Although it is the largest city in Europe, Russia’s capital is best explored on foot and through its metro maze. Moscow boasts of impressive architecture, art galleries, museums, churches and cathedrals, and numerous 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 bath houses famous. Two circuses, a puppet theater, water parks, and many other attractions make Moscow ideal for a family trip as well.

The heart of Moscow

Stay.com Editors' Note

The Kremlin is a walled fort that depicts so much of Russia’s history. This fortress is hundreds of years old and was originally built using white stone; however it was renovated in the 15th century using red brick. Sometimes the Moscow Kremlin is known as “The Kremlin”. This structure overlooks the Moskva River.

Enclosed in the fortress are churches, palaces and museums. It will probably take 2 days roaming around to truly enjoy everything the Moscow Kremlin has to offer. You’ll certainly be impressed with the historic architecture and interior design of many of the structures within this fortress.

Make sure to go inside the churches and take a look at the paintings. There are many tour guides available which will be more than happy to show you and your friends around. Access to the Moscow Kremlin is extremely convenient especially by metro.
