Local Guide

Moscow is a blend of modern, Soviet and traditional architecture, vibrant nightlife and world-class sights. You may not know the name St. Basil, but this cathedral has the famous onion domes that are the sight most people associate with Russia. Moscow has always been a haven for history buffs. The red-brick towers of the Kremlin occupy the founding site of Moscow; churches and monuments remember fallen heroes and victorious battles; and remains of the Soviet state are scattered all around the city. Even history is being examined in innovative ways, as new museums broach subjects long brushed under the carpet.
