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 Moscow Kremlin and Bulgakov's House Museum-Theater. Red Square and Church of The Holy Virgin are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Take a break from Moscow with a short trip to Bird Park Vorobyi in Vorobi, about 1h 45 min away. There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, contemplate the long history of Kremlin Walls and Towers, don't miss a visit to House of Tselibeyeva - Karpova, and get curious at Eksperimentanium.

Built on a desolate swamp as a showcase capital of Imperial Russia, this grand city has certainly lived up to the expectations of its founder, Tsar Peter the Great.
Do some cultural sightseeing at The State Hermitage Museum and Grand Peterhof Palace. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Saint Isaac's Cathedral and Palace Square. There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, take an in-depth tour of Kazan Cathedral, browse the exhibits of Peter and Paul Fortress, and examine the collection at Russian Museum of Ethnography.
