Things to Do in Moscow

One of the biggest, oldest and most important cities in the world, Moscow has got plenty going for it. The home of vast empires, historic dynasties and global revolutions, the size of the iconic Kremlin is just an indication of Moscow’s importance. The memory of the revolution and USSR looms large but there is far more to the city than just the last 100 years. Architectural gems from its almost nine century history dot the city, world famous museums highlight its cultural impact and a vibrant nightlife and gastronomic scene attract a young hip crowd. With skyscrapers popping up all the time, this is a city with a future as big as its past.
