Moscow, Russia

The capital of the largest country in the world sounds stately, doesn't it? Glorious Moscow, without a doubt, corresponds to this title. Being a renowned metropolis that hardly ever sleeps, vibrant Moscow is a real adventure waiting for you to happen! When getting to the Moscow city center you may find yourself overwhelmed by the dense concentration of exceptional landmarks every Russian citizen is proud of. The Red Square, framed by the jagged red-brick Kremlin Wall and crowned by the colorful domes of the iconic St. Basil Cathedral, is traditionally the best place to start your Moscow city tour, followed by visiting such marvels as the Cathedral of Christ the Savior and the treasure trove of Russian art, the Tretyakov Gallery. Even an ordinary subway ride in Moscow turns into an exciting journey as the Moscow Metro is considered one of the fanciest in the world! In any case, dazzling Moscow deserves hundreds of compliments or at least one visit to understand that they are true!...
