Moscow
The Essential
Moscow unfolds like the pages of a history book about Holy Russia and the former USSR. While the modern buildings in the new quarter of Moskva-City may strike the tourist as incongruous, the historic district around the inescapable Kremlin boasts a unique legacy from the city of the Tsars and Soviets. For 21C visitors this sprawling city is both exhausting and exciting. To escape the noisy traffic, take the metro and explore its dazzling stations or enjoy a bit of peace and quiet in its prestigious art museums.
