Many travelers consider Moscow an intimidating and mysterious place, but Russia’s capital is known to be quite inviting. This city has seen enough history to fill the pages of countless textbooks, and has emerged thriving. Visitors can start their Moscow adventure in the Red Square, the most popular area of the entire city.

Here, you’ll find the Kremlin, the famous fortified complex containing towers, palaces, cathedrals, and even the official residence of the President of Russia. On the south side of the square sits Saint Basil’s Cathedral, perhaps the most recognizable building in all of Russia, with its swirling multi-colored domes. Even the metro stations in Moscow are a sight to behold. Stations like Mayakovskaya and Novokuznetskaya serve as tourist attractions all their own, with intricate paintings and ornate carved ceilings.
