Khimki is a mid-sized city in North Moscow Oblast, adjacent to Moscow, with a prominent historical role in the Soviet aerospace industry, some very large upscale shopping malls, and fast-growing residential districts for Muscovite commuters. Khimki is not, however, a tourist destination, and there is relatively little to see and do.
