There is something eerily enchanting about Russia – behind the Iron Curtain and all that. A holiday to this most fascinating part of the world is sure to live long in the memory.
Of course, you want to ensure your trip is remembered for all the right reasons and, whilst claiming for travel accident compensation can help compensate you following an accident on holiday, it cannot replace the tarnished memories of the event itself.
Therefore, vigilance and preparation are the order of the day as you set about exploring this vast expanse of mystery, and where better to start than the Moscow Kremlin?
Avoiding slips, trips and falls in the Moscow Kremlin
Originally a fortified inner town, the Kremlin is the oldest part of Moscow and first appears in the annals of history way back in 1147.
However, don’t let it’s age fool you into thinking this is a crumbling area rife with loose cobbles and other causes of public trips and falls, far from it.
Since 1991 it has served as the official residence for the President of Russia and boasts sufficient splendour and wealth to back this status up.
Any tour or exploration of the area is sure to include substantial walking. Therefore, sensible shoes are strongly advised to avoid slips and trips.
Avoiding accidents getting to the Moscow Kremlin
Russia can, at times, be a densely detailed tapestry of road traffic accidents. Such is the inherent danger of driving on Russian roads, millions of motorists have taken to installing dashboard cameras to help with insurance claims.
Therefore, it’s advisable to book your visit through an official tour group who will provide transport rather then try and negotiate the roads yourself, an activity that could well result in serious road traffic injuries.
