A Quick Guide to Moscow

A Quick Guide to Moscow, Moscow, Russia (B)

Moscow was such a vibrant, colourful and surprisingly cosmopolitan city. It not only has the UNESCO world heritage sites to offer but some other attractions which will surprise and intrigue you to try. A lot of my fellow travellers were hesitant to visit as they weren’t sure what there was to do there beyond the Red Square, my how wrong they were! I usually do a top 10 experiences but Moscow had so much to see and do I’ve extended it to 12! Here’s my top experiences when visiting Russia’s capital. 

A must for anyone who visits here and it’s probably most peoples inspiration in doing so. The red square is spectacular at all times of day and is home to the famous St. Basil’s cathedral. 

You can read more about what to expect at the Red Square here. Or, if you want to see it in lights, you can see my experience of the Red Square at night. 

Another must see, is inside the Kremlin. You can book a tour in advance or on the day by purchasing tickets within the box office in Alexander gardens. Make sure you get tickets for a tour around the complex and the armoury, which is also an amazing museum which provides some insight into the Tsar’s that lived here!  ......
