The best things to do in Moscow



There is no shortage of interesting stuff to do in Moscow and one could spend an entire trip discovering its historic and monumental buildings. One of the most outstanding
things to see in Moscow is the Kremlin, a set of civil and religious buildings located in the heart of the Moscow next to the Moskva river. Once home to the Czars, the complex's several palaces and cathedrals rank among the top Moscow attractions. Today, the Kremlin is the residence of the Russian President and the executive branch of the government.

To the east is Red Square, the most famous square in Moscow, located in the commercial district of Kitay-gorod. In the square you'll find one of the most emblematic places to visit in Moscow: the Cathedral of St. Basil, an Orthodox temple known worldwide for its colorful and bulbous domes.

Another of the top attractions in Moscow
is the National History Museum, a building of extraordinary
and invaluable beauty which houses relics of prehistoric tribes and
priceless works of art acquired by members of the Romanov dynasty. Despite demolition by the Soviets, some interesting religious sites like the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius, a World Heritage Site, have been preserved. A visit to discover its unique architecture is one of the best Moscow activities for art-lovers.

Some of other great cultural
things to do in Moscow
include the
Tretyakov Gallery and the Bolshoi Theatre. To find more on what to do in Moscow, have a look at these tips and recommendations from the minube community.
