About city : Moscow

Moscow is a very beautiful city. It is the largest megalopolis in Europe with population of 12 million people. Moscow has many peculiar historical sights, which you couldn’t find in other countries, as Russian architectural style is different from traditional Gothic buildings of Europe. And you shouldn’t be afraid that your vacation won't be comfortable enough. Cost of living in Moscow is very high, even comparing with Europeans standards. 

In the first day you'd better go to the center of the city, and visit the Red Square and the Kremlin with all its environs – Alexander Garden, Manezhnaya Square, and Chinatown where there remained some buildings of the old Moscow. It would be rather interesting to walk on the two bridges over Moscow-river, which are on both sides of the Kremlin. There you can have a very beautiful view of the Kremlin and the rest of the city. In the walking distance from the Kremlin there is the Cathedral of the Christ the Saviour. You'd better visit it in the first day too. In the evening you may go to one of theatres where you can enjoy Russian ballet or opera (and it is better to get the tickets in advance).
In the next day you should visit the Tretyakov Gallery, where there is a very interesting collection of Russian painting, which you could hardly find in any other gallery of the world. In the afternoon you may visit one of the estate parks of Moscow: Kolomenskoye, Tsaritsyno or Novodevichiy Convent. The first of them is most interesting. Kolomenskoye is a landscape park on the high bank of Moscow-river, where there is the Church of the Ascension, included by UNESKO in the world heritage list. In the evening, if the weather is fine, you can visit the observation deck on the Vorobyovy Gory, giving a beautiful view of the entire Moscow. Nearby there is one of the most famous Stalin sky-scrapers – the Moscow University. You can also go down Moscow-river in a pleasure boat.

In Moscow and its environs there are many interesting places, but if you have seen the main ones, described above, it is as well very desirable to visit Petersburg, the northern capital of the country.  Only one night in the train and you'll see quite different city and quite different Russia.
