  • Begin your day with a breakfast at home. Your partner will not know what's coming as you head out to metro station Taganskaya, where a small hint is hidden. Follow the cryptic clues that lead to small art displays scattered around hip, lesser-known neighborhoods of Moscow. Meet local artists, learn to appreciate their works, and maybe even purchase a piece to remind you of this special day. Wander around antique stores and small galleries, sharing thoughts about the pieces you see. For lunch, dive into a cozy cafe or a food court frequented by these creators.
  • After lunch, continue to follow the clues leading you to pop-up art installations and even an underground street-art workshop. You might get to try your hand at creating your own piece, under the gentle guidance of Moscow's vibrant young artists. As sunset approaches, find yourself at a locals' favorite, a hidden rooftop with breathtaking views of the city. Sip on a coffee or a cocktail, let the soft evening lights set the romantic mood.
  • Wrap up your art day at Dreamer's Place, a renowned quirky restaurant filled with antique furniture, neon lights, and eccentric art. Enjoy a well-prepared meal, have some laughs while discussing the exciting art you have seen throughout the day. The restaurant itself being an art piece, it's the perfect end to your secret art tour of Moscow.

Preparation steps:

  • To prepare for this date, you will need to put together the hints leading to each location. This could be in the form of riddles, maps, or scavenger hunts. Research the art scene in Moscow and choose a selection of venues that hold local art exhibits. Make sure to check if any of them require a prior booking. It's always a good idea to visit each location yourself beforehand to ensure everything is suitable and safe.
  • Cross-check the public transit routes or plan for taxi usage to ensure smooth transit between the locations. Do ensure you have a suitable place for lunch, whether it is a local food court or an artsy cafe. If the venues have opening or closing times, plan accordingly.
  • Book a table at Dreamer's Place restaurant for dinner. Check their reviews and menu beforehand to ensure they cater to you and your partner's dietary preferences. Prepare to buy some art souvenirs if you really fall for something on your tour.

Some tips:

  • This date mainly involves walking, make sure to wear comfortable shoes. It's advisable to carry snacks and a water bottle to keep you energized throughout the day. If your partner isn't well-acquainted with Art, take some time a day before to talk about it, introduce them to some great artists and their works.
  • Feel free to pause the art exploration to enjoy the city view from the rooftops or side cafes you come across. Do ensure you moderate your own and your partner's drinking if you'll be traveling via public transport.
  • Though this date is designed to be a surprise, make sure your partner is comfortable with long strolls and navigating the city using cryptic clues. The surprise should be pleasant, and not induce stress or discomfort -- the priority is to enjoy each other's company while experiencing the beauty of art in the heart of Moscow.
