A Journey to the Heart of Russia

Sleepless Moscow is one of many Russian wonders. This truly remarkable city offers a completely different experience: centuries-old buildings lengthening into modern skyscrapers, extravagant historical monuments, and unusual mix of European and modest Soviet architecture make Moscow like no other capital in the world.

Among Moscow's the most popular and important sights is the Red Square. It collected a great part of Moscow attractions such as the astonishing red-bricked Kremlin, the vibrant St. Basil's Cathedral, as well as nearby commercial and cultural district called Kitay-Gorod with the famous State Department Store or GUM. We also recommend visiting the Botanical Gardens that stand in contrast to the concrete jungles.

Expanding museums are a great chance to get acquainted with Russian history and culture. For example, you can pay a visit to the Tretyakov Gallery to marvel at masterpieces of iconic Russian artists from different times. In total, the Tretyakov Gallery holds an incredible number of more than 190 000 works.

Another hallmark of the city is hidden deep beneath the bustling surface. The Moscow Subway is the busiest metro system in Europe with annual passenger traffic of 2.5 billion. But the most fascinating are the stations: built in the style of socialist classicism, these underground palaces are the famous tourist attractions.

Moscow is a great and interesting city to discover. At any time and season, you will find its charming streets, cultural heritage, and modern conveniences irresistible to explore!
