What to do and where to stay in Russia’s fascinating capital.
One of the world’s most opulent cities, Moscow is the short break for lovers of grand architecture, world-class art and luxurious living. With 2017 marking 100 years since the Bolshevik Revolution, which saw the overthrowing of the Tsars and the world’s first Communist state, as well as the FIFA Confederations Cup taking place, now is the time to visit as the world watches Russia’s vibrant capital city.
Magnificent Moscow is home to extraordinary attractions such as iconic St Basil’s Cathedral, the lavish GUM State Department Store and the renowned Bolshoi Theatre. While it’s a superb city to splurge, there are many purse-friendly places for visitors too, including Lenin’s Mausoleum, the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour and Red Square.
