can easily stroll it with kids.

Day 3 – Moscow River Boat Ride, Poklonnaya Hill Victory Park, the Moscow City

Metro Station: Kievskaya and Park Pobedy on Dark Blue Line / Vystavochnaya on Light Blue Line

Voyaging along the Moscow River is definitely one of the best ways to catch a glimpse of the city and see the attractions from a bit different perspective. Depending on your Moscow itinerary, travel budget and the time of the year, there are various types of boats available. In the summer there is no shortage of boats, and you’ll be spoiled for choice.

exploring Moscow

Travel Itinerary for One Week in Beijing

If you find yourself in Moscow during the winter months, I’d recommend going with Radisson boat cruise. These are often more expensive (yet comfy). They offer refreshments like tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and, of course, alcoholic drinks. Prices may vary but mostly depend on your food and drink selection. Find their main pier near the opulent Ukraine hotel . The hotel is one of the “Seven Sisters”, so if you’re into the charm of Stalinist architecture don’t miss a chance to stay there.

The area near Poklonnaya Hill has the closest relation to the country’s recent past. The memorial complex was completed in the mid-1990s to commemorate the Victory and WW2 casualties. Also known as the Great Patriotic War Museum, activities here include indoor attractions while the grounds around host an open-air museum with old tanks and other vehicles used on the battlefield.

How I Planned My Trip to Vietnam

The hallmark of the memorial complex and the first thing you see as you exit metro is the statue of Nike mounted to its column. This is a very impressive Obelisk with a statue of Saint George slaying the dragon at its base.

Maybe not as impressive as Shanghai’s Oriental Pearl Tower , the skyscrapers of the Moscow City (otherwise known as Moscow International Business Center) are so drastically different from dull Soviet architecture. With 239 meters and 60 floors, the Empire Tower is the seventh highest building in the business district.

The observation deck occupies 56 floor from where you have some panoramic views of the city. I loved the view in the direction of Moscow State University and Luzhniki stadium as well to the other side with residential quarters. The entrance fee is pricey, but if you’re want to get a bird’s eye view, the skyscraper is one of the best places for doing just that.

Day 4 – VDNKh, Worker and Collective Farm Woman Monument, The Ostankino TV Tower

Metro Station: VDNKh on Orange Line

VDNKh is one of my favorite attractions in Moscow. The weird abbreviation actually stands for Russian vystavka dostizheniy narodnogo khozyaystva (Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy). With more than 200 buildings and 30 pavilions on the grounds, VDNKh serves as an open-air museum. You can easily spend a full day here since the park occupies a very large area.

Moscow sights

Places to Visit in Barcelona That Aren’t Beaches

First, there are pavilions that used to showcase different cultures the USSR was made of. Additionally, there is a number of shopping pavilions, as well as Moskvarium (an Oceanarium) that features a variety of marine species. VDNKh is a popular venue for events and fairs. There is always something going on, so I’d recommend checking their website if you want to see some particular exhibition.

A stone’s throw away from VDNKh there is a very distinctive 25-meters high monument. Originally built in 1937 for the world fair in Paris, the hulking figures of men and women holding a hammer and a sickle represent the Soviet idea of united workers and farmers. It doesn’t take much time to see the monument, but visiting it gives some idea of the Soviet Union’s grandiose aspirations.

I have a thing for tall buildings. So to continue my travel itinerary for one week in Moscow I decided to climb the fourth highest TV tower in the world. This iconic 540m tower is a fixture of the skyline. You can see it virtually from everywhere in Moscow, and this is where you can get the best panoramic views (yep, even better than Empire skyscraper).

top things to do in Moscow

Parts of the floor are made of tempered glass, so it can be quite scary to exit the elevator. But trust me, as you start observing buildings and cars below, you won’t want to leave. There is only a limited number of tickets per day, so you may want to book online. Insider tip: the first tour is cheaper, you can save up to $10 if go there early.

Day 5 – A Tour To Moscow Manor Houses

Metro Station: Kolomenskoye, Tsaritsyno on Dark Green Line / Kuskovo on Purple Line

I love visiting the manor houses and palaces in Moscow. These opulent buildings were generally built to house Russian aristocratic families and monarchs. Houses tend to be rather grand affairs with impressive architecture. And, depending on the whims of the owners, some form of a landscaped garden.

During the early part of the 20th century though, many of Russia’s aristocratic families (including the family of the last emperor) ended up being killed or moving abroad . Their manor houses were nationalized. Some time later (after the fall of the USSR) these were open to the public. It means that today a great many of Moscow’s finest manor houses and palaces are open for touring.

one week Moscow itinerary

20 Travel Tips I’ve Learned From Travelling The World

There are 20 manor houses scattered throughout the city and more than 25 in the area around. But not all of them easily accessible and exploring them often takes a lot of time. I’d recommend focusing on three most popular estates in Moscow that are some 30-minute metro ride away from Kremlin.

Sandwiched between the Moscow River and the Andropov Avenue, Kolomenskoye is a UNESCO site that became a public park in the 1920’s. Once a former royal estate, now it is one of the most tranquil parks in the city with gorgeous views. The Ascension Church, The White Column, and the grounds are a truly grand place to visit.

You could easily spend a full day here, exploring a traditional Russian village (that is, in fact, a market), picnicking by the river, enjoying the Eastern Orthodox church architecture, hiking the grounds as well as and wandering the park and gardens with wildflower meadows, apple orchards, and birch and maple groves. The estate museum showcases Russian nature at its finest year-round.

If my travel itinerary for one week in Moscow was a family tree, Tsaritsyno Park would probably be the crazy uncle that no-one talks about. It’s a large park in the south of the city of mind-boggling proportions, unbelievable in so many ways, and yet most travelers have never heard of it.

The palace was supposed to be a summer home for Empress Catherine the Great. But since the construction didn’t meet with her approval the palace was abandoned. Since the early 1990’s the palace, the pond, and the grounds have been undergoing renovations. The entire complex is now looking brighter and more elaborately decorated than at possibly any other time during its history. Like most parks in Moscow, you can visit Tsaritsyno free of charge, but there is a small fee if you want to visit the palace.

How To Stop Procrastinating When Trip Planning

Last, but by no means least on my Moscow itinerary is Kuskovo Park . This is definitely an off-the-beaten-path place. While it is not easily accessible, you will be rewarded with a lack of crowds. This 18th-century summer country house of the Sheremetev family was one of the first summer country estates of the Russian nobility. And when you visit you’ll quickly realize why locals love this park.

Like many other estates, Kuskovo has just been renovated. So there are lovely French formal garden, a grotto, and the Dutch house to explore. Make sure to plan your itinerary well because the estate is some way from a metro station.

Day 6 – Explore the Golden Ring

Creating the Moscow itinerary may keep you busy for days with the seemingly endless amount of things to do. Visiting the so-called Golden Ring is like stepping back in time. Golden Ring is a “theme route” devised by promotion-minded journalist and writer Yuri Bychkov.

Having started in Moscow the route will take you through a number of historical cities. It now includes Suzdal, Vladimir, Kostroma, Yaroslavl and Sergiev Posad. All these awe-inspiring towns have their own smaller kremlins and feature dramatic churches with onion-shaped domes, tranquil residential areas, and other architectural landmarks.

I only visited two out of eight cities included on the route. It is a no-brainer that Sergiev Posad is the nearest and the easiest city to see on a day trip from Moscow. That being said, you can explore its main attractions in just one day. Located some 70 km north-east of the Russian capital, this tiny and overlooked town is home to Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius, UNESCO Site.

Sergiev Posad is often described as being at the heart of Russian spiritual life. So it is uncommon to see the crowds of Russian pilgrims showing a deep reverence for their religion. If you’re traveling independently and using public transport, you can reach Sergiev Posad by bus (departs from VDNKh) or by suburban commuter train from Yaroslavskaya Railway Station (Bahnhof). It takes about one and a half hours to reach the town.

Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius is a great place to get a glimpse of filling and warming Russian lunch, specifically at the “ Gostevaya Izba ” restaurant. Try the duck breast, hearty potato and vegetables, and the awesome Napoleon cake.

Day 7 – Gorky Park, Izmailovo Kremlin, Patriarch’s Ponds

Metro Station: Park Kultury or Oktyabrskaya on Circle Line / Partizanskaya on Dark Blue Line / Pushkinskaya on Dark Green Line

Gorky Park is in the heart of Moscow. It offers many different types of outdoor activities, such as dancing, cycling, skateboarding, walking, jogging, and anything else you can do in a park. Named after Maxim Gorky, this sprawling and lovely park is where locals go on a picnic, relax and enjoy free yoga classes. It’s a popular place to bike around, and there is a Muzeon Art Park not far from here. A dynamic location with a younger vibe. There is also a pier, so you can take a cruise along the river too.

How to Save Money While Traveling in Europe

The Kremlin in Izmailovo is by no means like the one you can find near the Red Square. Originally built for decorative purposes, it now features the Vernissage flea market and a number of frequent fairs, exhibitions, and conferences. Every weekend, there’s a giant flea market in Izmailovo, where dozens of stalls sell Soviet propaganda crap, Russian nesting dolls, vinyl records, jewelry and just about any object you can imagine. Go early in the morning if you want to beat the crowds.

All the Bulgakov’s fans should pay a visit to Patriarch’s Ponds (yup, that is plural). With a lovely small city park and the only one (!) pond in the middle, the location is where the opening scene of Bulgakov’s novel Master and Margarita was set. The novel is centered around a visit by Devil to the atheistic Soviet Union is considered by many critics to be one of the best novels of the 20th century. I spent great two hours strolling the nearby streets and having lunch in the hipster cafe.

Conclusion and Recommendations

To conclude, Moscow is a safe city to visit. I have never had a problem with getting around and most locals are really friendly once they know you’re a foreigner. Moscow has undergone some serious reconstruction over the last few years. So you can expect some places to be completely different. I hope my one week Moscow itinerary was helpful! If you have less time, say 4 days or 5 days, I would cut out day 6 and day 7. You could save the Golden Ring for a separate trip entirely as there’s lots to see!

I know very little about Moscow or Russia for the\at matter. I do know I would have to see the Red Square and all of its exquisite architectural masterpieces. Also the CATHEDRAL OF CHRIST THE SAVIOUR. Thanks for shedding some light on visiting Moscow.

Thanks for swinging by! The Red Square is a great starting point, but there way too many places and things to discover aside from it!

Here is a quick look at the seasons so you can decide when to visit Moscow!

The summer months (June-August) are a great time to travel to Moscow to take advantage of the enjoyable mild temperatures. This is considered peak travel season. Bear in mind that hotel prices rise along with the temperatures!

when to visit moscow

If you’re planning a trip to Moscow during fall (September-November) try to plan for early fall. This way the temperatures will still be pleasant and winter won’t be threatening.

Russian winters (December-February) are not for the faint of heart as Napoleon learned to his peril. Some days the sun will be out for less than an hour, and snow is guaranteed. Although winters are exceptionally cold, this is when you’ll get a true glimpse of the Moscow experience!

The best time to visit Moscow is during spring  (March-May). The temperatures will begin to creep up and the sun begins to shine for significant portions of the day. Hotel rates will also have yet to skyrocket into peak ranges!

An important aspect of planning any trip is figuring out the transportation situation. You’re probably wondering how you’re going to get to all of your Moscow points of interest right? Luckily, this sprawling city has an excellent network of public transportation that will make traveling a breeze!

The underground metro system is the quickest and most efficient way to travel around Moscow.

It’s also a great option if you’re planning a Moscow itinerary during the colder months, as you’ll be sheltered from the snow and freezing temperatures!

During the 20th century, the square became famous as the site for demonstrations designed to showcase Soviet strength. Visiting the Red Square today, you’ll find it teeming with tourists, who come to witness its magical architecture up close!

The Red Square

The square is the picture postcard of Russian tourism, so make sure to bring your camera when you visit! No matter the season, or the time of day, it’s delightfully photogenic! 

It’s also home to some of Russia’s most distinguishing and important landmarks, which we’ve made sure to include further down in this itinerary. It’s an important center of Russia’s cultural life and one of the top places to visit in Moscow!

In 1990, UNESCO designated Russia’s Red Square as a World Heritage site. Visiting this historic site is a true bucket-list event and essential addition to your itinerary for Moscow!

Day 1 / Stop 2 – The Moscow Kremlin

  • Why it’s awesome: The Moscow Kremlin complex includes several palaces and cathedrals and is surrounded by the Kremlin wall. It also houses the principal museum of Russia (the Kremlin Armory).

  • Food nearby: Bosco Cafe is a charming place to grat a casual bite to eat. They have excellent coffee and wonderful views of the Red Square and the Moscow Kremlin!

The iconic Moscow Kremlin , also known as the Kremlin museum complex, sits on Borovitsky Hill, rising above the Moscow River. It is a fortified complex in the center of the city, overlooking several iconic buildings in the Red Square!

It’s the best known of the Russian Kremlins – citadels or fortress’ protecting and dominating a city. During the early decades of the Soviet era, the Kremlin was a private enclave where the state’s governing elite lived and worked.

The Kremlin is outlined by an irregularly shaped triangular wall that encloses an area of 68 acres! The existing walls and towers were built from 1485 to 1495. Inside the Kremlin museum complex, there are five palaces, four cathedrals, and the enclosing Kremlin Wall with Kremlin towers.

The Armoury Chamber is a part of the Grand Kremlin Palace’s complex and is one of the oldest museums of Moscow, established in 1851. It showcases Russian history and displays many cherished relics. Definitely make sure to check out this museum while you’re here!

The Moscow Kremlin

The churches inside the Moscow Kremlin are the Cathedral of the Dormition, Church of the Archangel, Church of the Annunciation, and the bell tower of Ivan Veliki (a church tower).

The five-domed Cathedral of the Dormition is considered the most famous. It was built from 1475–1479 by an Italian architect and has served as a wedding and coronation place for great princes, tsars, and emperors of Russia. Church services are given in the Kremlin’s numerous cathedrals on a regular basis.

The Grand Kremlin Palace was the former Tsar’s Moscow residence and today it serves as the official workplace of the President of the Russian Federation (Vladimir Putin seems to have bagged that title for life) .

Insider Tip: The Kremlin is closed every Thursday! Make sure to plan this stop on your Moscow itinerary for any other day of the week!

Day 1 / Stop 3 – Lenin’s Mausoleum

  • Why it’s awesome: The mausoleum displays the preserved body of Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin .
  • Cost: Free!
  • Food nearby: Khinkal’naya is a charming Georgian restaurant with vaulted ceilings and exposed brick. It’s a popular place with locals and right next to the Red Square!

Lenin’s Mausoleum, also known as Lenin’s Tomb, is the modernist mausoleum for the revolutionary leader Vladimir Lenin. It’s located within the Red Square and serves as the resting place for the Soviet leader! His preserved body has been on public display since shortly after his death in 1924.

It’s located just a few steps away from the Kremlin Wall and is one of the most controversial yet popular Moscow attractions!

Admission is free for everyone, you’ll only need to pay if you need to check a bag. Before visitors are allowed to enter the mausoleum, they have to go through a metal detector first. No metal objects, liquids, or large bags are allowed in the mausoleum!

Lenins Mausoleum

Expect a line to enter the building, and while you’re inside the building, you’ll be constantly moving in line with other visitors. This means you won’t be able to spend as long as you’d like viewing the mausoleum, but you’ll still be able to get a good look. Pictures and filming while inside the building are strictly prohibited, and security guards will stop you if they see you breaking this rule.

The mausoleum is only open on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday – unless it’s a public holiday or a day scheduled for maintenance. The hours it’s open for each day are limited, make sure to check online before you visit to make sure you can fit this into your Moscow itinerary for that day!

Insider Tip: The Lenin’s Museum is there for people to pay their respect; remember to keep silent and move along quickly, it’s not intended for people to congregate around. Also, men are not allowed to wear hats and everyone must take their hands out of their pockets when inside the building.

Day 1 / Stop 4 – St. Basil’s Cathedral

  • Why it’s awesome: A dazzling designed cathedral that showcases Russia’s unique architecture. This cathedral is one of the most recognizable symbols of the country!
  • Cost: USD $8.00
  • Food nearby: Moskovskiy Chaynyy Klub is a cozy cafe serving food items and pipping hot tea; it’s the perfect place to go if you’re visiting Moscow during the winter months!

Located in the Red Square, the ornate 16th-century St. Basil’s Cathedral is probably the building you picture when you think of Moscow’s unique architecture. Its colorful onion-shaped domes tower over the Moscow skyline!

The cathedral was built from 1555-1561 by order of Tsar Ivan the Terrible. It was designed with an iconic onion dome facade and enchanting colors that captivate all who see it. Fun fact: If you’re wondering why Russian churches have onion domes, they are popularly believed to symbolize burning candles!

This iconic cathedral has become a symbol of Russia due to its distinguishing architecture and prominent position inside the Red Square. It’s one of the most beautiful, wonderful, and mesmerizing historical cathedrals in the world!

St. Basils Cathedral

The interior of the church surprises most people when they visit. In contrast to the large exterior, the inside is not so much one large area, but rather a collection of smaller areas, with many corridors and small rooms. There are 9 small chapels and one mausoleum grouped around a central tower.

Visiting the inside is like walking through a maze, there are even small signs all around the cathedral tracing where to walk, and pointing you in the right direction! The walls are meticulously decorated and painted with intricate floral designs and religious themes.

The church rarely holds service and is instead a museum open for the public to visit.

Now that we’ve covered what to do in Moscow in 2 days, if you’re able to spend more time in the city you’re going to need more attractions to fill your time. Here are a few more really cool things to do in Moscow we recommend!

The Alexander Garden

  • A tranquil place to relax near the Red Square
  • Green lawns dotted with sculptures and lovely water features
  • The park is open every day and has no entrance fee

The Alexander Garden was one of the first urban public parks in Moscow! The garden premiered in 1821 and was built to celebrate Russia’s victory over Napoleon’s forces in 1812!

The park is beautiful and well maintained with paths to walk on and benches to rest on. The park contains three separate gardens: the upper garden, middle garden, and lower garden.

The Alexander Garden

Located in the upper garden, towards the main entrance to the park is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier with its eternal flame. This monument was created in 1967 and contains the body of a soldier who fell during the Great Patriotic War!

The park stretches along all the length of the western Kremlin wall for about half a mile. Due to its central location in the city, it’ll be easily accessible when you’re out exploring The Red Square.

It provides a bit of relief from the city’s high-energy city streets. Bring a picnic lunch, go for a walk, or just sit and people watch, this is one of the best Moscow sites to wind-down and relax!

Ostankino Television Tower

  • Television and radio tower in Moscow

  • Make sure you bring your passport when you visit, you can’t go up without it!

For spectacular views of the city, make sure to add the Ostankino Television Tower to your itinerary for Moscow! This impressive free-standing structure provides stunning views of the city in every direction. The glass floor at the top also provides great alternative views of the city!

Ostankino Television Tower

It takes just 58 seconds for visitors to reach the Tower’s observation deck by super fast elevator. The tower is open every day for long hours and is a great site in Moscow to check out! There is even a restaurant at the top where you can enjoy rotating views of the city while you dine on traditional Russian cuisine or European cuisine!

The tower is somewhat of an architectural surprise in a city that is not known for skyscrapers! To see the city from a new perspective, make sure to add this stop to your Moscow itinerary!

Izmaylovo District

  • The most popular attractions in this district are the kremlin and the flea market
  • Outside of the city center and easy to reach via metro
  • Most popular during the summer and on weekends

Travel outside the city center and discover a unique area of the city! The Izmaylovo District is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike, and one of the coolest places to see in Moscow! The two main attractions we recommend checking out are the Kremlin and the flea market.

The Izmailovo Kremlin was established as a cultural center and molded after traditional Russian architecture. This colorful complex is home to several single-subject museums, including a Russian folk art museum and a vodka museum!

Izmaylovo District

Next to the Kremlin is the Izmailovo open-air market, which dates back to the 17th century! The market is connected to the Izmailovo Kremlin by a wooden bridge. Pick up all your Russian souvenirs here, including traditional handicrafts, paintings, books, retro toys, and Soviet memorabilia!

  • The museum also includes a small cafe and burger shop

For something a little different, check out the Museum of Soviet Arcade Games! The museum features roughly 60 machines from the Soviet era, including video games, pinball machines, and collaborative hockey foosball! The machines inside the museum were produced in the USSR in the mid-1970s.

Museum of Soviet Arcade Games

The best part is, most of the games are still playable! Purchase tickets and try the games out for yourself! The museum also has a neat little screening room that plays old Soviet cartoons and an area with Soviet magazines! This unique attraction is a fun addition to a 3 day itinerary in Moscow, and an attraction that all ages will enjoy! 

Whether you’re spending one day in Moscow, or more, safety is an important thing to keep in mind when traveling to a big city! Overall, Moscow is a very safe place to visit. However, it is always recommended that tourists take certain precautions when traveling to a new destination!

The police in Moscow is extremely effective at making the city a safe place to visit and do their best to patrol all of the top Moscow, Russia tourist attractions. However, tourists can still be a target for pickpockets and scammers.

Moscow has a huge flow of tourists, therefore there is a risk for pickpocketing. Simple precautions will help eliminate your chances of being robbed. Stay vigilant, keep your items close to you at all times, and don’t flash your valuables!

If you’re planning a solo Moscow itinerary, you should have no need to worry, as the city is also considered safe for solo travelers, even women. Stay in the populated areas, try and not travel alone late at night, and never accept rides from strangers or taxis without a meter and correct signage.

The threat of natural disasters in Moscow is low, with the exception of severe winters when the temperature can dip below freezing! Bring a good, warm jacket if you visit in Winter.

However, please note that Russian views on homsexuality are far less accepting than those in Western Europe. Likewise, Non-Caucasian travellers may sadly encounter racism in Russia .

Don’t Forget Your Travel Insurance for Moscow

ALWAYS sort out your backpacker insurance before your trip. There’s plenty to choose from in that department, but a good place to start is Safety Wing .

They offer month-to-month payments, no lock-in contracts, and require absolutely no itineraries: that’s the exact kind of insurance long-term travellers and digital nomads need.
