The best way of describing the heart of Russia is as one big open-air museum. Moscow lives and breathes art and culture. The Kremlin, majestic Red Square (red signifying beautiful) and the cherry on the cake, St. Basil’s cathedral, dating from the 16th century. The then tsar believed the building to be so breathtaking, that he ordered for the architect to be blinded so that he could never emulate his masterpiece. There is so much history hiding behind every door - a true paradise for history lovers.
Transport as you’ve never known it
Who'd have thought that a tram ride could be the highlight of a city break? It is in Moscow! Moscow’s tram stations are among the world’s finest and have art deco ceilings, old chandeliers, marble cladding and magnificent murals. It is so impressive that you question whether you’re actually in a tram station... or a palace!
Discover the culture and visit the theatre for the best performances
Every weekend, the locals don their finest clothes and head over to the opera or ballet.
