Moscow Vacations, Tours & Travel Packages
On Russian vacations, Moscow is the capital of the country and serves as the major political, economic, cultural, and scientific centre. As well as the capital of the former Soviet Union, Moscow played a significant role in the development of Russia.
With a span of 1080 sq. km, Moscow features the Moskva River, which bends its way through the city, with the more prominent sites featured on the northern bank of the river. Moscow features various ring roads encircling the metropolis at various distances from the centre, where the Kremlin and Red Square are located.
An 860-year-old city, Moscow has many reminders of its imperial and Soviet past to be enjoyed on trips to Russia. Built between the 14th and 17th centuries, the Kremlin, which once served as the residence of the Great Prince as well as a religious centre, is currently the official residence of the President of Russia. The Kremlin is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with its neighbouring Red Square, which houses St. Basil’s Cathedral. As Moscow’s best-known landmark, the Kremlin represents the city’s political and historical power in Russia through the ages.
Moscow features many art museums, including the Pushkin Museum, The Institute of Russian Realist Art (IRRA), and the prominent Tretyakov Gallery, one of the world’s greatest which features a collection of mostly Russian art and icons.
Culturally rich, Moscow also offers Russian performance arts such as ballet, operatic music shows, and theatre. There are also two large circuses featured in Moscow.
Moscow offers visitors on Russian vacations plenty of shopping, cultural performances, a vibrant nightlife, and a glimpse into its history and beauty.
