WATCH: All you need to snow about a wintry trip to Moscow

Beat the thick of tourist crowds by Russian to Moscow in winter instead of summer.

WATCH: What do Russians get up to in Moscow after dark?

The city becomes a fairy tale winter wonderland as the snow dusts the colourful domes of St Basil Cathedral and the red brick of the Kremlin and the icy splendour of the Moskva River. 

And to top it off is the winter fun of ice skating in the heart of the park of Moscow.

The chilly nights will also inspire you to explore as the city is draped by a slew of multicoloured fairy lights glistening in the night.

See what the frosty and magical embrace of Moscow has to offer in its wintry seasons.
