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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Red Square and Lenin's Mausoleum. Shop till you drop at Kournikova Gallery and Perlov Tea House. Change things up with these side-trips from Moscow: The Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra (in Sergiyev Posad), Ski Stadium Zorkiy (in Krasnogorsk) and Bird Park Vorobyi (in Vorobi). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Moscow Kremlin, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Basil's Cathedral, explore the different monuments and memorials at Tserkov' Uspeniya Presvyatoy Bogoroditsy V Novodevich'yem Monastyre, and get a taste of the local shopping with Kuznetsky Most Street.
