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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Red Square (Krasnaya Ploshchad) and Moscow Kremlin (Moskovsky Kreml). Escape the urban bustle at Meshherskoye and Lake Beloye (Vologda Oblast). Step out of Moscow with an excursion to Church of The Holy Virgin in Dubrovitsy--about 1h 10 min away. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Basil's Cathedral, steep yourself in history at Tserkov' Uspeniya Presvyatoy Bogoroditsy V Novodevich'yem Monastyre, admire the landmark architecture of Kremlin Walls and Towers, and take a stroll through Kuznetsky Most Street.
