Moscow Travel Guide

Things to do in Moscow

For the most part, Moscow attractions are testament to the city''s turbulent past, but there are also a number of cultural and religious venues to enjoy in the city. Sightseeing in Moscow is best during the summer, from May until late August, when it is warmer and the days are longer. The foremost Moscow attractions are the Kremlin, a fortress dating back to the city''s foundation in 1147, and the multicoloured domes of St Basil''s Cathedral, both iconic Russian landmarks. Red Square is another must when sightseeing in Moscow. The Bolshoi Opera and Ballet Theatre is home to Moscow''s famed performance arts, while the Tretyakov Gallery exhibits traditional Russian masterpieces. Historic Moscow attractions include Poklonnaya Hill, which highlights Russia''s military strength against both Napoleon and Hitler, and the Borodino Panorama Museum which has interesting artefacts and displays from the Napoleonic wars. The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour commemorates the soldiers who died defending Russia in the early 19th century.
