Russia's political, economic, and cultural center, Moscow remains the most populous inland city in the world, famed for its colorful history and rich architectural heritage.
Appreciate the collections at Tsaritsyno Museum-Reserve and Armoury Chamber. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Kolomenskoye Historical and Architectural Museum and Reserve and Muzeon Art Park. Change things up with a short trip to The Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra in Sergiyev Posad (about 1h 20 min away). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Red Square, take in the spiritual surroundings of Krutitskoe Podvorye, admire the masterpieces at Art Gallery of the European and American Countries of the XIX-XX centuries, and see the interesting displays at Kuskovo Estate.
