Moscow Overview
Moscow, the historical capital of the Russian Federation, is one of the most iconic cities in the world that has played a huge role in world history and the development of the Russian state. The city was once known to be the capital of the great Soviet Union and signs of an era bygone can still be found in the Kremlin Complex and the Red Square. The city is home to more than 10 million people and has always been popular as a city of contrasts. It is home to beautiful architectural gems and is also considered to be the political, business and scientific center of Russia.

Moscow has always been at the epicenter of Russian Arts and you can enjoy some of the finest classical music, ballet and theater in this city. Moscow also offers its visitors with a lively club scene as well as a wealth of historic sites to choose from. Trips to the Kremlin and the Red Square are a must, but don’t forget to check out the beautiful domes of the St. Basil’s Cathedral and the gigantic Kremlin Walls. However, the main delights that Moscow has to offer can be found in walking tours of its scenic neighborhoods.

The city’s existence dates all the way back to the year 1147 when it began its journey as an isolated town that was populated by a Finnish tribe. The city was completely sacked in the year 1237, but slowly rebuilt itself as it drew refugees from all over Russia. It emerged as the capital of Russia way back in the 1400s after Prince Dimitry Donskoi triumphed over the Mongols. There was a brief period when the capital of Russia was shifted from Moscow to St. Petersburg, but Moscow re-emerged as the Russian Capital under Lenin’s regime. The city might have had a difficult history, but it has managed to overcome every challenge thrown its way to emerge as one of the most cultural and delightful cities in the world. Today, Moscow is popular as a modern European city that has been built on rock-solid foundations and basic democratic principles.

Moscow has always been a fascinating place to visit, but it isn’t known to be cheap. Moreover, there are certain pockets of Moscow that are considered to be very unsafe for tourists.  The restaurants of Moscow are usually considered to be a luxury, but there are all sorts of local eateries and fast food joints that can be found all over the city. The perfect time to visit Moscow is during the warm summer months that last from May – August. The winters are best avoided due to the bitter cold and the dull and boring days.

A trip to Moscow is considered to be ideal for any traveler wanting to check out some of the most iconic sights and architectural wonders in the world as well as those wanting to explore what makes Russia tick. Some of the things worth exploring in Moscow include the iconic Red Square, the St. Basil’s Cathedral, the imposing Kremlin walls and trips to the 19th century Cathedral of Christ the Savior. Don’t forget to window shop at the GUM Department Store or try out the pelmini (Russian dumplings) and blinchiki (Russian pancakes).
