along with the White House - where the Russian
government works. The north is a bit more relaxed and
casual, visitors here will find the Moscow zoo,
National Centre for Contemporary Arts and a number of
fine restaurants. The beautiful neo-gothic Cathedral

"Shinok" is by far the most authentic Ukranian cuisine restaurant in Moscow. The restaurant was opened in 1997 by Alexander Dellos and remains one of the best fine dining places in the capital of Russia. Shinok is the only restaurant with a real wildlife atrium with peacocks, a cow, rabbits, a goat and other animals. Our guests may taste the highlights of Ukranian and Russian cuisine: borscht, Russian salad, blinis, pickings, a huge variety of lard.
