Getting to know Moscow: 1.4 million free tourist guidebooks for 2018 World Cup fans

Tourist maps and guidebooks will be issued in six languages: Russian, English, Chinese, German, French and Spanish.

2018 FIFA World Cup fans from other cities and countries will receive free Moscow tourist guidebooks and pamphlets. Up to 960,000 maps and 480,000 guidebooks will be distributed in six languages: Russian, English, Chinese, German, French and Spanish.

The pamphlets will contain information on Spartak Stadium and the Luzhniki Big Sports Arena and match schedules as well as information about museums, theatres and tourist routes and emergency service contacts. They will also direct fans to the Fan Fest venue on Vorobyevy Gory.

“Tourist maps and booklets will help tourists get around Moscow. They include tips on paying for public transport, where the best observation points and parks are and where to go in case of an accident or emergency,” said Nikolai Gulyayev, Head of the Moscow Department of Sport and Tourism.

Maps and guide pamphlets will be distributed several days ahead of the championship. They will be available at airports, railway stations and tourist information centres as well as at hotels.

The World Cup will run from 14 June through 15 July in 11 Russian cities: Moscow, St Petersburg, Kazan, Sochi, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Kaliningrad, Ekaterinburg and Saransk. Moscow will host 12 matches as well as the opening and closing ceremonies. The main events will take place at the Luzhniki Big Sports Arena, with four group stages, including the opening match, a Round of 16 match, a semifinal and the final match. Another five matches will be held at Spartak Stadium: four group stage matches and a Round of 16 match.

Moscow has also issued recommendations for those who want to rent out apartments during the World Cup. They include advice, for example, how to find potential tenants.
