About Moscow

Moscow, the capital of Russia, is one of the most important capital cities of the world. The city is famous for its historical Red Square, Kremlin Palace, and St. Basil’s Cathedral.

Another point of attraction is the Moscow subway. Many of its stations are comparable to art galleries with beautiful paintings, installations, murals, and mosaics. At the same time, the city is large and sprawled out and there is very heavy road traffic.

In this city of over 10 million, there has emerged a small number of very rich people following the fall of the Soviet Union. These billionaires, called oligarchs, usually reside in Moscow. It is for this reason that you can find many famous high-end brands in the city, and it's also why Moscow is one of the most expensive cities in the world.

Winters are very cold in Moscow; if you want to visit we suggest you do so during the spring months. You can enjoy the history of this city as you walk along its streets. Must-sees include the Kremlin Palace, St. Basil’s Cathedral, Red Square and the historical buildings in the square. We also recommend taking a boat tour.

Flights land at Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow. It is 30 km to town, which may be reached by subway or buses.
