Moscow: 9 Must-Visit Sites
Moscow is the capital of Russia and one of the largest cities in the world with a population of more than 12 million inhabitants.
The city has a history that starts approximately in the 12th century and has since received many influences from different cultures. Tartars, Mongols, Swedes and French are some of the countries and cultures that have left their mark in the history of the city.
Today Moscow is the most prosperous city in Russia, although it has also become one of the most expensive in the world, especially for the price of housing. It is also known to be the city in the world with the most multimillionaires.
From a tourist point of view Moscow is an appetizing destination thanks to its historical attractions and the opportunity it offer to discover the past and present of a country like Russia.
The Wonderful Red Square, a Local Meeting Point
The largest square in Moscow is Red Square, which is 330 meters long by 70 meters wide and is the main meeting point of the city and a clear starting point for discovering the charms of the city, several of which are located in the square itself and its surroundings.
The Kremlin: Political and Tourist Centre
This complex of huge buildings serves as the political center of the city, although inside it you can visit a diamond museum, the bell tower of Ivan the Great and a military museum.
Appreciate the Singular Cathedral of St. Basil
St. Basil's Cathedral is possibly the most representative and recognizable icon of the city. This great church was built by order of Ivan the Terrible in the 16th century and has remained to this day as one of the main exponents of the Russian Muscovite style. Despite the name, it is not the Moscow Cathedral, since the one that serves for this purpose is the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour.
The Magnificent Cathedral of Christ the Saviour
This cathedral was originally built in the 19th century, although later, in 1931 it was completely destroyed. After several reconstruction attempts, its recovery began in 1994 and remains since its completion as the highest Orthodox church in the world.
Visit the imposing Mausoleum of Lenin
Undoubtedly, it is one of the must-visit in Moscow. The possible visit is usually very short, because although entering the mausoleum and seeing Lenin's embalmed body is possible, it is always guarded by several military personnel who do not allow to stay long.
Stroll on the Moscow Grand Metro
It is one of the oldest meters in the world and is the third longest. Currently the Moscow Metro has 12 lines and 196 stations that make it a very efficient transport system. If the Moscow Metro is known for something, it is for its palatial stations that have earned it the name of an underground palace. A real attraction of the city.
Arbat Street, Commercial and Historical Area
In the historic center of the city you will find this street, about one kilometer long, which has been one of the main shopping areas of the city since the 15th century.
Shopping Tourism in Izmailovo Market
The market is located in the northeastern part of the city, near the Partizanskaya metro station. Along the market you can find dozens of picturesque stalls with antiques, souvenirs and lots of curious objects that you usually need to haggle in case you want to buy one. An ideal place to look for an authentic and original memory.
The Amazing Moscow State History Museum
A really interesting way to get closer to Russian history and culture is to go to the State Museum of History, which takes a complete tour from the Palaeolithic through the different historical stages to today's Russia.
