Moscow is one of the world’s most opulent and fascinating capitals. Gaze at the city’s dazzling array of churches and monasteries, and explore the Kremlin, one of Moscow’s most iconic attractions - once home to Russians Tsars and communist leaders.
Red Square is Moscow’s centrepiece displaying rich symbols of Russia’s turbulent past. St Basil’s Cathedral, one of the most famous pieces of architecture in the world, Lenin’s Mausoleum, and the prestigious GUM State Department Store are its main attractions. Travelling around Moscow couldn’t be easier – the metro is cheap, quick and reliable and most of the elaborate stations are attractions in themselves. The city’s restaurant scene has come a long way so decide between Central Asian or Western European cuisine, often in surroundings recreating the Soviet past. No trip to this incredible destination would be complete without catching a world-class ballet or opera performance at the Bolshoi Theatre.
