Moscow
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Moscow

After a long time of absence and tank hunting I decided to visit Moscow with my son during the 75th victory parade on May 9th. I intend to visit the following places;
- Victory museum
- Central Armed Forces museum
- Monino Air Force Museum
- Patriotic Park site 1 and site 2 (the old Kubinka tank museum)

Since I have to do it with public transport/Yandex taxi/taxi, are there people with experience doing this?

Regards,
Lesley

Thanks, in this busy period, any hope for a (yandex) taxi to Monino and Patriotic Park and (also very important) back, in other words, do they pick you up at those remote locations.

Alone I'am not afraid to spend the night somewhere, but I have my 12 year old kid with me...

Regards,
Lesley

Taxi works well in Moscow region. Yandex, Gett, Uber...
You should expect 3 problems:
1. Time to wait due to high demand in your journey days.
2. Possible problems to find your taxi (sometimes they wait you not where you wait them).
3. Language barrier - suppose majority of the drivers don't know English.
