Why Go on a Moscow, Russia Vacation

A city with palaces alongside business towers, royal gardens in view of shopping districts, and historical landmarks as public transportation hubs, Moscow is truly a city unlike any other.

More than eight centuries of history have shaped this metropolis into the bustling, populous, vibrant destination it is today. The prominent combination of the past and the future make Moscow one of the greatest cities on Earth.

The first reference to Moscow was made by Yuri Dolgorukiy in 1147, nine years before the first wall of the city was erected. Moscow grew and developed over the next few centuries and in 1327 took on the title of a capital city for the first time.

The principality of Vladimir-Suzdal elected Moscow as its capital due to its advantageous location on the Volga River. It was because of this location that Moscow became known as the Grand Duchy of Moscow.

Since the collapse of the Soviet regime, Moscow has experienced a rebirth of creativity and life. The oppressive rulers and strict censorship of Russia’s past were replaced by the open and welcoming arms of tourism and the exciting possibility of a fresh start. Where once there were empty warehouses and imposing, dreary buildings are now eclectic art displays and hip young clubs.

Museums are expanding, historic sites are renovating, and the entire city is a flurry of rejuvenation and hope. Tourism to Moscow grows by the year. With architecture known worldwide for its stunning combination of modern and historic trends, this city is a treasure trove of eye candy and intellectual stimulation.

During your Moscow tour, make sure to see sites such as St. Basil's Cathedral, a gorgeous onion-domed wonder of worship. Plus, add the Kremlin to you Moscow itinerary, the mighty red-brick fortress. Also, we advise exploring the Botanical Gardens that sweep against the base of skyscrapers, creating an atmosphere of adventure that begs to be enjoyed!

A city that combines elegance and practicality, politics and ideology, cultural appreciation and modern conveniences, Moscow is a city one falls in love with at first sight!

Best Things to Do During Moscow Travel

  • Stop by the colorful St. Basil's Cathedral
  • Explore the Moscow Kremlin
  • Immerse in world-class art in the Tretyakov Gallery
  • Taste delicious Russian cuisine
