Everything about Moscow exudes of magnificence! Embark on a fascinating journey to one of the most amazing cities in the world.
In a city where anything is possible, Moscow boasts the biggest building in the world and some of the most expensive cups of coffee around the globe. Considered to be the most luxurious city in the world, Moscow is going through a burst of creative energy that has resurged following the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
With a population of around 13 million, Moscow has played a momentous and forefront role in the development of the Russian state and history. Over 860 years old, the city still bears the scars of its imperial and Soviet past and it is packed with museums and monoliths.
Former factories and warehouses have been converted into large art galleries and underground clubs whilst venues such as the Pushkin Fine Arts Museum are constantly expanding. Moscow theatres give recognition to Tchaikovsky and Chekhov whilst also promoting up-and-coming composers and playwrights.
But that is not all. Moscow is home to several wine bars, charming coffee shops, sushi restaurants and beer bars as well as exclusive nightclubs, blues bars and art cafes.
The city is also a haven for history buffs. The red-brick towers of Kremlin tower high over Moscow whilst churches and monuments remember battles and war heroes all around the capital.
Whether you prefer the suburb of Sergiyev Posad, home to the largest monastery in Russia or Snegiri, where the Battle of Moscow took place during World War II, there are plenty of places enriched with history within Moscow worth exploring.
