Ready to see the real Moscow? Start with the monument to the founder of Moscow – the XII century’s Yuri Dolgoruky. Stroll along the central streets and little off-track lanes, some of which are several hundred years old, lined with famous Moscow mansions, theaters and restaurants.
Explore State Duma (Russian parliament), the Bolshoi Theatre, the Red Square, the Kremlin, the world-famous Metropol hotel with rooms worth over 10,000 USD per night, and so much more. Spot some of the most famous landmarks, including the spires of Orthodox Churches crowned with their signature golden domes, which boldly poke up between the Soviet-era buildings, known as Stalin's Sisters Houses.
Take a walk over the Moskva River and find yourself at Christ the Saviour Cathedral, one of the largest in the world. Finish this local Moscow experience with a cup of tea or coffee and an authentic handmade snack in a local Russian-style cafe.
