There’s always something to see and do in majestic Moscow, with Russia’s cosmopolitan capital beckoning travellers with attractions to suit all tastes. Most start in Red Square, with St Basil’s Cathedral’s colourful onion-shaped domes and the imposing Kremlin high on just about all agendas here. Such sights are highlights in this most historic hub. Yet this is just scratching the surface, and there’s a great deal more to Moscow.
This is a place rich in the arts, and culture vultures will be drawn to take in a ballet at the Bolshoi. There are also green spaces aplenty, with Gorky Park popular with those keen to take a break from the city’s hectic streets. There’s no bad time to visit Moscow, although to see the city under snowfall is a truly magical experience. Russia doesn’t always have the best reputation when it comes to welcoming visitors, but take no notice. Visiting Moscow is a must.
