Moscow is the city of contrasts, mixing the simple Bohemian and the glittering glamorous! Do not be surprised to find a church dating from the 16th century covered in gold next to a glass building from the 1990’s. Here, salty caviar is washed down with sweet “shampanskoye”. What represents this spirit better than Moscow’s underground railway? For a few roubles you can travel between stations decorated with chandeliers and marble.

Do and see
Moscow might be one of the world's most exciting cities with a mishmash of the old and the new. You will definitely be able to fill your time here surrounded by history, art, culture and great food. Visit St. Basil’s Cathedral, learn more about the Gulag and go for long walks in Gorky Park… Moscow certainly has many ways to enchant you.
The Armoury in The Kremlin
If you yearn for gold, velvet and precious stones, you must visit the Armoury. The treasures that have been collected over the centuries by the Russian tsars and princes can be found here. Some magnificent examples are the Fabergé egg and Catherine the Great’s coronation dress.
The Red Square and The Lenin Mausoleum
Enclosed by GUM, the Kremlin and Vasilij Cathedral, the Red Square stands proud. This is also the place where Lenin rests in his mausoleum. Since 1924 he has been as carefully guarded as he was embalmed.
St. Basil’s Cathedral
With its round, brilliantly coloured cupolas, St. Basil’s Cathedral truly looks like a fairy-tale castle. Ivan the Terrible had it built around 1550 in order to celebrate a victory over the Tartars. Today the cathedral is one of the world’s architectural wonders.
The Tretiakov Gallery
With its 62 halls and 100,000 paintings, the Tretiakov Gallery contains the world’s largest collection of Russian art. Fortunately, these are not all displayed together, but a few at a time.
