The Moscow Tourism Committee has announced 10 places that are the most preferred by the Chinese who visit the capital: the top three includes the Kremlin, the Circus on Tsvetnoy Boulevard and the Novodevichy Convent.

At the end of 2018, China ranked first among foreign countries in the number of tourist visits to Moscow: this indicator made up more than 803 thousand. Chinese tourists love the city centre and most often choose accommodation in the central city district.

The top must-see facilities are the Kremlin and Red Square. Unlike guests from other countries, the Chinese mainly book tours to these places. The Kremlin, Red Square and its environs are the main objects of their photo shoots.

The Circus on Tsvetnoy Boulevard ranks second. According to Moscow Tourism Committee, the majority of Chinese tourists are people of retirement age who consider themselves great connoisseurs of circus art, and the Russian circus is a classic example of this genre.

The third line in the list of preferences is taken by the Novodevichy Convent, which is included into a standard sightseeing tour of Moscow. However, most often the Chinese are interested not so much in the monastery complex itself, as in the Novodevichy cemetery, because the leader of the Chinese Communist Party, Wang Ming and his wife were buried exactly there.

The fourth line belongs to the Sparrow Hills (Vorobyovy Gory) and Moscow State University. Chinese tourists enjoy photographing Moscow from the viewing platform on the Sparrow Hills.

Tretyakov Gallery with a collection of Russian fine art ranked fifth, whereas the Exhibition of Economic Achievements (VDNKh) ranked sixth. Tourists from China are very fond of buildings with unusual architecture, especially Stalinist one. The central pavilion of VDNKh is incredibly similar to the pavilion of the exhibition centre in Shanghai, which was built by Soviet specialists as a sign of friendship between China and the former Soviet Union.

The Moscow Metro is also a popular tourist destination for Chinese tourists, is takes the seventh place. Most often tourists take photos of Belorusskaya, Mayakovskaya, Novoslobodskaya and Komsomolskaya metro stations.

Kolomenskoye Museum-Reserve ranked eighth: tourists like walking there. Due to the abundance of historical buildings, museums and souvenir shops, Stary Arbat that ranked ninth is also popular.

The list is closed by GUM and TSUM stores, where Chinese tourists prefer to buy souvenirs - first of all, Russian nesting dolls. The list of the most popular purchases also includes scarves, porcelain and jewelry. During city tours, the guests from China also look at Stalin's skyscrapers, the Three Station Square, Lubyanka Square.
