Russia's political, economic, and cultural center, Moscow remains the most populous inland city in the world, famed for its colorful history and rich architectural heritage.
Let the collections at Tsaritsyno Museum-Reserve and Kolomna Kremlin capture your imagination. Do some cultural sightseeing at Red Square and Diamond Fund (Almazny Fond). Get out of town with these interesting Moscow side-trips: Kolomna (Pyatnitskiye Vorota, Museum-Navigator: Recent Antiquity of Kolomna, & more). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Art Gallery of the European and American Countries of the XIX-XX centuries, appreciate the extensive heritage of Cathedral Square, get curious at The Museum of Cosmonautics, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of Christ the Saviour.

Built on a desolate swamp as a showcase capital of Imperial Russia, this grand city has certainly lived up to the expectations of its founder, Tsar Peter the Great.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Peterhof State Museum Preserve and Sobor Petra I Pavla. Popular historic sites such as Savior on the Spilled Blood and Peterhof Grand Palace are in your itinerary. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Tsarskoye Selo State Museum Preserve, see the interesting displays at Monplaisir Historical Palace Museum, explore the engaging exhibits at The Shadow Museum, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Isaac's Cathedral.
