Not many capital cities offer the elegance and beauty that Moscow has to offer. Located in western Russia, Moscow is Russia’s cosmopolitan capital city.
Moscow is well-known for being the home of the iconic Kremlin, a fortified structure overlooking the Moskva River and the current home to the president. A place where history is revived, you can be sure to find a mix of the old and the new while walking through its mesmerizing streets and old buildings.
Immerse yourself in the culture by walking through the Red Square, Russia’s symbolic centre. Visit the State Historical Museum and take a step back in history. Lastly, don’t miss the iconic St. Basil’s Cathedral with its bright colours and onion-shaped domes.
