Tank riding (Military safari in Moscow)
Why you have to try tank riding in Moscow? Russia is well-known for its rich military history. War has impacted many of Moscow’s prime attractions. Whether that war happened centuries ago or within the last 100 years, the history is there. With such a strong military reputation, it’s no surprise that many visitors want to learn more. Plenty of museums and tourist hot spots offer an abundance of information. However, your history lesson does not need to stop there. In Russia, you can not only learn but also experience.
It is currently legal in Russia for residents to purchase military rides, including tanks. The military vehicles have had the combat capacities stripped from the tanks. Safe to use, the civilians can traverse Russia’s forests and fields in the military beasts. Tank purchases are limited to Russian residents. As a result, many private companies offer tank riding as an experience package to tourists.

There are many tank riding experiences available when visiting Moscow. Most will be located just on the outskirts of the city, providing transport out to their military base.
