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.
