Moscow

Moscow city landscape

Rich traditions, mesmerizing sights

Although it is the largest city in Europe, Russia’s capital is best explored on foot. Moscow boasts of great architecture, art galleries, museums, churches and cathedrals, parks and gardens. It’s a great place to go ice skating in the winter, or to experience the banya therapy (hot steam bath, followed by a whipping with birch branches) that made the Russian bathhouses famous. Two circuses, a puppet theater, water parks, and many other attractions make Moscow ideal for a family trip as well.
