3 reasons to visit
To find out what is hidden behind the Kremlin walls
The brick walls of the Moscow Kremlin have become the hallmark of not only the capital, but the whole country. But few travelers know that on the territory of the largest fortress in Europe (namely, the Moscow Kremlin occupies the top position in this rating, with a total area of more than 27 hectares), there are many interesting objects, including the largest artillery gun in the world and an ancient cathedral, where all Russian tsars were crowned before revolution.
To have a Moskva River Boat tour
One of the favorite activities of locals and tourists is a boat trip along the Moskva River by comfortable motor ships. The route allows you to see from the water all the main attractions of the capital in all its grandeur: the White House (the House of the Government of the Russian Federation), the Novodevichy Convent, the Luzhniki Stadium, Peter the Great Statue, the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, the Moscow Kremlin and Stalinist skyscrapers – the House on Kotelnicheskaya embankment, Lomonosov Moscow State University and “House on the Embankment”.
To visit underground “palaces for people”
From the very beginning of its construction, the Moscow Metro was conceived as a monument to Soviet power. The best artists, architects, sculptors of the USSR worked on the interiors of the stations, which can rightfully be called underground palaces. Today, out of 222 functioning stations of the Moscow Metro, 44 stations are named monuments of cultural heritage and 40 stations are monuments of architectural heritage.
